Specialist Challenge - LinkedIn?

The specialist challenge is well underway, with so many of us participating. Is there a LinkedIn badge or call-out besides the individual certifications we can use to show we have all five certifications? I'm proud of my team and I want them (and I) to be able to show their hard work.

 

cheers,

Julia

Yeah, no badge so far, I've searched for this last year, and nope... I ended up using the standard Certifications section, but its getting crowded, with Doubleclick, and other random certifications lol. It would be cool to have something that stands out of that section.

Last year they called it the '5pecialist', so we went and asked everyone to add it to their Linkedin profile, and we got close to 90 people with this mark.

This would be cool to have! Hopefully they do it this year.

Glad to hear that everyone is enjoying the campaign and wanting to display it on their LinkedIn. This is something we're exploring now for the future. The Challenge is still only available in North America and the United Kingdom/Ireland, but we should hopefully have more ways to showcase your Specialist success soon.

5pecialist was confusing to those outside the partners circle. I had quite a few people tell me about the "typo" on my certifications.

exactly the reason I asked. LinkedIn badges are good, but at a certain point, are you just padding? One that encompasses all certifications would help.

Doubleclick told me they didn't have a certification

DoubleClick has 7 I think. I have two of them. https://doubleclick-elearning.appspot.com/
