I am considering putting a line at the bottom of my one-page (US) resume like this:
"References available upon request. For a full CV, please view my LinkedIn profile at http://www.linkedin.com/in/MyProfile ."
Is this a good thing to do? Or should I say, "References and full CV available upon request" and have a Word / .txt file ready to email instead?
My main concern is not whether I should have a CV off of LinkedIn (copying and pasting my LinkedIn info to expand my resume is 5-minute job, so I can easily make one at any time), but whether or not the "CV on LinkedIn" seems too casual or lazy. I'm torn between the advantage to the recruiter of being able to go see my profile right away and know it's a complete CV (because I said so), vs. the more traditional "CV available upon request" that requires the recruiter to send me an email and wait for a response to get a job history that they know is complete.
I work in the field of software engineering, if that makes a difference, and have 6 years of experience post-college and 2+ years during college - plus I have contracted for a lot of that time and therefore worked a number of jobs (so some get highly abbreviated on my resume).
