Turn your LinkedIn profile into a great-looking resume

I don’t have much use for a resume these days, but when I came across this post on MakeUseOf.com about using your existing LinkedIn profile to quickly create a professional-looking resume, I was intrigued. I was also skeptical that a machine could take the data in the LinkedIn profile and turn out a document as nuanced as a resume.

I decided to give one of the two services a spin (the one that doesn’t require its own account) just to see if it really was as easy as MakeUseOf claimed:

Resume Builder is by far the quickest way to turn your LinkedIn profile into a professionally looking, minimalist resume. It was created as part of LinkedIn Labs and the whole process takes no more than a few minutes:

The verdict is yes, it really was that easy. I was able to construct this resume in less than five minutes:  http://resume.linkedinlabs.com/85brx1cvb

The really killer feature is that your saved resume is updated in real-time as you update your LinkedIn profile. If you are the type of person who is constantly tweaking their resume and LinkedIn profile, this awesome little service may help you kill two birds with one stone.
