LinkedIn is letting users take their online resumes to a whole new level. The social network announced Wednesday that people now have more options to visually showcase their work experience and talent with videos, images, and photos.
For example, graphic designers can show images of their past projects, photographers can show examples of their snapshots, and advertisers can launch videos of previous campaigns. With this new feature, LinkedIn is aiming to let users turn their text-only resumes into interactive lookbooks.
To make changes to their profiles, users can click "edit" and then follow the prompts in each relevant section, such as "Summary," "Experience," and "Education." The social network is also boosting user interaction by setting up comment sections where people can like and discuss each other's work.
LinkedIn has been amping up its features over the last few months. Just in April, the site added mentions for English-speaking members to stimulate more conversation, launched a desktop and iPhone app to let users stay in touch with their most important contacts, and acquired the newsreader app Pulse to bring users more content.
