How to post an article on your LinkedIn profile


LinkedIn (Android | iOS | Web) is an excellent platform for those who want to create a professional network and look for a job. Among other resources, the social network allows its users to write and publish articles.

Unlike a standard publication, an article is a more complex text and serves to expand discussions on certain topics on the platform. In addition, it will become part of your professional profile and can be found by users inside and outside the social network.

If you’d like to contribute to the community by writing an article, check out the step-by-step post below on LinkedIn. It is important to note that this function is not available for the app on Android and iOS devices, it can be accessed only in the web version.
