Hi Chris,

Thanks for the feedback. If you have the new profile, you can upload presentations, videos, and documents to it if they are hosted on one of the providers that we are compatible with.

Here is an FAQ that explains it a bit: http://help.linkedin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/34327

With that said, you might want to upload your resume on Scribd (or possibly one of the other content providers) and then add it to your profile so it is easily viewable by others.

We'll also be continuing to look into how we can improve this experience in the future as well so keep an eye out for enhancements.

Derek

    I second Edwin Frontino. Why not make it possible to upload PDF?

    I third Edwin Frontino - Upload a .pdf - especially for Designers with a portfolio in .pdf format!

    Not worth my time to transcribe my entire resume (25 years of Financial Experience in addition to educational backround)

    I would like to have my CV on my profile, not make a user wade through a few different links to get to it. This should be a very basic option for a professional network.

    really annoying that simply uploading a .pdf of your resume is not an option. It should be simple.

      Considering that a resume is one of the few absolutely necessary components of a working person's portfolio, wouldn't it make sense to devote some kind of simple .PDF upload option rather than treating it as some kind of headache-inducing way to push people to use Slideshare?

      Maybe devote a whole button to it.

        Hey Everyone - LinkedIn just announced a new enhancement that solves the problem here. You can now just upload the file for your resume. http://blog.linkedin.com/2013/05/01/visually-enhance-your-professional-story-on-your-linkedin-profile/

          So to confirm, there is no longer a way to simply post your resume, like there used to be? I removed my resume to post an updated copy and the entire feature disappeared. Now I'm supposed to go to a completely different website, post it there and embed a link? Two places to keep updated now? Thanks for taking something simple and making it complicated.

            Heidi,

            Now that the feature has been fully rolled out, LinkedIn is giving you the option to upload files or attach a link. Click on the blue media files icon to see the different options.

            To be honest, although it takes several additional steps to use SlideShare, the benefit to using that instead of just uploading a file is that every week you learn how many people opened your document and downloaded your document via email notification even though you are now a premium member to just look at the statistics. I would think that for a job seeker, having that type of information could be beneficial. Especially if it is combined with who viewed your profile for the week.

            Sorry Crystal, I've tried to follow your directions but I do not have a blue media files/box icon, just the blue pencil. I see others on this comment trail have the same problem. I will check back periodically and see if the feature to post my resume becomes available.

              Once the pdf is uploaded click on it and you have the option to "slideshare" your presentation or just share via email facebook etc...

              I hope this helps.

                Thank you for the advice. Can someone provide a step-by-step (1 through 10, for example) guide on how to easily upload a resume to LinkedIn?
                Thank you!

                  Kenneth,

                  Click on Edit Profile from the main navigation.
                  Scroll to the Summary section which by default is directly below the top box of the profile.
                  You will see a blue pencil icon and a blue box icon.
                  click on the blue box icon and you will get a drop down to upload a file or attach a link. Click on Upload a file.
                  A pop up will open to find the file you want to upload.
                  Click Save/Upload.
                  You should be good.

                  there is no upload file or attach option. EXPORT to PDF is an option ... but there is no upload file option.
                  Very aggravating. This should be a simple option.

                  @Malcolm directly opposite where it states Summary is a small blue square with a plus sign in the bottom right hand corner if you click here it should work just fine, as long as you follow Crystals instructions above.

                    Uploading a resume to our profile should be simple and headache free. I'm considering removing my linkedin account because of this.
