LinkedIn continues to add great features to help us connect, communicate, and build our professional network. The latest enhancement gives you the ability to easily use visual content to share your professional story.
Now you can enhance your LinkedIn profile by including images, videos, presentations and more. This isn’t reserved for artists or those who work in visual fields, anyone can take advantage of this new feature to tell their story. Share data and results in the form of charts, demo your latest software enhancement, show off the latest project your architecture firm designed – you’re limited only by your imagination.
You can add visual files to the Summary, Experience, and Education sections of your profile. Edit your profile and look for the Add File icon. I’ve circled it in red in the screenshot below (click the image to enlarge).
I keeping with social media practices, other members can “like” or comment on what you’ve posted.
Here is a short SlideShare presentation from LinkedIn showing some examples of how people with different job functions can enhance their profiles with visual content.
