If you’re new to LinkedIn, step back a bit and review an earlier social media assignment. Perhaps this one or this one. If you’ve been using LinkedIn for a while, casually or even strategically, you need to know about a new, profile-enhancing feature on the platform.
You can now add sections to your profile to more easily clarify items like certifications or organizations to which you belong. Here’s a list of the section options offered by LinkedIn:
- Honors and Awards
- Test Scores
- Volunteer Experience & Causes
To add any of these items, log in to your LinkedIn account, select Profile, then edit Profile from the top menu. Scroll down past the main part of your profile and just after that you will see a green plus sign and the Add Sections option. Click on that and follow the instructions to add individual sections and enhance your profile.
