LinkedIn Resume Builder Takes Hassle Out Of Resume Updates

It’s difficult enough keeping your resume up to date, let alone keeping it in sync with your LinkedIn profile. To help, LinkedIn Labs offers a new way to automate the resume-building process.

Using one of their many preset templates, generating a beautiful resume now only takes a few short clicks. Using these templates will automatically input your previous work experience, and all data associated with it, into properly formatted categories and lists.

Open text fields let you fill in the blanks with more detailed skills, honours and associations. Users retain full control over the resume’s outline and can edit, add or remove parts at will. LinkedIn hosts previous versions of your resume and makes it easy to share your resume publicly, online or by saving it as a PDF.

LinkedIn’s Resume Builder provides a nice selection of fonts, simple templates, and makes it easier to keep an always up-to-date, professional-looking resume. If you’re looking to simplify your resume-building process and like to use LinkedIn, it’s a tool worth checking out.
