Recently, one my my work covered in some news websites. Should I add them to my linkedin profile. If the answer is yes, which section?

If you worked in a company that recently recieved positive media exposure, you should of course have it listed on your LinkedIn profile, under Experience and/or Organizations.

After you've added this, you will see some options for the entry. One of these is adding a relevant link, which in your case, could be a link to the article on the news websites. It looks something like this:

Position details

You can use the Link button to show something that you're particularly proud of from your time at the company in question.

  • I think I asked my question wrong. I made some individual project about my work field and it was published on news websites

  • @talis - That's fine. You were probably still affiliated with some organization (whether you were a student at a school, or working for a company), so you can still add it as a link to that position. If your work was completely independent, you can instead publish a post linking to your work. You can do this from the front page of LinkedIn, at the top of your news feed.

  • I actually don't know. I've never written one, so I don't know if it shows up directly on your profile. But I would agree with your decision to post is as a link to a position you held. That should make it visible. Additionally, when you apply for a job in the future, you can specifically point out the existence of this article on your CV or in the application.

Linkin is the Facebook of shameless self promotion. Write a post that links to the news story. Add self-promotional text to that post.

  • you could say just no

  • @talis - But the answer was yes. As far as I can tell, he wasn't being sarcastic.

  • @Alec I thought he was being sarcastic. So in which category should I put them?

  • @talis - I added my own answer, as it was a bit more substantial than I could fit into a comment.

  • Sorry, I was being a bit dry, but the answer is yes. When I do something like publish a blog at my company I knock up a quick linkin post to promote it. You can also attach links to job positions if you think it's a huge success.
