Want to be inspired by an awesome LinkedIn Summary? Check out what Michelle Schmidt, from the Indianapolis area, did: Michelle Schmidt on LinkedIn.
It’s brilliant for a number of reasons:
- It is long: 1,952 characters. I tell people to get as close to 2k characters as possible… Michelle did this.
- She doesn’t list all the reasons why she’s a great resume writer (attention to detail, etc.). She says she is qualified to write resumes because… well, in her own words: “I know how my clients feel because I HAVE BEEN THERE. I have been in corporate America, shuffled in mindlessly from the garage, and felt the stress of possible job loss.”
- It is engaging. Michelle’s voice is casual, personable, and engaging. She tells the story. By the time I’m done reading it I feel like we can be friends, she can understand my situation, and we agree with things (see her last line).
Do this on your LinkedIn Summary. It’s awesome.
