I few months ago I was asked for my resume. Seriously. It wasn’t for a job opportunity, rather for an insurance application. I guess if you are self-employed they want to see how good you used to be :p
Anyway, my LinkedIn Profile is the closest thing I have to a current resume. And I have around 60 LinkedIn Recommendations on my LinkedIn Profile… printing it off would clearly violate the “your resume MUST be one (or two) pages long” rule.
Do you have the same problem?
Let me share a tactic with you that will help you use your LinkedIn Profile as a quasi-resume, but not include pages and pages and pages of LinkedIn recommendations.
Actually, it’s not my idea, so I’ll point you to another blog. I LOVE the step-by-step guide to take the resumes off of your LinkedIn Profile pdf file.
Go on now, check out Wally’s Follies, specifically, Create a PDF of your LinkedIn Recommendations. He’s talking about just getting the LinkedIn Recommendations, I’m talking about keeping the other part – either way it’s cool (and free).
