You can display samples of your work on your profile. Items can be added, edited, moved or removed from your Edit Profile page.

To add media samples to the Summary, Education, and Experience sections on your profile:
  1. Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your homepage and select Edit Profile.
  2. Move your cursor over the section you want to add a sample to and click the Add Media icon.
  3. Select Upload a file if you'd like to display the media sample on your profile OR type in a website to link to content that exists on another site.
    • If you chose to upload a file, select the file from your desktop. A picture of your content will display with pre-filled Title and Description fields.
  4. Click Save. An update may appear on the homepages of your network, letting others know you added the media file or link. Learn how to control these activity updates.

Note: If you don't see the Add Media icon, you can add samples by clicking the file type next to Add Media at the bottom of each profile section.

To edit the Title and Description fields of your media sample:
  1. Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your homepage and select Edit Profile.
  2. Scroll down to the media sample you'd like to edit and click the Edit icon in its lower right corner.
  3. Click inside the Title and Description fields to edit the text.
  4. Click Save.

Note: The image and its link can't be edited. If you choose to link to content from an unsupported provider, you won't be able to add a description. The media may also not display when clicked on. A Show Original button will display instead, leading the viewer to the content on the original website.

To move media samples from one section to another:
  1. Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your homepage and select Edit Profile.
  2. Scroll down to the sample you'd like to move and click the Edit icon in the top right.
  3. Click the dropdown menu under Move this media to and select which section of your profile you'd like to move it to.
  4. Click Save.
To remove the media sample from your profile:
  1. Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your homepage and select Edit Profile.
  2. Scroll down to the sample you'd like to remove and click the Edit icon in the top right.
  3. Click Remove this Media and then click Yes, remove it.

To rearrange items within the same section of your profile, click Edit on your profile and drag the items to rearrange them in the order you want.
