Begin with how you can help and explain how others can help you.
Your summary on LinkedIn is extremely important. Think of it as a cover letter or a brochure. Use it to market yourself (as a potential employee, as a contractor, or within your company). It should be all about you, but first suggest ways that you can help others.
Second, make sure that you include whatever is unique and interesting about you. What have you done that no one else has? What cannot be listed in your resume, but would be important to a potential employer?
Lastly, explain how others can help you. List whether you are searching for a new position, are looking to move, want to find a place to volunteer, or are willing to connect. This will bring results.
