I was waiting for LinkedIn to become more student friendly so more students would be interested in joining! You can add awards, certifications, student organizations and more! I'm adding these new sections right now.
To add the new sections to your profile:
1. Go to your LinkedIn page 2. Click "Edit Profile" 3. Below your main information, in a blue box on your profile, there will be the words "Add sections to reflect achievements and experiences on your profile." Click that! 4. Add new sections!
