How to delete a resume from LinkedIn

Job seeking is a dynamic process, and if every aspect of it will be affected by constant changes, the resumes can’t stay out of it. Therefore, people need to update their resumes or CVs frequently.

What if they have uploaded a resume on a digital platform, most probably LinkedIn, some time ago and forgot about it? Then, they must know how to delete resumes from LinkedIn for their own good.

LinkedIn’s popularity grows each day, and currently, almost 800 million people use this professional networking website. The projections estimate that LinkedIn users number in 2025 will be above 1 billion worldwide.

In LinkedIn, people create their profiles and list their education(s), work experience(s), certification(s), etc. They don’t make only their personal profiles, but also they use LinkedIn for businesses effectively.

Anyway, we can say that LinkedIn profiles already serve as a resume or CV for job seekers or employers in that sense. Still, some people upload their resumes on LinkedIn and try to ‘hunt’ some job opportunities by this way.

Why do people want to remove resumes from LinkedIn?

There may be various reasons to delete a resume from LinkedIn. Sometimes people create resumes with very, let’s not say, incorrect but wildly ‘exaggerated’ information to find a job in a hopeless situation.

After sometime later, maybe after they found a job based on their ‘true’ qualifications, they may want to remove their resume from LinkedIn to prevent any unpleasant development.

Also, people even can create resumes with a blank page. However, there are continually new templates for resumes to influence employers, at least visually.

Therefore, people may want to replace their old resume with a new one created on a better resume template and delete their previous resume from LinkedIn.
