What is a LinkedIn summary

[Back to Table of Content]

The LinkedIn “Summary” section allows a 2,000-character limit. So, this means you have up to 2,000 characters to dazzle anyone that lands on your profile.

Ideally, this section should contain an in-depth description of your career and your skills. This can come in extremely handy if you are looking for jobs.

By tailoring the summary to describe your professional experience and your accomplishments, you can show your value to any recruiter.

Before you begin, make the first line of your summary section extremely interesting.

Why?

LinkedIn only shows a couple of lines as preview and has a see more option. So, you need to reel in an individual by these few lines so they click and read all about your amazing skills and accomplishments.

On a desktop, this preview is approximately 25–40 words and on mobile, it’s approximately 20–25 characters.

You can also optimize this section with industry-specific keywords which helps you get on the radar of people searching for those keywords.
