APA does not have a specific example for a Linked In profile. So I thought we could look at their example for Facebook and use the basic elements - author, date, "title", explanation, and retrieval date.
From p. 33 of APA Style Guide to Electronic Resources, 6th edition.

APA makes these points about the date of the post ...
- If the date is listed, then you do not need to use a date retrieved statement.
- If there is no date at all, use (n.d.). and a date retrieved statement.
- If you can through context estimate the date, then use circa, i.e. (ca. 2018) and a date retrieved statement.
Here, then, is a potential LinkedIn entry -
