How to Adapt Your Brand Statement Samples for Use Across Your Career Materials

Getting Started

After creating your brand statement, you can adapt it for your CV or resume summary, LinkedIn summary (“About” section), and portfolio/website. Please see examples of the brand statement and its adaptations below.

Key Takeaways

  • Can be in first person or without pronouns; best to avoid third person because it can sound awkward. 
  • Use your brand statement as a diving board to help you build your CV or resume summary, LinkedIn summary, and portfolio biography (examples listed below).

Driven by the collaborative process with experience communicating with designers, developers, marketing teams, and executives to deliver outcomes that enhance the user experience across web and mobile platforms.

Adapting for the Resume Summary

Key Takeaways

  • Must not include pronouns.
  • Omit details listed elsewhere on the CV or resume for conciseness (e.g., education, a full list of technical skills, specific achievements or projects). The exception to this is if you want to emphasize a qualification, such as a recently completed program, at the top of the resume.
  • Summary should be three to five sentences where you highlight a mix of the role you want at graduation, achievements, and soft skills. If an employer has two candidates with the same tech skills, they will defer to the summary to see if there is something that sets you apart from the other candidates.

Adapting for the LinkedIn Summary (“About” Section)

Key Takeaways

  • More similar to the brand statement than to the CV or resume summary.
  • First person is ideal, but omitting all pronouns is okay. Third person should be avoided, since it can sound awkward.
  • You can use your brand statement as is on LinkedIn, but there is flexibility in formatting. The content can be expanded if desired but should avoid listing every detail about your experience, skills, etc., since those are listed in sections underneath in your profile.
  • Might include an invitation to connect at the end (great for those wanting to expand their network).
  • LinkedIn instructions on adding bullets and links to your profile: https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/1237/formatting-text-or-adding-links?lang=en

Adapting for the Portfolio Bio

Key Takeaways

  • Most similar to the brand statement and LinkedIn summary.
  • Can include personal interests or hobbies that demonstrate how they make you a better web developer or how they fuel and inspire your work. For example: “Fun fact: My first website was built as a photo portfolio (i.e., shrine) of my cat, Jinx. No matter how far the UI has come, she still doesn’t approve of it.” 
  • Might include an invitation to contact with a link to the portfolio’s “Contact” section or page.
