Show what you’ve learned

When you signed up with LinkedIn, you might have been asked to provide your basic education information. Maybe you have more than one school to list, or perhaps you didn’t create a full listing for the schools you put down upon registration. In either case, you can go back to make sure that your profile is up to date and lists all your education. Listing your education allows you to:

  • Showcase your relevant qualifications

  • Prove your academic level

  • Make yourself easier to find

  • Expand your network within alumni

How much education should you list?

If a high school education is the highest level of education that you have, this is where you start (no need to list out middle or elementary school). From there, you can also list out any undergraduate and post-graduate education.

However, it’s important to note that this area is not just limited to traditional schooling. You should also list any vocational education, certification courses, and any other stint at an educational institution that matters to your career or personal direction.

Here’s a quick walkthrough video on how to edit your Education in your LinkedIn profile.
