To get a short URL for your LinkedIn profile, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your LinkedIn account.
  2. Go to your profile by clicking on your profile picture in the top right corner of the homepage.
  3. Under your profile picture, you will see the current URL of your LinkedIn profile. It will look something like this: www.linkedin.com/in/yourname-123456789/.
  4. Click on the pencil/edit icon next to your current URL.
  5. A pop-up window will appear with the option to "Edit public profile & URL" on the right-hand side. Click on it.
  6. On the right-hand side, you will see an "Edit your custom URL" section. Under the current URL, there will be a box where you can enter your preferred short URL.
  7. Enter the desired short URL in the box, keeping in mind that it must be unique and can only contain alphanumeric characters (letters and numbers) or a hyphen (-).
  8. Once you enter the desired URL, click on "Save." LinkedIn will check if the URL is available and let you know if it's accepted.
  9. If the URL is accepted, your LinkedIn profile URL will be updated to the new short URL you entered. It will look something like this: www.linkedin.com/in/yourname/.


Note: Keep in mind that LinkedIn only allows you to change your URL a limited number of times, so choose your short URL wisely.
