HOW TO: Re-arrange your current positions on your LinkedIn profile

On LinkedIn your work history is sorted by date, new to oldest position, and many people asked us if it’s possible to re-arrange your positions in a different order. This is highly desired for people who work on project assignments, like freelancers or entrepreneurs, who prefer to show their company first (see example below). Unfortunately this was not possible until recently. At LinkedIn they have made a few changes and now it’s really simple to make these changes:

  1. After login, click on Edit Profile via the top menu (Profile tab)
  2. Go to the Experience section
  3. Hoover with your mouse over the position you want to move, it will turn light-blue, and drag and drop it in the desired spot
