Editing or sorting professional experience entries

Edit entries or add new ones
Simply go to the entry in the “professional experience” section of your profile you’d like to edit and click on the pencil symbol. Now you can make any changes you’d like to make and click on save. If you’d like to add a new entry, just click on “Add” next to the “professional experience” header.

Sort entries
Entries are sorted automatically based on whether or not you entered time periods for your entries. If you did, then the latest entries will appear at the top and the oldest entries at the bottom. If not, the entries will be sorted in the order in which you entered them.
If you’d like your entries to appear in a certain order, the way to do it is to not use any dates and add the entries in the order in which you want them to appear, i.e. the entry you want to appear last should be entered first, and vice versa.

Exception: The position you selected as your current position which appears next to your name will always appear at the top.

Delete entries
Simply go to the entry in the “professional experience” section of your profile you’d like to edit and click on the pencil symbol. Now you can click on the “Delete” button at the bottom of the pop-up box.

Tip: We recommend you add as much professional experience as possible and list your duties for each position. This helps to improve the quality of your profile as well as your chances of being found by current and former work colleagues.
