LinkedIn's Resume Builder Makes a Resume From Your Profile

We've all used LinkedIn as an online resume, but a new feature creates a traditional paper resume for you by compiling information from your profile.

LinkedIn Labs, similar to Google Labs, is the experimental section of LinkedIn where new features are tested. The Resume Builder takes your LinkedIn Profile and creates an instant resume. You can share the URL of your resume with potential employers or print it out.

You could use a free template for your resume or Google Docs, but then you have to fill in all the details yourself. This automates the process.

Resume Builder has one major drawback: it doesn't export to an editable format. For now, you can only save it as a PDF. Hit the link at the bottom to try it out.

    Can't programs like Nitro PDF convert from PDF to Word for editing?

    Hey cool, now I can auto-populate my Linkedin profile using my resume then export my Linkedin profile to a resume!

    Jokes aside this could be pretty useful, especially if, as it seems, it allows you to manage multiple resumes.
