Many of us think🤔 of our LinkedIn profile👨💼 as our resume, and to be honest, it really is our resume. I mean, where else do you have such a comprehensive collection of information about your career path? That is precisely why many people🧑🤝🧑 like❤️ to know how to save LinkedIn profiles👨💼 as pdf.
What? We can do that?
Yes, you can download your profile👨💼 as a pdf document. The more exciting feature is that you can also download other people’s profiles👨💼 as pdf is one that is so perfect👌 for recruiters and employers who don’t want to waste a lot of time⏱️ just opening people’s profiles👨💼 one by one and scrolling down to view the profiles👨💼. They can just download many of them as pdf and review and/or compare them at a faster speed.
How to save your LinkedIn profile👨💼 as a pdf?
LinkedIn added this feature to its platform to help🦮 its users have their updated CVs anytime, anywhere. I mean, imagine that your CV is out of date and you want to apply for a job or for when you are going to a job interview and need an updated resume as a pdf. Where is better to download this most updated resume than on LinkedIn?
How to save my LinkedIn profile as a pdf? If you want your profile to be a pdf, just:
- log in to your account and click on the ‘Me’ button
- select ‘View Profile’.
- Once you are in, click on the ‘More’ button and select ‘Save to PDF’.
The process is the same for downloading other users’ profiles as pdf. Just find🔍 them from the search🔍 bar, open their profile👨💼, click🖱️ on the ‘More’ button, and save their profile👨💼 as a pdf.
Wait! Wait! Wait! Isn’t everything going too well? I mean, we don’t live in a perfect👌 world🗺️. Everything comes with a price, so what is the price in this case? Yeah, well, you will lose some details in the process. The recommendations, endorsements, profile👨💼 photos🖼️, and some other information will be missing from your resume. But still, the most important🖋️ sections will be there. Name, title📝, location, summary, experiences, education, contact🤝 information, top skills🔧, languages, and certifications.
I believe they are just enough👌 for a CV. To tell🗣️ the truth, most recruiters and employers won’t scroll down that much to reach the recommendations, and many of them won’t read them even if you send this section as your resume attachment. And about those awards and other sections, you tried so hard to achieve an award and other things but are they that important🖋️ in a professional recruiting process? Well, no. So maybe it is better to enjoy the feature instead of complaining about missing minor details!
There is another way too:
- You can open your profile and click on the ‘More’ button
- Select ‘Build a resume.
- Click on the ‘Create from profile’ button in the pop-up window.
- Enter a job title and tap on the ‘Apply’ button.
- You will see that LinkedIn built a resume for you and the significant point is that you can edit the information and add different things; you will have the awards section in this version.
- Once you are done editing, click on the ‘Download as PDF’ to save the CV on your computer.
You cannot do it from a LinkedIn app, so put the phone📱 and tablet down and turn your laptop🖥️ or PC on. Everything can be much easier now that you know how to save your LinkedIn profile👨💼 as a pdf, right?
