Personally, I would post it to Slideshare (which is owned by LinkedIn anyway) and link to your Slideshare account from your LinkedIn account. This gives you two hooks in the water as people may find your presentation on Slideshare and from there find you on LinkedIn.

Subject: add presentation to LinkedIn profile - Summary vs. applicable job section?

Hello, WR-L-ers,

Iâm debating to which location of my LinkedIn profile it makes more sense to post the slides for an STC chapter presentation Iâm giving? The chapter doesnât have a specific location for all speakerâs slides, so my LinkedIn profile seems a good home for them.

* Posting it to the Summary makes it immediately findable when attendees (or others) go to my profile to get the slides. (Iâll be telling people at the presentation that thatâs where Iâm posting them to.)

* But posting it to the applicable job section (I have a section for STC, where I list other presentations Iâve given) makes more logical sense.

Iâm thinking of hedging my bets and posting the presentation to the Summary, and then after a few weeks moving it to my STC section, where I might post some of my older slide decks. That way the immediate need of people quickly finding the slides is met, but for the long term, the slide deck will be where it logically makes sense. After all, technical recruiters/managers arenât going to care about such pubs-specific things.

Thoughts? (And please, please, avoid turning this thread into an STC-bashing one. My question is about how to best use LinkedInâs âAdd Mediaâ feature, not about the merits of a specific professional society.)

Thanks,
-Monique
