LinkedIn provides the complete profile data in a ZIP file, or partial profile data as a PDF file. Resumonk can convert both these files to an impressive resume automatically.
It only takes a few minutes to download your complete profile in a ZIP file from LinkedIn, and we'd suggest you to follow this method.
Method 1 (Recommended): LinkedIn Profile ZIP File to a Resume/CV
Takes a few minutes and imports the entire LinkedIn profile data
Step 1: Download your complete LinkedIn profile as a ZIP file
Click here to access the 'Download your data' page in your LinkedIn account. In case you are not signed in to your account, you'll be shown the LinkedIn Sign Up page. Scroll to the bottom and click on the 'Already on LinkedIn? Sign in' link there. After entering your credentials, you'll be taken to the 'Download your data' page directly.
Select 'Pick and choose' option and check 'Profile' and 'Recommendations' boxes in it.
Click on 'Request archive' option.
You'll be asked to enter your LinkedIn account password again. Once you do that, this message will be shown - 'We will send you an email when your download is ready'. Keep this LinkedIn page open in the browser
Within a few minutes, you should get an email from LinkedIn on your registered email address with them. The subject line would be 'Your LinkedIn data archive is ready!'
Note: In our experience this email typically comes within 2 to 5 minutes. May be time enough to make your favorite cuppa or check out your favorite news site. :-)
You can refresh that LinkedIn page again and you'll see the 'Download archive' button there. Click on it to save the zip file on your computer.
Method 2: LinkedIn Profile PDF File to a Resume/CV
Note: LinkedIn PDF file only has partial profile information in it. We suggest you to use ZIP file method given above that will import the complete profile.
Step 1: Download your LinkedIn profile as PDF
Login to your LinkedIn account. Click on the 'Me' link in the top menu. Then click "View profile".
Click the "More" icon in the top section of your profile and select 'Save to PDF' option. The PDF file would be downloaded to your computer.
Step 2: Upload your saved LinkedIn PDF below
