What Should My LinkedIn Headline Say?
A few quick tips before I get to the specific examples you can swipe:
• DON’T use your official job title if it doesn’t explain what you actually do.
• DO use keywords you want to show up in searches for.
• DON’T say “unemployed” or “seeking new opportunities.” (You’re wasting the opportunity to name your expertise and risk looking a bit desperate in the process.)
