My conversation with Claude Ai was interesting. I decided to get back on LinkedIn, after a long absence, so I consulted with Claude, the new Ai from Anthropic.
Here is my conversation with Claude Ai:
Me: “Here’s the deal Claude, I have worn so many hats in my life and related to so many people in different disciplines that now I’m trying to write a nice summary for LinkedIn (I’ve decided to get back on LinkedIn) I think I need your help.”

“I’d be happy to help summarize your background for a LinkedIn profile! Here are a few suggestions:
- Lead with your most relevant or current role and work backwards chronologically. Focus on accomplishments and impact rather than just listing job titles and duties.
- Highlight key skills that you want to convey – leadership, communication, problem-solving etc. You can weave these in when describing your roles and projects.
- Be concise – LinkedIn summaries tend to be 2-3 paragraphs at most. Use bullet points if helpful to organize key facts.
- Add specifics – metrics, awards, testimonials can make your summary stand out while remaining professional.
- Tailor it to your goals – if looking for a new job or clients, align to those needs. If just connecting, keep it more general.
- Close with an eye to the future – summarize your passions, interests and what motivates you now.
Let me know if you’d like me to draft a summary for you based on your background and goals! I’m happy to take a first pass and then get your feedback to refine it.”
I responded: “I love marketing and currently build websites and do SEO for clients. However, my first love has always been music. I graduated from college with a degree in music performance, I fronted bands for years, including working with name artists like The Spinners, Greg Alman, Stan Kenton, and The Temptations. I also led my own bands for 7 years in Oakland, and another 5 years in Las Vegas until covid shut everything down. Through all of this I was a mortgage broker, supporting my music by day, and performing by night. Anyway, that’s just a quick start. Thanks for helping me with this.” Sean.

My Conversation with Claude Ai was interrupted
Me: “Thank you so much Claude. I have to break for dinner right now. If I come back later or tomorrow, would that be ok. If so, I will bring what you have already written and we can go from there.”
Claude Ai responds: “No problem at all! I’m happy to pick back up and continue refining your LinkedIn summary whenever you’re available next. So, just share the draft I’ve provided so far and we can use it as a starting point to keep enhancing it. My schedule is flexible, so feel free to come back later today or anytime that works for you.
