Great new addition to LinkedIn

February 21, 2020 0 By Phil Gee

LinkedIn is rolling out a new profile feature which will enable you to highlight key achievements and updates in a separate ‘Featured’ section right at the top of your LinkedIn profile.

The new section will sit below your main profile header, and above your Activity listing.

LinkedIn says that you need to have published a post or article on the LinkedIn platform to be able to add it to your Featured section. So you can’t use anyone elses content.

You could post a LinkedIn update that links direct to your website, then add the link into your Featured section, providing a direct link from your LinkedIn page.

Once you’ve added some to your Featured section, you’ll then be able to edit how it’s displayed, and re-order the content. You’ll also be able to delete anything from your Featured section at any time.

It’s a great addition from LinkedIn, providing a new way to showcase your favourite content, achievements, services and more.
