In LinkedIn profile there are two sections, which can describe your professional background: Experience and Projects.
Let say I performed one year paid-project at the university, where should I store this item? If I write this item as a project, my career/experience records will have kind of «blank space».
To the best of my knowledge, the relevant article (Adding and Editing Projects on Your Profile) at the official LinkedIn Help Center doesn't address this issue.
Is there any difference between these two sections from the indexing/candidate searching point of view?
