LinkedIn is the social network for professionals, which allows you to connect with colleagues and potential employers and even apply for jobs within the site itself.
By creating some sort of resume that acts as your profile page, you are able to highlight your achievements, talents, education and work history to anyone who wants to see it.
You can also add interests to your LinkedIn profile and it might be worth doing.
Interest on LinkedIn consists of “news sources, influencers, businesses, schools and groups” that you follow on the site. This is useful because it lets other users know what you are curious about and can even help you make new connections with people who are following the same things as you.
If you want to know how to add interests to your LinkedIn profile, here’s how.
How to add interests on LinkedIn
1. Go to https://www.linkedin.com and log in using your username and password.
2. Using the search bar at the top of the screen, locate a person, company or topic that interests you and click to be taken to their profile page.
3. On the person or company profile page, click the Follow button. The company, person or topic will now be listed in the Interests section.
How to view and add the interests of your LinkedIn connections
You can also see the interests of your connections or any profile on LinkedIn.
To do this, go to the profile page of the person whose interests you want to view. Scroll down to their Interests section to see the companies, topics and people they follow.
If applicable, click “See All” if there are too many to display on the main profile page.
Then, a window will appear where you can add interests by directly clicking the Follow button. If you are already following one of their interests, a check mark will appear next to the group or company name.
