- [Instructor] Creating a resume can be an overwhelming process, but with a premium LinkedIn subscription, you'll have access to the Resume Builder tool, which will help you to easily convert your LinkedIn Profile into a resume. Let's check this out. So inside of Tracy's account, I'm going to navigate up here to the top, click on her profile picture, and then go to her My Premium dashboard. From here you'll see that one of the advantages we have with a premium account is Resume Builder, and I'm going to go ahead and click on this link over here on the right. Once I do that, it brings me to some information about the resume builder tool. I'll click on Try it out, and this will bring me to that page. Now you'll see here that it has put together information from Tracy's LinkedIn account, into a resume format. So here at the top I can see her name, contact information. If I scroll down I have her Summary. It's showing Experience, and here has her last job, the Creative Director at Explore California. Now, in Tracy's account she does not have Education listed, so that doesn't appear here, but even inside of here, in the resume builder, you can add things. So I could click on Add Education, and easily fill out the different fields: School, Degree, Field Of Study, Grade, etc. And then put in a Description or anything else if I want. I can also go up here and add onto other things. So here where it says Creative Director, I could click on the pencil icon, and I could edit this if I wanted to. Maybe there's some things that I want on my LinkedIn profile, but not on the resume. I can make those changes. You can add skills, certifications, awards & honors. Now on the right hand side, you also have access to smart tips. Here, they're giving you some great tips on how to write your resume. So I'll scroll down. And you also have the experience section where they're giving you some great tips on how to write that section. Now, when you're done, you can go down here at the bottom and click Preview. When I do that, it's showing me here Tracy Westbay's resume based on her LinkedIn profile. Scroll down, and that is what it currently looks like. Now if I want to, I could click on Download PDF and easily have access to a resume that I can send out then when applying for jobs. So take advantage of the Resume Builder tool to quickly convert your LinkedIn profile into a resume.
