Too Long; Didn't Read

LinkedIn recently introduced a new feature that indicates if users got their jobs via LinkedIn. The feature displays a small LinkedIn badge beside the text “helped me get the job” under the job position. The new feature is to reinstate its mission of connecting professionals to job opportunities and offering a health space for these professionals to connect. It only works for new role entries even if you’ve been at the job for several years and it’s only active for the job section at the moment.

LinkedIn, the world’s best professional networking platform, recently introduced a new feature that indicates if users got their jobs via LinkedIn. The new feature displays a small LinkedIn badge beside the text “helped me get the job” under the job position.


I stumbled on this new feature whilst typing a congratulations message to a connection who recently joined Schoolable as a Communications Manager. I reached out to ask how she was able to add the badge, and she told me the badge appeared after she added the position.


I feel this new feature by LinkedIn is to reinstate its mission of connecting professionals to job opportunities and offering a health space for these professionals to connect. I wanted to show the badge on my profile so bad cause I got my current job via LinkedIn, so I continued my research on finding the how-tos.


I looked up Reddit & did a few keyword searches on other forums (Twitter & Quora) but couldn’t find clear instructions on displaying this badge, not even on the LinkedIn website.


So I tried troubleshooting, and it worked. Read along if you’d like to display the “LinkedIn helped me get this job” badge on your profile.


Step 1: Log on to the LinkedIn website and type in your email address and password to login to your profile.


Step 2: Click on edit to add a new job position and check the box below to display the badge.

Step 3: Enter other important information about the role such as your achievement and click on save.


Note, that it only works for new role entries even if you’ve been at the job for several years and it’s only active for the job section at the moment. If you like this post, kindly comment below and share it with the world.
