5 Tips to Create the Ultimate LinkedIn Profile

  1. Wow. Nice brief article. Your 2nd point about thoughtful summary is totally legit.
    Your LinkedIn summary is the first thing a recruiter reads after your headline, so it’s super important to get it right.

    Some Do’s –
    Make it between 3 and 5 paragraphs long
    Use clear, concise sentences
    Separate the information in structured paragraphs

    Some Don’ts –
    Make it too short – one sentence won’t do
    Make it too long – don’t see the summary as an opportunity to tell your entire life story. The recruiters won’t take the time to read it and your main point will be missed

  2. Ahhh…. What an awesome article. I just joined LinkedIn few days back and was in process for updating my profile. This article comes as a life saver for me.

  3. Great article! Personally, I think that in several years people won’t be using resumes because of LinkedIn. I believe LinkedIn is the future of busines communications. The sooner people realise this the better. It’s good to start working on your profiles today.
