Customize your LinkedIn URL

Enhance your LinkedIn address.  It helps “brand” you and it’s easy to do!

Once you customize your URL, you can put your new, branded URL on your resume, business cards, etc.

Your current public LinkedIn URL is probably a string of letters and/or #s that makes your address look unappealing and unmemorable.

Example:  http://www.linkedin.com/pub/joan-smith/6a/217/b542  

  • So the next time you’re in the site editing your profile, click on the “edit” link that’s right next to your Public Profile url/address. (Your public address is located in the Box with all your summary info).
  • After you click “edit,” you’ll be able to write what you want. So for example if …

Your current URL 
is http://www.linkedin.com/pub/joan-smith/6a/217/b542

Customize your URL with your name.

  • Example: joansmith (Does not take caps or spaces.)
  • Save it.
  • You’re profile will now appear as www.linkedin.com/in/joansmith — a much cleaner look for the resume, your business card, etc!

RESULT:  www.linkedin.com/in/joansmith
