How to delete your resume from LinkedIn

LinkedIn has the option of uploading and displaying your resume. This option is intended to make it easier to submit your resume when applying for a job.

However, the things you include in a resume may change depending on the position you are applying for.

In addition, you may need to update your resume occasionally when you acquire a new skill or qualification.
