LinkedIn Now Offers Multimedia Portfolios
The resume site turns into an interactive professional lookbook.
LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional online network with over 2million users in 200 countries worldwide has had a makeover. The site now allows users to upload videos, images and presentations amongst other rich media to showcase their work and skills. The new ‘LinkedIn Professional Portfolio’ helps to turn the previously text-only resume site into a portfolio platform with interactive features such as a like button and comment boxes. Users can upload visual content to the ‘Summary,’ ‘Experience’ and ‘Education’ sections to sit alongside fewer more concise words.
