Yet, over 50% of profiles do not include a Summary -- 2,000 characters of prime real estate located below the Headline.  By skipping a Summary, you miss a great opportunity to promote and differentiate yourself in a competitive job market. </p> <p>This workshop will show you a collection of LinkedIn Summaries that pop!  Many of the best incorporate specific techniques such as an anecdote, a "hook," or use humor.  Others highlight accomplishments, or include a 3rd party testimonial.  Learn how to write a "call to action" and where to include your list of Key Words.
