LinkedIn provides the complete profile data in a ZIP file and it only takes a few minutes to download it. Resumonk can convert this ZIP file to an impressive resume automatically.

Step 1: Download your complete LinkedIn profile as a ZIP file

  1. 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.
  2. Select 'Pick and choose' option and check 'Profile' and 'Recommendations' boxes in it. Download LinkedIn Data
  3. Click on 'Request archive' option. Request LinkedIn Data Archive
  4. 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
  5. 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. :-)
  6. 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. Download LinkedIn Data Archive

Step 2: Upload your saved LinkedIn ZIP file below

As of February 1, 2019 LinkedIn's zip file export is not working correctly for many users. The downloaded zip has only 3 or 4 .csv files that only have the basic profile & recommendations information in them. It doesn't have any important information like positions, education, skills, projects, certifications, honors etc.

The correct zip file has typically many .csv files in it based on the number of sections you've in your LinkedIn profile. Please check your downloaded zip file and in case it only has up to 4 .csv files, then you'll get only limited information imported to your Resumonk resume.

Please tweet to @LinkedInHelp or contact their customer service and request them to fix this issue urgently.

We've also raised it with them but if more users complain about it, hopefully LinkedIn will fix it sooner.


If you face any issues while converting your LinkedIn zip file, please let us know.
