  11. 11. 1. Mind your language Your profile summary is one of the first things people look at, so it’s important to get it right. You want the reader to want to know more about you, so start with something punchy. You can do this through specific phrases, storytelling or even clever use of punctuation. Don’t be afraid to lead with a short sentence, such as ‘Music is my first love.’ Above all, you should always keep your reader, or customer, firmly in mind.
  12. 12. LinkedIn data shows you only have five to ten seconds to impress a potential employer online. “ “
  13. 13. 2. Be direct It’s often tempting to speak in the third person when it comes to our working lives – don’t! It’s impersonal and won’t draw the reader in. Take a professional tone and be assertive and direct when you’re talking about your achievements, don’t hide behind buzzwords or jargon. At the same time, don’t shy away from adding some personality to your language – this is a great way to show your character.
  14. 14. 3. Make the most of your experience List out all your relevant previous roles and describe the work you did there in everyday language. This will help people understand the breadth of your ‘work story’ – a complete profile reflects a well-rounded person.
  15. 15. LinkedIn profiles are 12x more likely to be viewed if they list at least one previous role. “ “
  16. 16. 4. Show, don’t just tell While language is important, so is showing real examples of your work. Instead of using buzzwords like ‘strategic’, prove it by uploading presentations or projects that bring this to life. These are individual to you and help paint the picture of your special skills and unique background – whether that’s an image from a launch of a big campaign or the blog you write in your spare time.
