But first, before you do anything, go to your LinkedIn settings, and switch the privacy controls to OFF for activity broadcasts.  The first time I did this, I overlooked that and in the following days, kept getting congratulations from kindly minded people about my  ‘new’ job. (Every job you edit shows up in your feed as a new role!).

To add company logos to your LinkedIn profile, just follow these simple steps.

Step 1: Scroll down to your employment history, and click the edit button on the right.

Step 2: When you type in the name of the company, it should appear (if there is a LinkedIn Company Page)

These are all businesses that have registered LinkedIn pages. If your company is there, you can select it.

If the company you are looking for doesn’t appear on the dropdown list, then it needs a company page.  If it’s your company, you can create one in a couple of seconds. That is the only way (right now) that LinkedIn allows you to display company logos on your profile. If you’re working for a company however, you need to request from them to add a logo.

Thoughts? It makes sense and means there aren’t going to be any incorrect logos floating around. It does mean though that if you work for a company that closed down before making a profile, you simply cannot add a nice shiny logo.  But hey, that’s a #firstworldproblem.

  1. Thank you for this, you have been most helpful. May I say what a lovely website you have. It is very bright, clean and, well, a nice place to be.
    Have a great weekend, if you get one.

  2. Some companies have a logo on their homepage. Somehow the logo doesn’t show up as or after you type the company name. An example is Brunei Shell Petroleum Sendirian Berhad whose logo appears on its homepage: https://www.bsp.com.bn/. What to do in this case?
