  • 1. Personal Branding Ref: 0047Linkedin’s Resume ToolLinkedin’s new Resume tool,, is agreat way for candidates to easily present their career informationto recruiters and prospective employers.It’s important that a tool like a resume starts to evolve. If we haveonline profiles that change as we do, why shouldn’t our resume bebased on that information? Gone are the days of sitting down to“re-write” the CV once the jobseeking cycle has begun again…these days we should be able to have the up-to-date version at ourfingertips.From a recruiter’s perspective: passive talent are more likely tohave a current Linkedin Profile than a current version of theirresume. Recruiters should recommend that candidates use this tool – getting better detailsin to the Linkedin platform only helps searchability!To make the most of this tool, make sure you do the following:Have a complete ProfileCompleting your Linkedin profile ensures your Linkedin Resume is filled with the rightinformation from the word go. It also makes you easier to find on Linkedin, which is never abad thing!Keep that Profile up-to-dateWhen there are changes in your career – roles, responsibilities, achievements – update yourProfile. That way you’ll always have a current version of your CV ready at a moment’snotice.Send the link!Linkedin Resumes are good for a few reasons… one is that you can, of course, save a copyto send to someone/use in an application… but also because there is a dedicated link toyour CV online. Saves a lot of trouble to just send that when you can… and it’s alwayscurrent with your Linkedin Profile information.More and more sites are integrating with platforms like Linkedin… as a candidate, would youprefer to be able to apply using a direct link to your Linkedin Resume?
