Adding Bullet Points to LinkedIn Profile Text (Via @LissaDuty)

Here’s a great Twitter tip from Lissa Duty.

 

If you’re having trouble reading this embedded tweet, Lissa’s tip reads:

#LinkedIn Secret: Can’t get a bullet into your LinkedIn profile? Create one in Word, then Copy and Paste.

I tried this tip out on my own user profile to change my LI Summary and Hertvik Business Services experience entries.

I can verify that this technique works with the following caveats:

  • When I pasted the text into my LinkedIn Summary, it inserted several characters of blank space (a tab, maybe?) between the bullet point itself and the start of my text. I had to go in to each bullet point and remove the blank space
  • It removed any blank lines (line feeds) that I had previously put in between bullet points. If I want to add line feeds between my bullet points, I have to put them in myself.

So from my experience, this tip works. To see my results, go to my LinkedIn profile at http://www.linkedin.com/in/joehertvik.
