Here is how to structure About me on LinkedIn:

  • Hook: Begin with an a sentence that drives readers to click "see more."
  • Talk like you, using "I", "me", "my".
  • Tell your story. Connect through shared struggles and desired outcomes.
  • Present your solutions, and your edge. What you do better + proof.
  • Whenever possible, use numbers and examples.
  • End with the clear next step — think "DM me AuthoredUp" or "Book a call from my featured section".

How often should you update your LinkedIn "About me" section?

Regularly review and update your "About me" section — at least every three to six months. Additionally, any substantial shifts in your professional life, such as a new role, a significant achievement, or a pivot in your career goals, should prompt an immediate update.
