  • Use industry-specific keywords. LinkedIn ranks your profile based on search terms, so having the right keywords in your summary can get you closer to the top. Don’t overdo it, though!
  • Write in a first-person perspective. While Professional bios are written in third-person, LinkedIn summaries are an opportunity for readers to learn more about you and your voice.
  • Explain what you do now in the simplest way possible. Even if you’re still an undergrad, your experiences are worth writing about. Let potential employers know why only you can do what you do.

How do I write a LinkedIn summary with no experience?
1.Break up your paragraphs. No one wants to read a wall of text. Limit paragraphs to two or three sentences each.
2.Include information about your non-work life. List hobbies, interests, pets, family, and so on. The rest of your LinkedIn profile is informational, so let the summary show that you’re a real person.
3.Don’t use the word “unemployed.” You’re not unemployed; you’re a future lawyer/teacher/astronaut. Focus on the future.

1.Add media. LinkedIn lets you add files, images, videos, articles, or even your résumé, transforming your summary into an excellent professional portfolio.
2.Remember: Just because you can use up to 2,000 characters doesn’t mean you need to use all of them. A clear, concise summary can be just as effective as a longer one.
