Did You Know There's A Fresh Method To Move LinkedIn Sections Within Sections?

As you know we conduct LinkedIn workshops and personal training on a regular basis. During our sessions we are asked many questions related to an individual's profile and how much flexibility exists to manage it.

Sometimes an individual has two businesses listed as "Current". In some instances the two positions may exist within the same organization. Recently we were asked "Can I elect to have a particular position presented in the first position even if they are both current"? Absolutely you can! Here's how.

Previously you needed to place your cursor to the left of the multiple positions within the same organization. As shown below you would see two vertical bars that would require you to grab and pull them to reorder your positions. Please note we have placed purple vertical rectangles where the gray box appeared previously.

In a recent update, LinkedIn changed the method to do this. It now more closely mirrors what you would do if you were reordering complete sections by grabbing the arrow on the top of the right of the section, Now you are provided with an up/down arrow within the section. 

The example shown below highlights the "secondary" up/down arrow. It's hidden until you scroll over the section. By grabbing the up/down arrow shown you can now reorder the multiple positions you hold within the organization. 

It's pretty simple once you know where to find the tool and now you do! Happy to help with little LinkedIn tips like this to make your profile your own.

Until "What's Next" next time...
