Linkedin have been stepping things up over the last 6 months and really improving the features that we all use on a daily basis and they have just launched a feature that will be useful to the millions of people looking for work out there at the moment with the instant resume.

With all the information about your professional career already stored on Linkedin it makes sense that there is an easy way to automatically generate a CV and to be honest I’m surprised that this feature has not existed up until now. The information populates automatically and you can then select a number of templates. Once you have finished mocking up your CV you can go ahead and print the CV or publish it as a PDF. Here is an example of what the CV will look like when finished. There really is no excuse for not having a properly formatted CV now but you will have to make sure your Linkedin information is up to date and accurate.
