LinkedIn profiles don't have a suffix field. As a workaround, you can show your credentials by editing your profile and adding it to the Last Name field (for example, Last Name= Smith Ph.D.).

You can also display this information on your profile by adding a Certifications section on your profile:

  1. Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your homepage and select Edit Profile.
  2. Click Certifications on the right side of your profile.
  3. Complete the prompted fields.
  4. Click Done editing in the top section of your profile.

To add additional Certifications:

  1. Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your homepage and select Edit Profile.
  2. Scroll down to the Certifications section on your profile and click +Add.
  3. Complete the prompted fields and click Save.
