Backing up your LinkedIn profile should be a once-a-month routine and is so easy to do:
Step 1: Go to your Profile – either View or Edit is fine.
2. Click the drop down next to Edit, and then click the link that says “Export to PDF.”
BONUS: Email that PDF file to a long-term email address, like your Gmail account. That way you’ll have it forever!
