LinkedIn now has a career break section. The section lets job applicants not just write about, but visually explain employment breaks, with videos and images. Reasons can range from caregiving, travel, to health and wellbeing. This certainly adds a more human touch to LinkedIn profiles.
The feature also shows that to move us forward, it doesn’t always take high-end tech solutions. Rather, we can just make better use of the tools we already have.
