Hi, this is Sahar Andrade from Sahar Consulting, LLC. I'm a Social Media Strategist and a Certified Inbound Marketer. Today, we're talking about adding resumes on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a professional network that has a 150 million members, the 500 Fortune companies and all the decision makers. It is a great idea to add your resume on LinkedIn, either you are actively or passively looking for a job. Not only that, but it will also show your expertise even if you have your own business. Now, how to add your resume to LinkedIn? LinkedIn offers and application to upload your resume directly on your profile. Unfortunately, it has never really worked very well. So, it duplicates your entries or doesn't show your resume properly. So, what you can do is to use that is a free application that you can find under more on the top of the page in the drop down menu. What you can do is to click on; you would need to create a free personal profile, then you can upload your resume, either on Word or PDF format. After uploading your resume, you can name your resume as, "Resume for John Smith," for example, and this way, whoever visits your profile can actually have a look at your full resume. Not only that, but it will increase your SEO and sociability on the search engine. Best of luck, this is Sahar Andrade from Sahar Consulting, LLC.
