But what if you don’t remember if you’ve already uploaded your resume? Or if you want to check that your resume on LinkedIn is still up-to-date? View your resume on LinkedIn by following this guide and stick around until the end for helpful upload tips.

How to View Your Resume on LinkedIn

To view your previously uploaded resume(s) on LinkedIn, you will need to go into your settings.

  1. Go to the LinkedIn website and make sure you’re logged in.
  2. Click the “Me” icon in the navigation menu.
  3. Select “Settings & Privacy.”
  4. Find “Job seeking preferences” under the “Data Privacy” section in the sidebar.
  5. Click the first option, “Job application settings.”
  6. You will see your uploaded resumes on the next page under “Manage your resumes.”

These are the resumes ready to be used with your job applications. To view the resume you want, click the three horizontal dots and select “Download.” You can also delete any outdated files.

How to View Your Resume for a Job Application on LinkedIn

You can also view the resume you’ve submitted for a job application on LinkedIn. This is a great way to check that you submitted the right file. Follow these steps:

  1. Go to the LinkedIn website and log in.
  2. Click the “Jobs” tab in the navigation menu.
  3. Find “My jobs” in the sidebar. You will be able to see any jobs you have applied for here.
  4. Select the application you want to view.
  5. You will find “Submitted resume” in the corner of the first card. Download your resume to view it.

How to View Your Resume Drafts on LinkedIn

LinkedIn also allows you to build your resume on-site. To access your previously created LinkedIn resumes or edit your drafts, do the following:

  1. Go to LinkedIn and be sure to log in.
  2. Press the “Me” icon in the navigation menu.
  3. Go to “View Profile.”
  4. Click “More” on your profile.
  5. Select “Build a resume.”

You can also access this option differently:

  1. Find the “Jobs” icon in the navigation menu.
  2. Look for “Resume Builder” in the left sidebar.

A new window will open to see a list of all the resumes you have previously uploaded in the Resume Builder. You can preview, edit, copy and delete them by pressing the three horizontal dots next to each draft.

How to Upload Your Resume on LinkedIn

If your resume list on LinkedIn is empty, you can fix this by uploading your resume.

To save your resume for future job applications, here’s what you should do:

  1. Go to LinkedIn and click the “Me” icon.
  2. Select “Settings & Privacy.”
  3. Click “Job seeking preferences” in the sidebar.
  4. Go to “Job application settings.”
  5. Under “Manage your resumes,” click the “Upload resume” button.
  6. Browse your resume and open the file.

On the other hand, if you want to add your resume to your profile, a different method will be necessary:

  1. Open LinkedIn and then press the “Me” icon.
  2. Select “View Profile.”
  3. Click the “Add profile section” button.
  4. Find “Recommended” on the list and select “Add Featured” under this option.
  5. You can upload your resume on the next screen by clicking the “+” icon and selecting “Add media.”
  6. Save the changes, and you’re done.

The resume you upload to your profile this way will be visible to other users, but you won’t be able to use it for job applications.

How to Create a Resume on LinkedIn

If you have yet to create your resume, you can do that directly on LinkedIn.

  1. Open the LinkedIn website and log in.
  2. Click the “Me” icon at the top and choose “View Profile.”
  3. Find the “More” button on your profile.
  4. Navigate to “Build a resume” in the dropdown.

If you already have a resume prepared in DOCX or PDF format, you’ll be able to upload and edit it later. You can also get started without uploading a document by clicking “Create from profile” and following the instructions on your screen.

Creating your resume directly on LinkedIn gives you access to several useful tools. For instance, you can get keyword suggestions to optimize your resume. You don’t have to worry about formatting either, as LinkedIn resumes are compatible with recruiters’ screening software.

Once you’re done, you can download your LinkedIn resume as a PDF by clicking “More” in the top right corner and then “Download as PDF.” Upload this PDF to your job application settings, and you’ll be able to use it for your future applications.

Additional FAQs

Is my resume public on LinkedIn?

There are two ways to upload a resume on LinkedIn: adding it to your profile and uploading it for job applications. The former method will make your resume visible to network members. The latter approach will store your resume privately, and only the recruiters you submit it to will be able to see it. Make sure you upload your resume correctly, depending on your goal.

Can I add more than one resume to my LinkedIn?

Yes, LinkedIn will allow you to store up to four resumes in your account.

Keep Your Resumes on LinkedIn Up-to-Date

Your LinkedIn profile is like a resume in itself, but you’ll want to put your best face forward when the time comes for a job application. Check your currently uploaded resumes and remove any that are no longer relevant. You can also upload a new document or create a professional resume directly on the website.
