What Hillary Clinton left off her LinkedIn profile

CONCORD, NH - APRIL 21:  Democratic presidential hopeful and former U.S. Sectetary of State Hillary Clinton takes a tour of an engineering lab before a roundtable conversation with students and faculty of New Hampshire Technical Institute, Concord Community College, on April 21, 2015 in Concord, New Hampshire.

On Thursday, Hillary Clinton, like many American job seekers, created a profile on LinkedIn, a social networking site in which users’ pages double as a makeshift résumé.
Like most “everyday Americans” looking for work, Clinton presented the best possible version of herself. For instance, the former first lady included her 2016 presidential bid on her profile but opted not to include her failed candidacy in 2008.

But the omissions don’t end there. A past résumé of Clinton’s, buried on the Rockefeller Archive Center’s website and mostly forgotten to history, reveals how the Hillary Clinton of the 1980s sought to promote herself — long before she became one of the most famous women in the world. Whether due to space constraints or in light of all she’s done since then, Clinton’s LinkedIn profile leaves out much of this early Hillary.
Clinton’s 1980s résumé and the LinkedIn profile list her first job as a staff attorney for the Children’s Defense Fund in Massachusetts, but nowhere on LinkedIn does she mention her summer in Texas in 1972 campaigning for liberal icon George McGovern. After that experience, from January to August 1974, Clinton famously served on the Impeachment Inquiry Staff for the House Judiciary Committee investigating President Richard Nixon, another position not mentioned on LinkedIn.

Between Clinton’s job at the Children’s Defense Fund and her start at the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, Clinton taught criminal law at the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville, in addition to directing the school’s legal aid clinic and two prison projects. As part of her work for the Cummins Prison Project, Clinton helped prepare an amicus brief that helped secure clemency for a mentally handicapped man on Arkansas’ death row.
While at the University of Arkansas, Clinton also published multiple articles not listed under “publications” on LinkedIn. Her first prominent publication came in the December 1973 issue of the Harvard Educational Review, an article titled “Children Under the Law,” which drew criticism from numerous prominent Republicans during Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign.
