Don’t Upload Your Resume to LinkedIn

Kent Nolen

LinkedIn has a great upload feature and you should absolutely use for rich media (presentations, thought pieces, etc.). Just don't use it to upload your resume.

There are two key reasons why I don’t recommend including your resume on your LinkedIn account:

• The most effective resume is one that is targeted toward a specific position. Of course, if a potential employer is grabbing your resume off of LinkedIn, you do not have the ability to target the resume.

• If an interested party can grab your resume from your LinkedIn account, there is one less reason to get in touch with you, which eliminates a crucial opportunity for you to develop a relationship early on. It is much more effective to be able to deliver your (targeted) resume as a second step in the process.
