The best way to find out is just to log into LinkedIn and get in the edit mode and first look over your profile. Look around for anything that says ‘new’.  Below you can see something new added. This section will highlight courses, earned certifications, volunteer work,  language proficiencies, or received awards. Now there’s a place to list them so they’ll show in your profile.
