I'm glad I started this discussion because it seems I wasn't alone in my frustration. After reading the discussion board and after a couple of emails from Customer Support, having the resume upload feature no longer available just isn't a big deal.

Now I use my profile as I believe LinkedIn intended it to be used, as a short and simple "resume overview" of my work history. I'll pull out the full blown resume when I'm applying for a job.

    This feature is a "must" as employers want your resume and profile sheet. This feature should have a : "hide", "view" and a "download" option to release or keep private. PLEASE CONSIDER THIS OPTION SERIOUSLY IN YOUR DEVELOPMENT. You used to be able to print a "LinkedIn" version and that button is missing too. These features make LinkedIn a much more viable service and means of connection amoungst professionals whether looking for a career or being a presenter of a presentation. At a minimum, please re-add the LinkedIn profile "print" button. Your Recruiters, Employers, Seekers, and Presenters all will use these features. I hope I convinced you of the "NEED". Thanks ! , you are a great source and a fantastic means for Professionals to communicate....pat yourself on the back....get better, do this.....pat yourself on the back again....Thanks with great appreciation !!

      To delete file from your personal profile you can by clicking on the pencil symbol on the right bottom corner of your unwanted file. Then click on "Remove Media" and that would be gone.
      Upload should be available after old is removed

      The "upload resume" feature is provided as way of rapidly building a LinkedIn profile. Content from the resume is used to fill the appropriate sections of a LinkedIn profile. In other words, the "uploaded" resume is used only as an "input" source for filling sections of a LinkedIn profile, and once the task is completed the "uploaded" resume is discarded.

        I just had a response from Customer Support and they have indeed discontinued help on the resume importer. I looked and looked and never did see anything about them not supporting the feature, but I could have simply just missed it. Thank you so much, I appreciate your input.

        I tried the upload resume feature once yesterday, but I never confirmed or saved the entries. Now it looks like I can't use the upload resume option anymore. It would help if the upload feature can be used more than once.

          Mr. Marnick - your profile is your resume or at least an overview of your resume. I figured that out from reading all the responses I've been getting to this resume question. You want to build out your profile with just enough information to get a potential employer interested to ask for a resume. That's when you hit them with the paper. Be sure you add some key words that an employer will be using in its seach for candidates. For example - since you're a pilot (I'm guessing that from your pic) then make sure you include the types of aircraft you can fly, if you're in the armed forces, put that in there. Get the idea? Hope this helps - Sue Roman

          I just read on the Linkedin help they have eliminated the resume upload feature. I could not find mine either. It was as of 1/15/2013. Unless this is a different feature they eliminated, it may be gone.

                Ms. Issa - just think of your LinkedIn profile as an overview of your resume. You don't want to put all the stuff in your resume on LInkedIn. You want to put just enough to get employers to find you THEN you send them your resume with the specifics about who you are and what your skills are. Be sure to add keywords that a potential employer might use in their search for candidates. Hope this helps.

                I just recently found this out, too. I uploaded a cover sheet of my resume and intended to upload the actual resume but it exceeded too many words so I couldn't upload it at all. Now, all there is just the cover sheet in which I want to delete but can't find it at all. What's the purpose of having this feature to upload resume without being able to view it on your profile?

                Supposedly I read the other lady's comment that said your profile is your actual resume but it still doesn't make sense when you had already had an resume done on paper with more info other than what's on your profile. Yes, I now know LinkedIn discontinued customer support for this feature which still raise the question: What's the purpose of having the resume upload feature when unable to view and find it on your profile? And you can delete it either.

                    It wasn't deleted it was more or less absorbed into your profile. Did you ever notice words and phrases stuck in places that you know you didn't put there? Weird, I know. I'm kinda glad they did eliminate the option, one less thing to "upload" when I make changes to the resume I send to potential employers.

                    This is ridiculous. I just paid for the "job seeker" account and the tutorial SPECIFICALLY says "you can upload your resume in seconds" but it doesn't show how the heck to do it and now it sounds like it can't be done anymore. Nice hook to get people to purchase. The ACTUAL resume is VERY important. Anyone can type in a few keywords on-line for a position. Why do you think there are so many courses and books on resume creation?!! To show what you have that the other candidates don't and to stand apart from the crowd. You picked a really smart area to cut back on, Linkedin.

                      You can easily upload a resume when you are applying to jobs through LinkedIn (some jobs send you over to the company web site and the experience there will vary by system, but those that say Apply Now will pop up a window where you can choose to upload your resume to attach along with your profile). http://help.linkedin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/161
