New to Resumonk?
You can convert your LinkedIn profile to a beautiful resume/CV using Resumonk in minutes. Just follow the simple steps listed below.
Once the conversion is complete, you can also select the best template/design for your resume, change its font & color and download it in PDF or DOCX format as a premium user.
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
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 'Download larger data archive, including connections, contacts, and your account history' option.
Note: LinkedIn will show this message - "Your download will be ready in about 24 hours". Please don't worry about it. They export the complete dataset in two parts. The first part has the profile information that is usually made available in approximately 10 minutes itself.
Click on 'Request archive' button.
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 'The first installment of your LinkedIn data archive is ready!'
Note: In our experience this email typically comes within 10 minutes or so. May be time enough to make your favorite cuppa or check out your favorite news site. :-).
Just in case you don't see this email in your Inbox after 10 minutes, please proceed to the next step. At times, the download is ready but LinkedIn fails to send the email.
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. The name of the zip file would be 'Basic_LinkedInDataExport_MM-DD-YYYY.zip' where MM-DD-YYYY is today's date.
Attention Mac Safari Users
The zip file downloaded by you might be uncompressed automatically by Safari.
If you don't see Basic_LinkedInDataExport_MM-DD-YYYY'.zip in your Downloads folder and instead see a folder with the same name, then you have two options.
Either you can re-zip its contents again, OR disable auto-unzip and then download the zip file once more.
Option 1: Re-zipping your files
Select the group of files under 'Basic_LinkedInDataExport_MM-DD-YYYY' folder, and use the right-click of your mouse or trackpad to choose “Compress” from the options.
Files should be compressed into a file called Archive.zip and you can upload this zip file under Step 2 below.
Option 2: Disable auto-unzip in Safari
Open Safari and in the menu bar of your computer, and go to
"Safari" > "Preferences" > "General"
Find the option that says “Open ‘safe’ files after downloading” and uncheck it.
You can now download the zip archive from the LinkedIn page again as mentioned in #6 above.
Step 2: Upload your saved LinkedIn ZIP file below
Important: Resumonk doesn't store this zip file on its servers.
Please note that this zip file also has information like your connections, contacts, messages and job applications. Our software reads only the profile information from this uploaded file. We are not a typical big software company that is out to sell or share your data with anyone. We value your privacy and really mean it.
If you are still concerned about uploading this data to our site, you can first remove the files other than the profile information from this zip, and then upload it.
