I meet a fair number of people who spend nearly a “lifetime” at the same employer (or at least more than 2 jobs in succession up the ladder).

It’s been a struggle to show this well, although I thought I had a trick to show this.

No trick needed any more. Now you can show your progression under the same employer in your Experience section of your LinkedIn profile:

{You probably already know how to do the italicized portion below:}

To add the experience section and a position:

  1. Click the Me icon at the top of your LinkedIn homepage.
  2. Click View profile.
  3. Click Add profile section in your introduction card.
  4. Under the Background dropdown, click the Add icon next to Work experience.
  5. In the Add experience pop-up window, enter your information into the fields provided.
  6. Click Save.

{Here’s the new way to show this:}

Once the Experience section has been added to your profile, you can include more positions at any time by clicking the Add icon within the Experience section, and filling out the fields provided. To edit existing experiences, tap the pencil icon.

Go for it, show those jobs and how they make you more valuable at that single employer as you added more layers to your experience. Progression is a wonderful thing.
