What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question already has an answer here:

I am new to Careers 2.0 and I want my background details when I export my CV to PDF. How do I do that?

I found a workaround... but as this question is marked as duplicate I am not able to answer it.

I just copy pasted my background details in the description of my last open source project, and I made it as heading, So by just designing little bit it now appears in pdf as I wanted!!!

May be this will help someone until the feature is added by Stack overflow.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

This is currently not possible and a request to add such feature already exists. – Shadow Wizard Aug 4 '14 at 22:10
I have found a workaround. I added my background details in my last project's description and it is coming in pdf. I added background as a title, so it can be read in pdf as new heading. – Parth Trivedi Aug 5 '14 at 5:21
Nice, can you add this as a new answer here then? – Shadow Wizard Aug 5 '14 at 6:18

Questions about Careers 2.0 are on-topic for Meta Stack Exchange. From the MSE What topics can I ask about here? help center page:

If your question is about:



… it is welcome here.

Because the domain name uses it is usually fine to ask here to, but usually such posts are then migrated over to Meta Stack Exchange.

As for your background details, if you are asking about the tools and backgrounds sections, those are not currently included in the PDF. I've previously posted a feature-request to have those added:

Add tools and background sections to Careers PDF export
