What are LinkedIn Symbols?

The letters, numbers, and punctuation you use every day are part of the Unicode character set, a standard used to properly render characters across most browsers, websites, and applications. There are many characters included that you don?t see everyday. The letter R is part of the set alongside ? or ?. Emoji have also been integrated into the Unicode character set ?. LinkedIn?s text editor is basic, but it knows how to render these symbols if you know how to type them in.

The easiest way to insert special characters into your profile is to copy and paste from another webpage. You can search for the symbol you want on the Unicode Character Table or seek out an article that has a curated list of symbols. When you find the symbol you want, highlight it, copy it, and paste it into your LinkedIn profile editor.

You can also add symbols by using the emoji keyboard on Mac or PC.
