LinkedIn is the world's most popular employment-oriented online service platform, mainly used for professional networking, and allows job seekers to post their CVs and employers to post jobs. With 722 million members, LinkedIn is deemed the most trusted social network in the U.S., with 310 million monthly active users. About 55 job applications are posted every single second. In addition, a study by We Are Social indicates that although there are only 3.2 million Thai users, they tend to be higher quality, more white-collar workers than other platforms.
Last time we talked about everything it has to offer, it is time to start setting up your profile. Your profile page is your first impression on recruiters, so it's crucial to get it right. Here is our LinkedIn Size Guide to help you get it right across all services.
Setting up your LinkedIn Profile
- Register an account
Before you can have an account, you must first sign up. Fill out information such as education, work history, abilities, and anything that will help you get the job.
- Upload your photo
LinkedIn is a professional network, so upload professional photos to help make your profile more credible.
- Write descriptions
Write a description to make it easier to understand, from education, work, abilities, everything.
- Change your profile's URL
Changing the URL also makes it easier for people to remember. You can do it by going to Settings and Privacy > Visibility > Edit Your Public Profile > Edit Your Custom URL. That's it. You'll be able to edit your URLs to make them easier to remember.
- Put yourself in different networks
After we've finished setting up all sections, don't forget to put yourself in the presence of people to comment to attract more people to be interested in your profile.
LinkedIn image size for personal and company profiles
Image size for personal profiles
Profile picture size is used at a 1:1 aspect ratio. A minimum resolution of 400 x 400 pixels is recommended for sharper images. Don't forget to leave spaces on the sides because LinkedIn crops it in circles, and some details outside the circle might be lost.
LinkedIn supports image sizes up to 7680 x 4320 pixels and up to 8MB. You can upload larger images for future use.
The profile cover photo is used at a 4:1 aspect ratio. It is recommended at 1584 x 396 pixels, but crops will vary from device to device. Make sure your photos display well on each device and that the file size is no more than 8MB.
Image size for company pages
In addition to personal profiles, LinkedIn also hosts company page profiles for organizations to create their own company profiles to communicate with others and post job hirings. You can also do marketing to attract B2B customers to buy or use your services. To make people turn their attention to our company, you should make the profile image attractive and make sure that the photos are of the correct size.
The company logo is recommended to be 300 x 300 pixels, and it can be used as a square because it doesn't have a circular border like personal ones.
The company cover photo's recommended size is 1128 x 191 pixels, which is longer than a personal profile.
The Life Tab is a section where companies can tell a story about life at the office, corporate culture, or reviews from employees in the organization.
The main image's recommended size 1128 x 376 pixels. It will be the top image of the Life page and will be visible only when you click on the Life tab.
The recommended size for a custom module image is 502 x 282 pixels. The custom module is where you can insert video clips, images, or text posts.
The company photo's recommended size is 900 x 600 pixels, but it can be uploaded as small as 264 x 176 pixels.
Blog post link image sizes
LinkedIn Special Posts are link-attached posts that allow us to choose which images to display on our links. The application recommends that the image's aspect ratio be 1.91:1 at 1200 x 627 pixels, and it is recommended that the width be at least 200 pixels.
