LinkedIn meet the resume!
LinkedIn has a new resume feature, they call: LinkedIn meet the resume. You can instantly upload your LinkedIn profile to create a resume. It has some interesting features, including giving you the ability to share your resume on social media, create a pdf and email it to friends. You can also manage your privacy settings. That’s a big phew if you want to use this, but also want to keep your job search private.
Does the resume builder work?
Big points for trying at the LinkedIn Labs, but as you can see by the chunk from my resume, I’ve copied and pasted below, the result is a little awkward. Here’s a better view of the resume I created with my profile.
I get the convenience, but unless I haven’t fiddled enough, I can’t adjust the spacing in my summary section. So my resume just looks a bit messy.
I’d also like the option to add bolding and bullet points, so I can emphasise certain points.
I’ll keep you posted on any updates. (Or even when my fiddling skills with this feature improve)
