LinkedIn Tip : Reorder

December 3, 2010

There is so much you can do with LinkedIn. At Networking Coach, we can easily give a whole week of courses on LinkedIn alone. So, let me share another tip with you.

Did you know that you can reorder the sections on your LinkedIn profile?

How? It’s really easy via drag-and-drop! The headers of each of the sections on your “Edit Profile” page now have handles that can be dragged. To reorder a section, all you need to do is click and drag one of these section headers up or down the body of your profile. When you release the mouse, the section will drop into place where you dragged it, and your adjustment will take effect immediately.

Why would you change the order? Well, it gives you the ability to highlight the skills, expertise, and/or experiences that make you stand out. If you are just graduating, it makes more sense to have your education first. If you are looking for a job, it might be a good idea to share your expertise through the Applications first.

Not sure how to do it? Watch this YouTube clip and see for yourself how easy it really is!
