Adding Multimedia to the Education Section of Your LinkedIn Profile

By Donna Serdula

Add documents, photos, links, videos, and presentations to your entries in the Education section of your LinkedIn profile. Are you proud of your thesis? Upload it to your profile! Is there a picture you’d like to include? Upload it to your profile!

Follow these steps to add multimedia to your education entries:

  1. Within the Education section of your profile, select the appropriate icon next to Add Media: Document, Photo, Link, Video, Presentation.
    You can upload documents in the following formats: .pdf, .doc, .docx, .rtf, or odt.
    You can upload photos in the following formats: .png, .gif, .jpg, or .jpeg.
    You can upload presentations in the following formats: .pdf, .ppt, .pps, .pptx, .ppsx, .pot, .potx, or .odp.
  2. Click Upload a File to display the media on your profile or type in a website URL to link to content that exists on another site and then click Continue.
    If you chose to upload a file, select the file from your desktop. A picture of your content displays. LinkedIn automatically populates the Title and Description fields.
  3. If the prepopulated Title and Descriptions fields aren’t correct, click and edit them to your liking.
  4. Click Save.
