Before just assuming the new update is working perfectly on your profile, however, you might need to take a quick look and do some profile maintenance.
If positions have been grouped together incorrectly, it will be because the company name entered for the positions is the same. To change this, just update the company name to make them different. You can do this by deleting the existing company name entry and re-writing it. As you re-write it LinkedIn will provide you with different options to pick from. If the company doesn’t exist and isn’t’ in the list, you can just write the company name manually.
Positions haven’t been grouped
If this is the case then you’ll need to update the company name for all entries so they match. LinkedIn will then recognise this as one company and therefore one entry.
For Thought-Leaders and Entrepreneurs
As a thought-leader, expert entrepreneur or author we know our LinkedIn profile will read very differently from that of a job hunter or contractor. As such we may have created three or more opens positions for us within our one company. We may have an entry for Speaker and/or Author, or a prior entry about the company before you evolved to your current form.
You may wish to keep them grouped together, however, if you want attention for the specific activity you do, ungrouping them could be important to you. Of course, doing this will mean they can’t all be attached to the same company. YOu’ll have to consider having separate company pages (which may be appropriate) or foregoing the company logo with the position entry.
For one of my clients, the new update required me to make substantial changes.
Author of four books, Daniel Priestley had an entry on his profile for each, plus two entries for his company Dent; one for the companies everyday activities and his role as a co-founder, and one for his consultancy work. The new update created a huge mess that needed attention.
I fixed it by adding his two roles into one entry by matching the company name, and by adding his books into one company with four positions. In this screenshot, you can see three of them.
