LinkedIn is the Filofax for all your professional achievements. Your job roles and your hard-earned skills are at the heart of your LinkedIn profile. So, how can you ensure that they are up to date and in the right order? With a quick edit, of course.

How to Sort Your Jobs in the Right Order on LinkedIn

LinkedIn Reorder Current Roles

It’s quite possible that you have a day job and another where you moonlight in a different role. Depending on the relevance and the kind of future jobs you are looking for, LinkedIn allows you to set one job as your primary one. You can move the other below it even if it’s a current job.

  1. Click your profile picture on the right to open your profile page.
  2. Scroll down to the Experiences section. Choose the current job which you want to keep as a  secondary role. For instance, for me, my editorial job is more important than my own dormant blog.
  3. Click and hold the mouse over the Reorder icon on the section you want to move. Drag the section up or down your profile to its new location.
  4. Release your mouse to drop the section into that place.

How to Sort Your Skills in the Right Order on LinkedIn

Reorder your skills and endorsements.

The LinkedIn Search algorithm aligns your job title with the skills you have advertised on your profile. Recruiters use skills as keywords to search for the right candidate. So, pay careful attention to the skills and the order of their priority on your profile. Keep the most relevant skill at the top and then graduate downwards.
