Resume Help for Linkedin profiles:

Write for the network. Linkedin is a human network, so write as if you want someone to actually read your profile. In the summary section of Linkedin, this is what I tell readers about my services.

Make Your Experience Work. You want people who read your Linkedin profile to quickly grasp your professional capabilities. So write your Linkedin profile in such a way that people understand where you sit. Make sure your job description helps viewers of your profile see how your skills and experience can add value to their business or employee requirements.
