LinkedIn has an application now that allows you to upload word documents, excel documents, and Power Point presentation’s. The application is called Box.net. If you are already on LinkedIn, you can access this application by going to "edit my profile" and clicking on add an application.
I came across this great application when I was recruiting for an opportunity and started to notice that some of the profiles I was looking at had word documents of their resume on their profile. What a great concept! Not only can recruiters and hiring managers see your profile, but now they can download your full resume.
As a recruiter, I love this application because now I can get immediate access to someone’s resume instead of having to wait for them to send it to me. My suggestion, get the box.net application for your LinkedIn profile and start uploading your resume today!
