Upload a resume to your LinkedIn profile


Working regularly with job seekers, I see a lot of resumes; so much time, thought and hard work that has been lovingly poured into one document that is meant to sum up your entire career. No big deal, right?

I recently realized that it’s been a long time since I’ve seen a resume on someone’s profile. I did some research and found my answer in LinkedIn Help Center:

Being able to see someone’s resume on their LinkedIn profile has often been a very useful feature for me, and I’m sure, for many other recruiters as well. We could take a look, download, screenshot, or just pull up to take a deep dive into someone’s background and share it with a hiring manager. So I was a bit disappointed to learn that they had removed this feature. But then I realized it wasn’t really “gone”. It’s not that obvious!

Let’s take a look:

We are always able to include links and “media” on our profiles. This can include videos about our company, one-pagers, a recent interview we did… endless possibilities. All you have to do is include a link or upload a file from your computer.

You can start by going to your profile and clicking on the pencil icon at the top to edit your profile.

A dialog box will open, including edit fields for the entire top part of your profile. When you scroll to the bottom of this box, you will see a “Media” section. In this particular case, you will have to click on “Download” in order to download your CV:

A new dialog will appear which will show you a thumbnail image of the file you downloaded.

From here you can edit the Title and Description fields. These two fields are important because they are what anyone viewing your profile will see when they find your resume thumbnail view:

Don’t forget to click “Apply” when you’re done editing these fields.

LinkedIn will then take you back to the original dialog where you need to click “Save” to ensure your resume is posted to your profile. They’ll see the thumbnail directly below your profile summary, like this:

If you’re actively looking for a new position and have no worries about being bold and spreading this information, this is a great way to go the extra mile and make the process a little easier for you. recruiters, HR representatives and hiring. managers. It also allows you to proudly share the work you’ve done to perfect your resume!

Future and recent university graduates – this is a great detail to include in your LinkedIn profile as you prepare to enter the job market. Your potential employers will eat this, I promise.
