Anyone can embed either a pop-up or a small in-line LinkedIn profile on any web page.
The details are quite straightforward.
I've embedded my (somewhat out-of-date!) profile to the right.
One has to to know the LinkedIn "alias" of the person in order to show the profile.
Unfortunately, it is not as simple as, say, knowing the person's email address;
each user has to set up their own public alias from within LinkedIn, and then you
have to know that.
In the context of integrating with Career Transitions...
since LinkedIn typically uses an email address as the login userid,
it might be possible to offer CT users the option to connect to (or create)
their LinkedIn profile, and then (in CT) ask them for their alias.
- Make it easy to get directly to one's LinkedIn profile from CT.
- Include one's LinkedIn profile in the CT create-a-resume tool.
