When searching for employees, employers usually look at social media profiles. LinkedIn is one of the most popular sites that employers check. We know it well at Vertabelo. That's why we’ve made it easier for our users to brag about what they've learned in our Academy. Here's a quick guide on how to do it, step by step.

We will go through an example using one of our basic courses—SQL Basic. By the way, it's a great course! I use customer databases every day, and SQL allows me to efficiently prepare reports and draw conclusions from the gathered information. I am excited about the knowledge I have gained and decided to proudly show it to the world.

1. Go to the "My courses" tab on the right side of the screen. It is located in the developing menu of your profile.

Choose the desired course and click the "Get certificate" button, circled in red below. Of course, to be able to get the certificate, you must first complete the course.
