TrueProfile.io Launches New Verification Feature for LinkedIn
<p class="has-medium-font-size">To become a verified professional on <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/company/trueprofile-io" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">LinkedIn</a>, all you need is your TrueProof®! The coveted stamp of approval which is found on many social media platforms, verifying the legitimacy of the account, has finally been launched. This verification feature for LinkedIn enables our network of verified and trusted global professionals to present their authenticated documents to their peers on LinkedIn. </p> <p>We got tired of waiting for LinkedIn to launch their verified profile feature which is found on many other platforms, including Twitter and Instagram…so we launched our own! <a href="https://www.trueprofile.io/member" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">TrueProfile.io members</a> can now showcase their verified credentials on LinkedIn, positioning themselves as professional influencers and further establishing their place within their industry. </p> <p>Simply link a professional statement on LinkedIn with the corresponding TrueProof to cement the trustworthiness of your profile. For example, if you have listed your degree on your LinkedIn profile, you can simply link your education TrueProof with this statement and enable peers, authorities and potential employers to view your verified certificate. </p> <h2>How does the verification feature for LinkedIn help my career? </h2> <p>Until now, there were no means of authenticating the information you presented on your LinkedIn profile. Ultimately, anyone can make a professional declaration on LinkedIn and recruiters, peers, employers, and authorities did not have the means to instantly verify if these claims were accurate. </p> <p>With the new TrueProfile.io seal of approval on LinkedIn, you can provide links to your verified credentials to set you apart from the crowd. Adding this layer of authenticity to your profile will help build instant trust with profile viewers. This benefits all of our members, whether they are actively searching for a new job, are keen to hear about new opportunities or simply want to position themselves as a verified professional within their industry. The TrueProfile.io verified seal of approval will bolster candidates&#8217; visibility within the market, regardless of the stage they are at in their career journey. </p> <h2>How can I share my TrueProof on LinkedIn? </h2> <p>We have a few resources to help you get set up with a verified statement on LinkedIn.
