LinkedIn is an essential platform for every job seeker and recruiter out there. Many recruiters and job consultants expect to see your resume on your profile as it makes their job easier. So here’s how you can add/upload your resume to LinkedIn.

LinkedIn will store your four most recently uploaded resumes, which you can use when applying for jobs. This will make it easier for you to apply for more jobs and increase your chances of employment. If you haven’t made a resume yet, you can also use your profile to create one.

You can also check out a one-month trial of LinkedIn Premium to increase your reach on the platform.
