How To Add Symbols and Bullets to LinkedIn

Have you ever seen someone’s LinkedIn account and wondered how they added symbols and bullets to really make their LinkedIn profiles pop?

Unfortunately there is no ‘bullet button’ in LinkedIn, just like there isn’t an obvious way to italicize, underline, or bold words. Your profile is in all essence, an unformatted document. But, there are ways to add some fun icons and bullets to really make your profile stand out.

In order to add a symbol or bullet, simply highlight, copy (CTRL+C or Apple +C), and paste (CTRL+V or Apple+V) into your profile. Of course, you can also right click and select ‘copy’ or ‘paste.’

If you are a little more creative you may notice that there are many options also available in Word. All you need to do is look at Wingdings or Webdings and you can add a great deal more to your profile. Additionally, you can edit your profile with your phone and use the emoji’s available.

Please note: not all of the symbols out of Word work on LinkedIn.

Have fun customizing your LinkedIn profile but remember, don’t get too carried away!
