How to Embedding Video into Your LinkedIn Profile

Add a video résumé or simply share an interesting video on your LinkedIn profile to give it some personality and attract attention from hiring managers. Adding a video to your profile takes a little tweaking, but it isn’t that difficult. Here are the general steps:

  1. Upload your video to YouTube (if you haven’t already done so).

    You need to be able to search for and find this video later.

  2. Log in to your LinkedIn account, choose More from the top menu, and then click on Get More Applications.

  3. Select the Google Presentation app, install it, and make sure it displays on your profile page.

  4. Sign in to your Google account in the Google Presentation app.

    Your Google account is your Gmail or YouTube account if you have one. If not, you can create a Google account in two minutes.

  5. Click on Create a Presentation.

    This button takes you to Google Docs where you can create a new presentation.

  6. Navigate to the Insert menu in the new blank presentation document, and click on Video.

  7. Search YouTube until you find your video and then click on Select Video.

  8. Expand the size of this video to the same size as the slide.

  9. Title the presentation and then click on Save Now.

  10. Go to the Share drop-down menu and click on Publish/embed.

  11. Navigate back to your LinkedIn profile and refresh the page.

  12. Select your newly created presentation and click on Post to Profile.

Go ahead and double-check your profile to make sure the video shows up. Pretty cool, right?
