Then, let’s dive right in.
Hi, I’m JB Jezequel. I’m the co-founder of Evaboot, a LinkedIn tool that helps you generate leads.
I’ve used (and still use) these exact LinkedIn summary and bio hacks I’m about to teach you in my own business. For example, I used them:
After graduating with a Master of Science in entrepreneurship, I used LinkedIn to get my first job. So yeah, I know a thing or two about boosting my career using LinkedIn.
When launching Evaboot, a lot of our customer acquisitions came from LinkedIn. So, if you’re an entrepreneur, marketer, or salesperson, I’ve also got some tips for you.
LinkedIn has been instrumental in my journey, even when I co-founded the Shamballa mobile app and worked as an AI product manager in an AI development agency. I couldn’t be where I am today had I not learned and harnessed its power.
And I want you to speed up your progress by sharing what I’ve learned over the years.
There are many myths about LinkedIn growth hacks, particularly LinkedIn summaries and headlines. Most are a waste of time. That’s why I’m trying to educate LinkedIn users on what works and doesn’t.
So, are you ready to use your LinkedIn profile to drive sales?
What is a LinkedIn Summary?
A LinkedIn summary is the short summary section on your LinkedIn profile where you provide a concise overview of your professional life background, skills, achievements, and aspirations. It’s sometimes referred to as a bio, as it gives a short professional summary of who you are.
Consider your LinkedIn summary as an elevator pitch you use to get people interested in connecting, collaborating, or networking with you.
Your LinkedIn summary is an opportunity to showcase your personality, professional achievements, and career goals to potential employers, colleagues, and network connections.
LinkedIn only gives you 2600 characters for your LinkedIn summary. However, only the first 3 lines show on your profile before visitors have to click on “See more.”
Take time to optimize your summary, as it and your LinkedIn headline bear a lot of weight when the LinkedIn algorithm matches your profile and content with other users.
Why is a LinkedIn Summary important?
A well-crafted LinkedIn summary can make your profile more engaging and memorable to those viewing it. This helps create a positive and professional first impression.
Your LinkedIn summary is also important because it helps you:
Form emotional connections
Your LinkedIn profile is a powerful tool you can use to form emotional connections with your target audience. This is important because it results in lasting connections and higher engagement on your posts.
Rank high in LinkedIn search
A strategically written LinkedIn summary can help you show up high for relevant searches. This results in you being more visible on the platform.
If you’re a job seeker, you can use your LinkedIn summary to impress recruiters and potential employers. This is because it gives you the opportunity to shine the spotlight on your skills, capabilities, and achievements.
Tip: You can also take your recruiting game to the next level by using LinkedIn Recruiter to pick top talent on LinkedIn.
Trust is an essential ingredient in business. Your LinkedIn summary allows you to prove to prospects that they can trust you to deliver on your claims.
What Makes a Good LinkedIn Summary?
A good LinkedIn summary effectively communicates your professional identity. It showcases your strengths and skills and engages the reader. Here are some key elements that contribute to a compelling LinkedIn summary:
- Professional tone
- Personal branding
- Relevant to your target audience
While your LinkedIn summary is meant to tell other users who you are and what you do, it should also be helpful to them. It should show them you’d be a valuable addition to their network.
How to Write a Good LinkedIn Summary that Stands Out
Writing a good LinkedIn summary is super easy if you know what you’re doing. Here are some practical steps you can take to do that.
The first step is editing your summary or “About” section on your LinkedIn profile.
Click on the pencil icon in the “About” section to open a window where you can edit your summary.
Remember, you have 2,600 characters to work with. However, this doesn’t mean you should use all the space. Sometimes, a short bio is more impactful than one loaded with a lot of information.
Once you’re done writing your LinkedIn about section (LinkedIn summary), you can add your skills and click the Save button.
If you’re not confident writing your own LinkedIn summary, you can hire someone to do it for you. Or better yet, use the AI-powered LinkedIn summary generator by Mention.
All you have to do is describe yourself in a few words and choose your tone of voice, and the tool will do the rest. Here’s a partial example of what the tool can do:
You can edit the output to refine, remove wrong information, or add essential information the tool left out.
Remember, always write your LinkedIn summary in the first person.
