You can update the following areas on your profile to show that you're self-employed, a consultant or an independent contractor:

When you add a position:

  1. Type "Self-Employed" in the Company Name field or add the name of the company at which you were a consultant.

    Important: After you type this, move your cursor outside of the Company Name field and click your mouse to prevent pulling in any dropdown options. If you didn't do this, click Cancel and try again.

  2. Type something like "Independent Professional" in the Title field.
  3. Click Save.
