Writing a LinkedIn Summary for Recruitment
If you’re looking to write your “about us” for potential employers you have to lead with your experiences and skillset. Make it about yourself and less about the prestige of the companies you’ve worked for. Companies and business owners will look for skills and experiences that will benefit their companies. Looking for the right fit in culture, experiences and skillset. Your LinkedIn Summary will achieve this by how you write and what skills you highlight in the section.
You have a couple of paragraphs to work with, so you can go into as much detail as you like. But, remember that you don’t want to bore people with walls of text. Keep it as simple and effective as possible.
