How to Sign "I work for..." in Sign Language

Engaging in small talk is a common social occurrence that happens in various settings, be it during a casual gathering, a business meeting, or a chance encounter in a coffee shop. In such situations, it's quite common for the conversation to veer towards one's profession or place of work. Consequently, it would be beneficial to know how to express and sign the name of your employer or the company you work for. This could prove to be an interesting point of conversation and a chance for you to share more about your professional life.
