Like your resume and your cover letter, you know that a LinkedIn profile is a must-have in your job search. It’s not only a great platform for job seekers to showcase their work, but it also has the added benefit of having recruiters crawling all over it.
1. Make Sure Your Personality Shines Through
Yes, LinkedIn is a professional social network, but that doesn’t mean you have to speak in the third person and drone on and on about how many years of experience you have.
2. Make Sure You Have a Strong Pick-up Line
If you want someone to take the time to go through your whole summary, consider writing an irresistible opening line, and then tying everything back to it. An old trick perhaps, but it works.
3. Make Sure You Connect All the Dots
The summary is the place for you to connect the dots of your experience.
So, whatever you do write, remember to imbue some of your personality, have a hook, and tie it altogether. It’ll make all the difference.
