Linkedin Question?

Postby thexfactor » Mon Jan 31, 2011 12:38 pm

Hey I was wondering what you guys put on your linkedin profile. I checked out my friend's profile and he put in his class rank, grades and other honors.
Do you think that is providing too much information?

I don't put grades, even though mine are great, just because I feel like it would be rubbing it in. Likewise, I do not put my class rank or Dean's List.

I just have my Undergrad school, with latin honors, listed + law school (with a writing award I got).
I have more descriptions on my work experience (what I did).

I think putting honors is fine, but GPA/rank is kind of douchey.
