lynda.com Certifications—Now Available On Your LinkedIn Profile

November 14, 2013

Lynda.com certificates now appear on your LinkedIn profile to help you get a job.

This week we’re pleased to announce a new way to integrate your lynda.com course completion certificates with your LinkedIn profile—and share with any prospective recruiters and hiring managers the skills and knowledge you’ve acquired here at lynda.com.

If you’re a member of both lynda.com and LinkedIn, when you complete a course on lynda.com, you’ll receive an email with a link that lets you quickly and easily post your new certificate of completion to your LinkedIn profile—adding depth and breadth to your online resume. It’s now easier than ever to share your accomplishments in the job market, and showcase your skills and knowledge.

For best results, ensure the email address you’ve signed up with at lynda.com is also added to your LinkedIn profile, so that your two accounts sync. To do this, simply click your profile image in the top right of any LinkedIn page, and select the Privacy & Settingsoption. From there, you’ll have the option to add email addresses to your profile; if your lynda.com account email address isn’t included there, click the Change/Add link next to your Primary Email address and update it.

For more information, you can also read the LinkedIn blog post describing the program in more detail. We hope you enjoy this new way to share your accomplishments!