What to Avoid in Your LinkedIn Summary?
Before we look at some LinkedIn summary examples for inspiration, let’s briefly look at some things to avoid.
Copying and pasting your resume
Your LinkedIn summary isn’t a duplicate of your resume or cover letter. Sure, there may be some overlap. However, focus on complementing your resume by providing a more personal and narrative touch.
Overly generic language
Avoid using clichés and generic phrases. These don’t add much value. Instead, be specific and genuine in describing your skills, qualifications, and experiences.
Jargon and industry terms
While including industry terminology, acronyms, and jargon may show that you know much about your industry, it can hurt your LinkedIn summary. For one, it can overwhelm your readers. Secondly, jargon can confuse those who aren’t familiar with your industry.
Instead, ensure that your message is clear to a broad audience.
A well-formatted summary is more visually appealing and easier to read. As a result, you’ll enjoy higher engagement rates. So, avoid presenting a wall of text. Instead, use formatting tools like bullet points and paragraphs to improve readability.
Overemphasizing job titles
While mentioning your job titles is important, focus more on your achievements and your impact in your previous roles. Don’t let job titles overshadow your actual contributions.
While your LinkedIn summary should tell readers about your life and achievements, it shouldn’t be an autobiography. Don’t include every detail of your life. Instead, only include information relevant to your goals. It should also be information your readers will find useful.
LinkedIn Summary & Bio Examples to Learn From
1. The Pitch
If you’re an entrepreneur, marketer, or salesperson looking to generate leads or sales, the pitch is the best LinkedIn summary for you.
This is my personal favorite, as it tells readers exactly what I’m about — turning people into LinkedIn lead-generation magnets.
Notice how I start with my results. This is how I hook my target audience. Next, I explain what my profile visitor will get by connecting with me.
Lastly, I end with a call-to-action (CTA).
This LinkedIn summary style is perfect for startup founders or if your role involves booking calls, generating sales, or anything else that drives your business forward.
2. Focus on your skills and achievements
Another great example of a LinkedIn summary is one that focuses on your skills and achievements.
This is an excellent way of proving your capabilities. It’s also a good way of gaining your prospects’s trust. This is essential to helping you:
- Impress recruiters as a job seeker
- Showcase your achievements and what clients can expect
- Proves the value you’ll bring to the table
This is a great summary if you’re in a competitive industry and want to prove your worth as a job seeker, recruiter, or salesperson.
3. Let your personality shine
I’m sure you can feel the positive vibes in this LinkedIn summary!
Letting your personality shine is another great LinkedIn hack for writing summaries. One reason I advocate for this is that it makes your summary a pleasant read. It also gives readers a sneak peek into who you really are.
Who should use this summary type?
I recommend this approach for those without much experience because it helps you sell yourself on your soft skills. I also advise this bio type for those whose main aim is networking. This is because it makes you look like an interesting person, resulting in a rapid increase in follower count.
4. Highlight your mission
Whether it’s a personal or professional mission, making it the core of your LinkedIn summary is another great way to boost engagement. I like this approach because it shows you have a bigger view of the world than just your immediate aspirations.
Another thing is that people see mission-oriented people as passionate and reliable. That’s a great trait, as it fosters trust and credibility.
5. The short and sweet summary
Despite having 2600 characters for your LinkedIn summary, one of the best LinkedIn summary hacks is to keep it short and sweet.
I love the example above because, despite being brief, it’s packed with tons of information the author’s target audience would find valuable. That just shows that you don’t need a novella to sell yourself. You just need to pick the right words. You should also pick the right skills, achievements, and roles to showcase in your summary.
One mistake many people make is giving away too much information in their LinkedIn bios. That just makes your bio bloated and can cause information overload. It may also come off as bragging. As a result, your engagement metrics will be dismal.
So, even if you’ve got a truckload of achievements, limit them to those that matter.
6. Tout your testimonials
Sometimes, it’s better to let others tell your story and showcase your achievements. That’s why including testimonials from employers, clients, or any relevant party is a fantastic idea, in my opinion.
Singing your own praises can often come off as pride. But letting others do that for you, that’s being savvy. And it’s a great way to prove you have what it takes to handle the job or deliver the solution your business promises.
