Own it—Add your course completions and assessment certifications to your LinkedIn profile

- select the contributor at the end of the page -
Managing your career is a major priority. We get it. Taking time to master new skills is an investment in your personal and professional future. You should showcase this commitment to learning when and where you can. And, beginning today, Pluralsight Plus users can easily post course completion information and assessment credentials straight to their LinkedIn profiles.

The good news: it's really easy to do. The bad news: there is no bad news. In fact, this is quite possibly the best thing to happen to your LinkedIn profile since you finally uploaded a photo to your account.

How it works

After you complete a course, if it has an assessment-and you get a passing score of at least 70%-you'll see a button (see above) asking if you'd like to add the course to your LinkedIn profile. Click it, and you're on your way. LinkedIn will give you a few prompts. Once you skip those (including a step that asks you to include a license number), your completion certification will appear on your profile. Want to see the process in action?

The benefits

When you're on the hunt for the perfect job, professional references and work history are important. But, so is your online presence. Endorsements on LinkedIn are a good start, but highlighting real, solid and self-driven training makes an even a bigger point-that you're driven to succeed and have put in the effort to improve your skillset and grow in your career.
