Adding your resume to LinkedIn increase the touchpoints for the recruiter viewing your profile. They could easily click on it and get a deeper understanding of all your experiences. Here is a step-by-step guide to adding your resume to LinkedIn.
Step 1: Head over to Linkedin
Enter the URL for Linkedin and navigate to the website. Here there are multiple ways for you to get to your profile. The easiest way would be to click on your profile picture on the left-hand side.
Step 2: Navigate to your profile by clicking on the profile picture
Once you’re in your profile navigate down to the featured section. In my case I already have some posts on the featured section, you can also add other posts but now we will upload a resume to this section. The featured is quite important because when a recruiter visits your profile this comes on top and they can interact with the post and links that you have shared here.
Step 3: Tap on the “+” icon on the Featured section
When you tap on the plus button, you’ll notice that there are a lot of different kinds of featured items that you can add. You can add posts, articles, links, and media. In this case, we will add media.
Step 4: Select your resume and upload it
Step 5: View your resume in the featured section
There you have it, your beautiful resume is now part of the featured section on your LinkedIn. This helps recruiters notice some important aspects of your profile that you have not highlighted on LinkedIn. Not only that they will be able to easily download this and use it to add to their system.