The power of this type of bio is that it helps you leverage word-of-mouth marketing right on your LinkedIn page. And research shows that a whopping 90% of people are likely to trust a brand that’s recommended by others.
So, if you have some glowing testimonials, leverage them and tout them in your LinkedIn summary.
7. Mysterious figure
In the art of conversation, leave room for a little mystery; let curiosity be the guide.
In the art of conversation, it’s sometimes good to leave room for a little mystery and let curiosity guide the conversation.
That’s why adding a bit of intrigue and mystery to your LinkedIn summary is a fantastic way to get people curious about you. It’s also a great way to start conversations with strangers.
Take the example above. While it’s only one sentence, it sparks a million questions. For example, what is a resident farmer doing as a product success manager in a technology company?
If you can get your target audience curious about you, getting responses when you run your LinkedIn outreach campaigns becomes much easier.
Plus, who wouldn’t want to be friends with a James Bond type of person?
A little bit of mystery puts you in the same class, making it easier for you to grow your network. Your profile can become a connection request magnet, helping you bypass LinkedIn’s connection request limits.
8. The who, what, why formula
This type of LinkedIn summary is great for introducing yourself to new prospects and pitching your services/product. It does this well because it quickly addresses the main questions prospects may have about you and your business. These are questions like:
- Who you are and who your ideal client is
- What you do
- What other’s say about you (testimonials)
- Why your prospects should work with you
- How you solve your audience’s problem
I like this approach because you clearly introduce yourself, sell your services, and prove your capabilities. This way, you don’t waste time introducing yourself when you connect. Instead, you pick up the conversation from where you left it off in the bio.
This particular approach works well for people in the services sector as services. However, you can also modify it for physical products or marketing yourself on LinkedIn as a job seeker.
9. Then, now, next
People love origin stories.
And that’s not just in comics and movies.
People are fascinated by where you’re coming from, who you are, and where you’re going. This is because our origins help define and shape who we are.
That’s why you should leverage this fascination in your LinkedIn summary.
This means giving readers a summary of where you’re coming from. Ideally, this should be relevant to your current role. Next, explain your current role and why you’d be a good fit for your target audience. Finally, if possible, include your aspirations. This helps show that you have a vision, an important quality for many businesses.
I’ve used this formula and its different iterations a couple of times before, and I’ve found it to be impactful. One reason for this is that people love a good story. Another reason is that when people get a sneak peek into your journey, they can tell the kind of person you are and what they can expect from you.
10. Add color and flair
A simple way to write a great LinkedIn summary that stands out is by adding color and flair to capture a reader’s attention. An easy way to do this is by adding emojis. Bonus points if you use them strategically to break up text so that it’s easier on the eyes.
Another way of adding flair to your bio is by using different types of fonts. While you can’t do this in the default LinkedIn text editor, there’s a workaround using a Unicode text convertor. Check out this super short tutorial for more details.
Besides the eye candy from the emoji and different fonts, creating colorful LinkedIn summaries shows your pride in your craft. This pride shows you can go the extra mile to deliver on your promises. It shows you make a dedicated employee, business partner, etc.
LinkedIn Summary Templates You Can Use
Now that you’ve seen some examples of great LinkedIn profile summaries you can emulate, it’s time to write your own.
Don’t worry. I’ll help you with this by giving you some templates you can follow.
And we’ll break down these templates into different fields and situations so you find a template that perfectly fits you.
1. LinkedIn summary example for sales
I’m a driven salesperson with X years of experience. In that time, I’ve managed to:
- [state accomplishment 1]
- [state accomplishment 2]
- [state accomplishment 3]
A good combination of interpersonal and communication skills makes me a rockstar salesperson. My boss’s words, not mine (and from the results I get, I kinda believe him).
On the education front, I hold [qualification] and have also gained certifications from [name of certification and issuer].
I am a results-driven sales professional with a proven track record of exceeding targets in [your industry]. With a strategic mindset and a focus on delivering value, I thrive on the dynamic challenges that come with filling a sales pipeline.
In my [X years] of experience in sales, I’ve honed my skills in [mention key areas such as lead generation, account management, and negotiations]. As a [Your Previous/Current Job Title] at [Company Name], I [highlight a significant achievement or responsibility]. This experience has equipped me with a deep understanding of client needs and market trends.
