Sharing your promotion on social media is a great way to celebrate your success with your friends and colleagues.
However, if you want to share the good news about your promotion, the best place to do it is with your professional network on LinkedIn.
Adding your promotion on LinkedIn not only adds more up-to-date information to your LinkedIn profile, but it can bring the attention of potential recruiters to your profile.
Here is how to add your recent promotion to your LinkedIn profile and notify your connections about it.
You’ll notice that your new job position will be immediately added to your LinkedIn resume. You can also add your promotion on LinkedIn via the mobile app; the steps are the same both for the browser and app.
Explore also how to remove 'Open to Work' from your LinkedIn profile.
You can also add your promotion to LinkedIn without adding a new position. You can only edit the job title of your latest position on your profile. To do this:
Your new job title will be updated and displayed instead of your old one. The process of updating your job position is the same no matter if you’re using LinkedIn in the web browser or the mobile app.
If you are adding your promotion to LinkedIn, you would, of course, like to notify your LinkedIn connections about the change in your career. After all, LinkedIn is all about networking.
There are several ways you can notify your LinkedIn network about your new promotion.
If you’d like to notify your connections about your promotion, there’s a notification you can enable when you are adding your new position to your LinkedIn profile.
In the Add or Edit experience windows we covered above, there’s a section above the job position details - the Notify network section.
Toggle the switch next to it to enable notifications. When you are done editing your new job post, click on ‘Save’, and your network on LinkedIn will receive a notification about your promotion.
Another way you can notify your connection about your new position is by adding a posting to the Feature section on your profile.
There are several types of ways you can do this.
All of these types of announcements can be afterwards added as links to your Featured section to be more visible on your profile.If you wish for a particular person not to be able to see your profile on LinkedIn, you can block them or make yourself anonymous if you don’t wish them to see that you visited their profile.
