LinkedIn Booster Tip no. 3 – Your LinkedIn summary statement.
First impressions count and your LinkedIn Summary is the first opportunity a potential employer has to find out who you are beyond a photo and a job title. So, make the most those precious moments. Never leave the Summary section blank!! This is the first thing that people will read about you and so it worth spending some time getting right.
You have up to 2,000 characters to describe your background, and you want to get these keywords in here as much as possible. To start with, write 4 or 5 lines that is a summary of your skills, work, studies and your aspirations for the future. Share your accomplishments, everyone likes a good story. If you can grab some attention with something about yourself that we wouldn’t know from your resume bullets, you’re heading in the right direction.
Good luck with writing a compelling summary!
