Storytelling: My LinkedIn Summary

I wanted to rewrite my LinkedIn Summary to reflect my current pursuits and the direction I was heading in. A LinkedIn Summary is the first thing people see when visiting your profile. I wanted my summary to give a strong impression of who I was, where I came from, and where I was going.

I used the following criteria to rewrite my summary:

  1. Summarize my past accomplishments

  2. Show my skills and expertise

  3. Show my interest and passion for my field

  4. Show my future aspirations and pursuits

Soon after rewriting my summary, I saw a jump in profile views from across various industries. I have received compliments and proposals for collaboration from strangers, based simply on my LinkedIn Summary.

Rather than seeing my LinkedIn Summary as an abstract of my CV, I approached it as a short autobiography. It was an opportunity for me to tell my story.

If you would like to tell your story, on LinkedIn, on your personal or company website, I hope you’ll consider letting me be the author of that story. You can get in touch with me here.
