Your work experience
This may seems like a daunting task, particularly if you’re had quite a rich employment history. The only comfort I can give you is that if you do this well, once, you won’t have to do it again.
Here you should include all the positions you have held (don’t bother with that part time position you once had at McDonald’s and Subway though) – current positions as well as those you’ve held in the past. Feel free to also include any voluntary positions you have held. It of course has to be within LinkedIn’s limit of 100 Titles, 100 Companies and 2,000 Character Description.
You do not have to worry about placement and entering the information in chronological order because LinkedIn will automatically do that for you beginning with the most recent. However, if you have more than one position within the same time period, you will be given the option of moving them around later to determine in what order they should appear.
There are some key factors you need to include for each position. This would include;
- Name of the company
- What the company specialised in
- What role you played within the company
- How you helped the company
- How your experience with the company will help your LinkedIn reader
