Contact Information

Make it easy for people

As with all of the sections of your LinkedIn profile, you are free to share as much information as you are comfortable with. However, when it comes to your contact information, we suggest making this as easy as possible for people to reach out to you if they’re eager to learn more.

The areas you are able to place into your contact information on LinkedIn are:

  • Direct link to your LinkedIn profile

  • Email address

  • Phone number

  • Website

  • Instant messenger accounts

  • Your birthday

What you list is going to be dependent on what you need to showcase about yourself, but at the very least we suggest making sure you have the direct link to your profile an email address visible. Likewise, if a digital portfolio of your work is available and often mandatory for jobs that you apply to, make sure that this link is available in the “website” area.
