Easily export a LinkedIn profile to a PDF.

A young professional using a laptop to export a LinkedIn profile to a PDF.

If you want an offline version of your LinkedIn profile, it’s easy to make it into a PDF for sharing or storing.

You may want to share your LinkedIn profile with a colleague in a clean format. Or maybe you’d like to present it as your resume to a prospective employer. You may even need a copy of your profile in its present state before you make changes to it. LinkedIn does not save previous versions, so it’s a good idea to save your own copy before making changes. Good news — you can export your LinkedIn profile to a PDF in just a few steps.

Here’s how to export a LinkedIn profile to a PDF.

Starting on the LinkedIn website, there is an option to export a PDF. Follow these steps to create a PDF of your own profile or the profile of another LinkedIn member.

  1. Navigate to your LinkedIn home page using your favorite internet browser.
  2. Click the Me icon at the top of the page to open a dropdown menu.
  3. Choose View Profile.
    Here you can navigate to another LinkedIn member profile if you choose.
  4. Below the profile photo and cover photo area, click the More button.
  5. Choose Save To PDF, and LinkedIn creates the PDF for you.
  6. Save the PDF to whatever location you want.

You can download your profile as many times as you want, but if you’re using this option for other member profiles, you’re limited to 100 PDF downloads per month.

How to export a LinkedIn profile to PDF on a mobile device.

Saving a LinkedIn profile as a PDF is easy on a mobile device such as an iPhone, iPad, or Android. You’ll just need to be sure you’re using an internet browser — not the LinkedIn app. Once you download the PDF, it helps to have a reliable PDF reader installed on your device for viewing the PDF.

The Acrobat Reader app works great for this purpose, and it’s free. If you don’t already have it, download Acrobat Reader before you follow these steps to get a PDF copy of a LinkedIn profile on your mobile device:

  1. Navigate to the profile you want to print.
  2. Tap the More button underneath the person’s profile photo and summary.
  3. Tap Save to PDF.
  4. The PDF appears in the browser.
  5. Tap More and select the app you’d like to use to view the PDF.

That’s it. Now you can convert or share the PDF as necessary. With Adobe Acrobat, you can save the PDF to Document Cloud and access it later on any device.

If instead you need this document to be in Microsoft Word or Excel format, you can use Adobe Acrobat Export PDF to create as many files as you need. This tool can also convert your PDF to an RTF file or take scanned documents and convert them to PDFs.

As the creator of the PDF format, Adobe Acrobat gives you access to all the tools you need in one place to do more with your PDFs, quickly and conveniently. Take a moment to explore what else you can do using Acrobat.
