I'm an IT professional, who has worked in different positions, in different companies for the last 8 years. Since March, I've transitioned to an Independent Freelancing Consultant Role, where I provide consultancy to several Different organizations.

What I mean by this, is that I'm not working at any one place full time. I might work for Company A for 15 hours/Week, Company B for 15 hours/Week & Company C for 10 hours/week. Some of the consulting Gigs are short term, about 2 months. To confirm, I've not founded, nor own any LLC or similar.

When I go to add this position on Linkedin, I see that the Company Name is required, and It seems that there is no good way to add this kind of information to my Linkedin profile.

How do I indicate this role on Linkedin, and add all the skills, and roles?

    Just put Freelance Consulting in there. Your work will be bulleted underneath so no one will care that it's not an official company name. Jul 16, 2016 at 5:42
