Use the 1st person in your LinkedIn Summary

Use the first person in your summary, as if you’re talking to a potential client, or you’re talking to the visitor of your profile.

Hi there, Sarah Santacroce here. It’s tip number two of the ten tip series on How to Humanize Your LinkedIn Presence. Today’s tip is all about the summary and using the first person in this LinkedIn summary. In my opinion, there’s nothing worse than reading someone’s LinkedIn profile and having it written in the third person, that just comes off as very show-offish and there’s no connection between me and this person. I always tell my clients to use the first person in that summary, as if you’re talking to a potential client, or you’re talking to the visitor of your profile. I think that makes you come over as much more human, approachable and people can connect with you.

That would be tip number two, use the first person in your LinkedIn profile summary.
