Your LinkedIn summary, also known as your “About” section, is the most exciting part of your profile. It’s a story explaining who you are while demonstrating your skills and achievements to recruiters and hiring managers. In addition, your “About” section also increases your search ranking. While it may not look like it, LinkedIn is a search engine, just like Google or Bing. The higher you rank, the more views your profile will get, resulting in career opportunities. Be sure to keep this in mind while you write your summary.
Writing may not be your strong suit, and that’s ok. While you may need help with this, we also know it can be challenging to decide what information is essential to include. Your story needs to impress recruiters and hiring managers. That’s why we have a formula dedicated to helping you develop your story, the Pixar Formula!
The Pixar formula will help you tell your story without the hassle of planning it all by yourself! Using it will help you organize your story, like how Pixar presents stories in its films. And who doesn’t love a good Pixar movie? They show us heartwarming tales that remind us who we are as people. So, the best way to boost our “About” section is by doing the same.
We’ll go over more details later, but just know that you’ll need to add keywords related to your summary and desired career. It’s best to choose keywords that are action verbs or technical skills. That way, you’ll stand out better to potential employers. If this sounds complicated, don’t worry. It will make sense soon, then you’ll be able to tell any story using the Pixar formula.
Write your story here. It doesn’t have to be the Pixar Formula or any other method. Just write a basic summary soyou can update it with the Pixar Formula in the next episode.
