New Mistake Everyday - Preposition - The Missing 'at'

A couple days ago I watched a documentary entitled "TPB AFK", that is an acronym for "The Pirate Bay - Away from Keyboard". I found that the movie was inviting and therefore I checked out the official website of Pirate Parties International in which the movie features. On the website, I acknowledged that the party is looking for a volunteer. Like ships that pass in the night, I sent my resume with a link to my LinkedIn profile.

When I logged on to my LinkedIn account today, I noticed that the Co-Chairman just clicked the link. Having ants in my pants, I tweeted, "My profile has been checked out by the Co-Chairman Pirate Parties International. He used Comic Sans for his presentation. OMG! That's a sin!" Can you figure out my mistake? Yes, there is no preposition between the position and the company. Hence, it should be written as follows, "My profile has been checked out by the Co-Chairman at Pirate Parties International. He used Comic Sans for his presentation. OMG! That's a sin!"

By the way, why did I use 'at' instead of 'in'? Can you guess? :D
