LinkedIn ResumeBuilder Tool

We’re over 2600 members now on our Walden University LinkedIn group – terrific!

Through my LinkedIn updates this morning, I learned of a valuable new LinkedIn application from Anne Pryor, a LinkedIn expert and one of my LinkedIn contacts.  LinkedIn is a great way to find out the latest trends and tools in your field and this was yet another example.

LinkedIn Labs, www.linkedinlabs.com, offers a free resume builder tool that instantly converts your LinkedIn profile into a really professional looking resume!  There are several templates to choose from and as long as you keep your LinkedIn profile updated, you have a quick and easy conversion tool to transform  your profile into a resume within seconds.   As far as I can tell, you must make edits to your LinkedIn profile to make changes to your resume.  Once your resume is ready, you can save the resume as a PDF file and share the resume url with others via LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and email.  Also, you can change the privacy settings to determine who can access your resume.

For a great article on other LinkedIn apps, see: http://mashable.com/2010/12/15/optimize-linkedin-profile/

Happy resume building and remember we’re always happy to review and make suggestions on your LinkedIn profile and your resume.
