How to Add your Excel IQ Certificate to your LinkedIn profile
Congratulations on receiving your Excel with Business Microsoft Excel IQ certificate. You can now add this to your LinkedIn profile!
The Excel IQ™ is modelled on traditional and well-established means of IQ scoring (e.g. a score of 100 is ‘average’) and is an accurate and efficient method of assessing a user’s ability. It enables third parties (recruiters, managers, training teams) to objectively compare their staff or recruits, whilst giving Excel IQ-holders (students, employees) a meaningful, certified and recognised verification of their Excel skills.
By adding your certificate to your LinkedIn profile you are showcasing key skills, providing evidence of your Excel proficiency, as well as increasing the overall quality of your LinkedIn page – very relevant when recruiters search for candidates with certain skills and qualifications. The course provides you with a CPD (Continuing Professional Development) recognised certificate, which makes it even more valuable for viewers to see on your LinkedIn profile.
To upload your certificate, first log onto your LinkedIn profile here, and then click on ‘Edit Profile’, as displayed below:
If you haven’t already added a certificate to your LinkedIn profile, the option to do so should be available on the right hand side of your page:
