If you don't have an experience or education entry on your profile, you'll have the option to import information from your resume onto your profile:

  1. Click Profile at the top of your homepage.
  2. Move your cursor over the Down arrow next to the View Profile As button and select Import resume.
  3. Click Choose file or Browse to locate your resume on your computer.
  4. Click Upload resume. You'll be taken to a page where you can review the information extracted from your resume.
  5. Double check all fields to be sure the information is completed and correct.
  6. Click Save.

The Import resume option may not be available if you already have a sufficient amount of information added to your LinkedIn profile. If you don't see the Import resume option, try our personalized guided editing tour to complete your profile instead.

Note: The resume importer only accepts English and French text at this time.