When I’m not drumming up sales, you can either find me [state past time] or [another past time].
I believe this template works because it’s short and to the point. The accomplishments build trust while infusing humor and insights into your personal life makes you likable.
Remember, your LinkedIn summary is a critical component of your profile, so ensure you optimize it.

2. LinkedIn summary example for marketing
Passionate and results-driven marketing professional with a proven track record in [examples of disciplines you’ve mastered – e.g., crafting compelling brand stories and driving impactful campaigns].
I thrive in dynamic environments, leveraging a blend of creativity and analytical insights to deliver measurable results. As a firm believer in the power of digital marketing, I specialize in [Your Specific Areas, e.g., Content Marketing, Social Media Strategy, SEO].
Some of my key skills include:
- [state skill 1]
- [state skill 2]
- [state skill 3]
Want to see some results? (Of course, you do ?)
- Spearheaded a [X]% increase in [mention a specific metric, e.g., website traffic, lead generation] through a targeted [campaign/initiative].
- Successfully managed [X] campaigns, resulting in [mention quantifiable results, e.g., increased brand visibility, higher conversion rates].
So, if you need a decorated marketer who’s been in the trenches, follow me for practical tips and insights.
Or, if you’d like someone to help with your marketing, my DM is wide open.
This LinkedIn summary is bold, brash, and exudes confidence. Prospects won’t hesitate to take you up on your offer to help with their marketing.
Another takeaway is the calls to action (CTAs) at the end. People don’t always know what to do with the information we give them. Including a CTA at the end of your LinkedIn summary ensures you get readers to do exactly what you want them to do when they’re done going through your bio.
3.LinkedIn summary examples for freshers / recent graduates
Aspiring [your industry/field] professional. Recently graduated with a [certificate/degree] from [institution]. Despite being fresh off the wagon, I believe I have what it takes to help any organization in the [your field] sector.
While I may not have [achievement in your industry] or [another achievement in your industry], I think I’m very reliable when it comes to [responsibilities in the role you’re aspiring for]. That’s because I got high grades in my classes, interned at [company X], and took on similar responsibilities.
Other notable skills I’ve picked along the way include [skill], [skill], and [skill]. And with my shirts for knowledge, I’m driven to continue improving my skills, education, and experience.
I’m open to networking and collaborating with professionals in [industry you want to work in], so let’s connect!
One thing with freshers (recent graduates) is that the lack of experience means they’ve got nothing tangible to include in their LinkedIn summaries.
That’s why you need to be creative and communicate your skills (soft and hard) in a way that sells you as a capable candidate for your next role. Here’s another example template that does that very well:
I am a recent graduate with a major in [Field/Discipline]. As a recent graduate, I’m excited to join the professional world and use my skills and knowledge in [Industry/Field].
I was fortunate enough to achieve [awards, accolades, or recognition] during my academic journey. This achievement has boosted my confidence and strengthened my passion for [Industry]. I’ve always dreamt of the day I’d graduate, walk into the [Sector], and positively impact the industry.
My interest in [Industry] started the day our high school teacher taught on [Subject]. From that day on, I knew I had found my purpose and calling. That’s right. For me, [Discipline] isn’t just a career.
Besides my academic achievements, I have also gained practical experience through internships and part-time jobs. These opportunities have allowed me to hone my skills in [Discipline/Roles/Responsibilities]. I am also proficient in [Tools or Software used in the role you’re aspiring for].
As a person, I am friendly, approachable, and a team player. I also mentor a small group of youth from [Church/Charity/School] and hope to give them the necessary knowledge, skills, and wisdom they’ll need to succeed in life.
Despite being short, make your bio pack a punch.
Plus, a lack of experience doesn’t mean your LinkedIn summary can’t be impactful. You can get around that by taking certifications. For example, LinkedIn has some free online courses you can take. These carry a lot of weight on your LinkedIn bio, especially if you’re fresh out of college/university.
Again, use as many keywords as possible to help make your LinkedIn profile discoverable. A great place to find relevant ones is by checking job descriptions for the position you’re applying for.
