Pictures have a way of bringing content to life, and that’s why it’s always a good idea to add some images to your LinkedIn profile. These images will catch the eye of whoever is on your profile, and make it stand out from other profiles. The best part is that it’s super easy to get started adding pictures and even charts to your LinkedIn profile.
Adding Pictures To Your Profile
You can images to each work experience section on your LinkedIn profile and the summary section as well. That means that for each work experience you describe you can add images. If there were any events during your NSS or an internship that you’ve got pictures of, you can add those pictures while describing the overall work experience.
Actually adding the pictures is simple enough. All you have to do is click the add section button and then choose work experience. You can then fill out the various fields with details regarding that particular work experience. Once you’ve done that, you can scroll to the bottom of the add experience screen and you’ll see an upload button for images. That’s it. Click the button and upload your pictures. Adding charts like bar or line graphs and pie charts is also possible. Here’s how we’re going to do that:
Adding Graphs To Your Profile
You can add graphs to your LinkedIn profile following the same steps above for adding an image to a work experience section in your profile. The only difference is that the image you’re uploading is the chart, which you can create easily in PowerPoint.
First of all, you’re going to need some data to chart. An example could be the number of people you managed to sell to during your sales internship. You can easily display a graph that shows your daily sales at the beginning of the internship, and how they grew before you left. To create the chart, all you have to do is click Insert and then click Chart. Next, you choose the type of chart and fill in the details.
Once you’re done adjusting your chart (colours, size, etc) you can export your slide as an image (preferably jpg) and upload it to your LinkedIn profile.
