How to upload your resume to a LinkedIn profile or add it to a job application. There are several ways to add your resume to LinkedIn. You can upload a resume directly to your LinkedIn profile or via Easy Apply on job applications.

Creating a custom resume for your LinkedIn profile is key to standing out in the job market. If the Featured section is disabled, you can still add your resume via the "Add Section" option.

LinkedIn can be a useful tool for getting your name out there and in front of the right hiring managers. It can also help when it comes to applying directly for jobs, especially the thousands featured on the site.

To take full advantage of these features, it's a good idea to upload a resume to your profile. Here's what you'll need to do to upload a resume to LinkedIn.

If you don't have a resume ready, you can use LinkedIn's download feature, which takes all the information you've included in your profile and converts it into a PDF resume. 

However, the downloaded resume is likely not as aesthetically pleasing as a resume you have created yourself and will likely be longer than you want. So, uploading a custom resume to your profile allows you to tailor your employment information to better suit the job you're applying for so you stand out the right way. The same is true when applying for a job.
