The new (!) way to add sections to your #LinkedIn profile

Yup, LinkedIn made more changes. I showed you some earlier, with ideas to optimize them.

I have a coaching client who needed to add the entire Accomplishments section to his newly-improved profile.

I started to demo it and … um, er, it used to be in the top left corner, but it’s gone!

What to do?

I asked the Help Center.

And I admit, I did not know where they moved this function, but like most things it was moved, but right in front of my nose!

The Help Center inquiry told me (with my amendments for clarity):

Adding Sections to Your Profile

Displaying more of your professional accomplishments and interests can help to enhance your profile. You can add the following sections to your profile from the drop down on top-most section on your profile:

  • Background
  • Skills
  • Accomplishments

To add sections to your profile:

  1. Go to the top green line on any LinkedIn page.
  2. Click the Me icon at the top of your LinkedIn homepage.
  3. Click View profile.
  4. Click Add profile section in your introduction card.

So using my profile page, showing a red arrow where to find the unused sections so far and the drop down table of those available to you (your list may be different from mine):

Now we all know where they “hid” it…
