A picture truly is worth a 1,000 words, especially when it comes to showcasing your work. LinkedIn lets you add photos, videos, and slideshow presentations to your profile summary.
So, instead of just talking about your work, you can show real examples; show yourself in action or share a presentation. It adds to your credibility and makes your profile more robust. These media types include external documents, photos, sites, pictures, videos, and presentations.
Think of media on your profile as a means of telling your story more effectively and from different perspectives. It lets you explain yourself and your accomplishments in a way that can be much more effective than just words. You don’t have to describe what you accomplished: you can show it or say it.
