Upload Resume to LinkedIn Profile

To upload your resume directly to your LinkedIn profile, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your LinkedIn account.
  2. Click on your profile picture to go to your profile.
  3. Click on the 'Add profile section' button.
  4. Select 'Media' at the bottom of the 'Featured' section.
  5. In the pop-up window, choose your resume file and click 'Upload'.
  6. Save your changes.

This method allows your resume to be visible and downloadable from your profile, but it cannot be used directly for job applications on LinkedIn.

Upload Resume for Job Applications

LinkedIn allows you to store resumes for future job applications:

  1. Click 'Me' on your homepage, then select 'Settings & Privacy'.
  2. Go to 'Job seeking preferences' and choose 'Job application settings'.
  3. Click 'Upload' under 'Resume' in the 'Job Application Settings' page.

This method stores your resume on LinkedIn, making it easily accessible for future applications without making it public.

Upload Resume During Job Application

For applying to jobs directly on LinkedIn:

  1. Search for a job and click on the job title to view details.
  2. Click the 'Easy Apply' button.
  3. Complete the required fields and select 'Upload resume' under 'Resume (optional)'.
  4. Submit your application.

Note: If you aren’t logged in, uploading a resume is mandatory. LinkedIn recommends a file size less than 2MB in Microsoft Word or PDF format.

Upload Resume to LinkedIn for a Post

To share your resume with your network through a post:

  1. Click 'Start a post' at the top of your Feed.
  2. Select the document icon and choose your resume file.
  3. Add a title to your document and click 'Done'.
