Resume vs. LinkedIn Profile

Does your LinkedIn profile directly reflect your resume?


As a recruiter, I see a lot of people on LinkedIn leaving out roles that are on their official resume, and different titles as well.


I assume people do this to fluff up how they look to clients/prospects/customers; would I be correct in that assumption? Has that ever backfired for you when looking for a new job and your resume doesn't line up to what they saw on your LI?


I know a lot of resumes are similar in omissions and fluff, but as employment verifications are on the rise (at least in my industry), I'm curious if anyone has ever seen any ramifications - or really just any opinions/feedback on the situation as a whole.

LI same as Resume?
