I'm trying the work-around of simply entering a Title in the title dropdown and then using the "Descriptiong" field to add my list of honors & awards in a concise way. However it is not allowing me to do that, it's forcing me to enter all info. Any ideas? The normal way is way too long and takes up too much space.

    I'm glad someone started this thread. I'm also a newbie. Here's my issue: I have a fair no.of awards, and put in a couple of other things (like being a finalist for a VP job). But the way Linked-in does this, they take up a very large space, and I'm wondering if I will come off to people as too much...I have noticed on some other people's profiles they list their awards like this. There is a section titled "Additional Honors and Awards" and the space for listing these ends up being much smaller. I have seen two people's profiles like this. I'm wondering -- I know linked-in changes a lot, and was thinking maybe this was an option available before, but not now. Thanks. Colleen Roach

      I entered a "fixed space" "(Em Space) from Word as the title for my one and only award and inserted the others in the "comments" section as follows:

      2013 Award Z
      2012 Award Y
      2011 Award X

      Linkedin should provide for the option to do this in a better way. Listing all honors and awards separately the official Linkedin way makes it indeed too lenghty...

        However you use them, you might also
        reference them in the SUMMARY, if
        you haven't already, so people see
        them even if they don't scroll down.

          Being new to LinkedIn, I am still working on the summary..... great idea to make a reference to them in the SUMMARY. Thanks for the suggestion.
