how can I upload resumes and cover letters for other people to LinkedIn?

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

           I am interested in uploading resumes and cover letters for other people to LinkedIn.  Seeing that I am new to this social media platform, I am wondering what steps would be necessary to accomplish this goal.   A link to a video illustration would be perfect.

           Thank you

As David said the only way to upload resumes and cover letters for others is to have their account login and upload it to the job posting or location they wish to load it to. I linked a LinkedIn help doc for uploading resumes for jobs on LinkedIn and options to upload cover letters on LinkedIn.

If they are asking you to update their LinkedIn profile resume then you would need their login and be able to update it from there.  Here is a video that shows you how to edit the profile resume.
Like most, if not all social media platforms, it's meant for individual use. What you intend to do is a direct contradiction of what the platform is trying to achieve (a secure personal space).
Only custom platforms with special authorization/hierarchy, like management/IT/user or teacher/student has functions where you do things for others.

If they are paying you to write the resumes and cover letters then giving you full access to their account (i.e. ID and password), then then it simplifies the issue.

At this point, I'm not totally clear regarding your role or the process.

If you're writing an article for job seekers on LinkedIn, you can add links to those document samples if they are hosted somewhere in the "cloud", for example shared through Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, etc.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

            I am afraid my goals were a bit confusing as stated within my question.  As such, I apologize for my ambiguity.  After carefully reading and re-reading everyone's feedback, several of my misconceptions were cleared up especially with regards to the rules for posting on LinkedIn.  At this point, I think my question has been adequately addressed.

            Thanks again.
