I was asked how to remove a position from a LinkedIn profile and thought it would be worth sharing with everyone here.

It’s like several other LinkedIn actions – obscure until someone shows you, and then it’s obvious…

One step forward, and two steps back

That’s actually the trick.

All of it.

You have to “Edit” the position or degree to remove it.

I know – you’re thinking that seems a bit backwards, but still, that’s what has to be done…

Find the “Remove this” button

There at the bottom of the edit screen, right below the “Save Changes” button you’ll find some small text:

And that’s all you have to do to get rid of a school / degree. Removing a job is exactly the same – except “school” becomes “position”.

Let me know what else is troubling you!

I’m serious – if there’s some other aspect that’s bothering you, feel free to let me know. Drop an email or leave a comment here.

But in the mean time – to your continued success,
