The Featured section of your LinkedIn profile is where you can showcase your company products, show off a video, or display your sales sheet or PowerPoint presentations. You can also use it to feature your news articles and LinkedIn posts.
To add the Featured section to your profile, click “Add profile section” and then under Featured, choose whether to add a post, article, link, or media. A large image will show from your featured content and you can add a caption to provide useful details.
Use it to feature posts that you’ve authored or re-shared; articles you’ve published on LinkedIn; external media, such as images; or links, for example to your YouTube videos. By using the Featured section, you can pick and choose the content you want people to see.
You can include as many items as you want in your Featured section, but only two will show until profile visitors click the arrow to view more. Manage what you would like featured by adding and removing content or by reordering your selections. To feature content as you’re posting it on your LinkedIn news feed, click the More icon from the top right of the post to add it to your Featured section.
Show off your best with the LinkedIn Featured section on your profile!
