I won’t lie to you and tell you that your Education section the most important section of your profile.
Even for students.
By itself, it’s not.
But as a whole, leaving this part out makes your entire profile seem incomplete.
Back in the days when you could judge your profiles completeness based on a percentage, this section was worth 20% of your overall score.
When you leave it out, you’re giving readers of your profile the impression that you don’t care enough about your education to bother including it.
In fact, you may be communicating that you don’t care enough about your LinkedIn profile in general. Which can be very frustrating to people who you want to learn more about you.
It takes less than 5 minutes to include where you went to college in your profile.