4. LinkedIn profile example for job seekers
As a dedicated and results-driven professional with X+ years of experience in [Insert Industry/Job Title/Role], I help companies do/achieve [Insert Value Proposition]. Because I’ve been doing it for so long, I’ve refined the processes required to get the job done efficiently.
I am passionate about [Industry/Field] and committed to [achieving specific goals or making a positive impact]. Plus, with a background in [your relevant experience or education], I bring a unique blend of [key skills] and a proven track record in [mention any specific achievements or notable projects].
Don’t take my word for it, though. I’ll let the numbers do the talking:
- Social proof #1
- Social proof #2
- Social proof #3
I get my thrill from taking on challenges where I [insert specifics about tasks involved in your desired role]. So, if you need a problem solver to take care of your [main problem in your role], let’s connect.
When I’m not [prominent task in your desired role], you can find me at the local gym teaching kids how to box. This is usually followed by a short mentoring session where we discuss issues affecting their lives.
Interested in talking about [main topics in your industry]? Let’s connect. Alternatively, feel free to drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When looking for a new job, you should put your best foot forward. That’s why your LinkedIn summary must get to the point of who you are, what you do, and the value you bring to the table. More importantly, it must showcase your work experience.
To bolster your chances of landing your dream job, use social proof to support your claims that you’re the right person for the job. Don’t forget to use keywords that recruiters and hiring managers use when searching for candidates to fill roles like the one you want to fill. It also helps you to be discoverable on search engines, making your job search much easier.
5. LinkedIn summary example for IT professionals
I’m an accomplished IT professional with [Number of years] experience and a knack for problem-solving. In that time, I’ve become a specialist in [Your Key Areas of Expertise, e.g., System Administration, Network Security, Cloud Computing].
I’m extremely passionate about technology and using it to drive innovation, solve complex challenges, and help businesses increase their bottom lines.
? In my current role as [Your Current Position] at [Your Current Company], I [Briefly Describe Your Responsibilities and Achievements], I have a proven track record of [mention notable achievements, projects, or improvements].

? Whether it’s optimizing systems for peak performance, implementing robust cybersecurity measures, or navigating the complexities of cloud computing, I thrive on delivering solutions that align with business objectives. I also pride myself in successfully implementing innovative solutions that enhance operational efficiency.
? As a forward-thinking professional, I am enthusiastic about the intersection of technology and business. My goal is to [Briefly State Your Career Aspirations or Goals, e.g., drive digital transformation initiatives, contribute to cutting-edge projects].
? Let’s connect! I’m always open to networking with fellow IT professionals, discussing potential collaborations, or sharing insights on the latest industry trends. Feel free to DM if you’re interested in [Networking, Collaboration, etc.].
One thing you can tell right off the bat is that this is a long LinkedIn summary. To make it easier to read and digest, use emojis to break up sections, add color, and make it more interactive and fun.
Another thing to note is that the IT industry is always changing. Reassure your bio readers that you’re not falling behind but that you put effort into being current and relevant. This can be through certifications or by mentioning your proficiency in the current technologies and solutions.
6. LinkedIn summary example for HR professionals
I’m a dedicated HR professional with a flair for cultivating positive workplace environments and fostering talent growth. I specialize in talent acquisition, employee engagement, and creating HR strategies aligned with organizational goals.
Building strong employer-employee relationships is my strong suit. I get my kick from contributing to the success of the organization and its employees.

? Email: [Your Email]
? X: [Your X Handle]
I’m passionate about connecting with fellow HR professionals, industry experts, and anyone interested in the ever-evolving human resources landscape. Let’s collaborate and create impactful HR solutions together!
HR is a diverse field, so make sure your summary is clear about where your specialties lie. Again, achievements, skills, and certifications go a long way in ensuring you prove your mettle. Don’t be afraid of flaunting all these, as the HR field is highly competitive.
Another takeaway from this template is the use of emojis. Let’s be honest, HR can sometimes be a boring topic. But the use of emojis livens up your summary, making it an interesting read. You can also increase engagement by sharing personal anecdotes.
Notice how this LinkedIn summary template includes other communication platforms like email. This helps you take the conversation off LinkedIn for professional collaboration. It’s also excellent if you want to run multichannel campaigns.
Why is that good?
