Effective LinkedIn | How to save a copy of your public profile

Do you know how to save a copy of your public profile on LinkedIn as a .pdf file? The steps below explain why you and how to do this.

Why would you want to save a copy of your public profile?

There are lots of reasons why you may want to save a copy of your public profile:

  • Keep a copy for your records (especially if you have made lots of changes to it and want to keep details of how it used to look)
  • Take to business meetings
  • Send to potential clients
  • Compare it with your competitors’ profiles.

How to save a copy of your public profile

  • Click on Profile and then View Profile

 

  •  Click on the down arrow next to the Edit Profile button and then click on Export to PDF and choose where you would like to save the file.

 

 

  •  Open the file in your normal .PDF reader (e.g. Adobe Reader)

That’s all there is to it!

I highly recommend that you open up this .PDF file and check how your profile is shown to others.  It looks unprofessional to have a scrappy, partly completed profile. Do you want to give someone the impression that you do not care about your online appearance?

It should be 100% complete at the very minimum and LinkedIn shows you the steps you need to take to get to 100%.

If you need any assistance or training in how to do this we provide training courses that can be personalised to show you how to have a profile you can be proud of.
