Profile-killing headlines on LinkedIn abound.
((Warning: I am about to go on a well-intentioned rant!))
The WORST possible profile-killing headlines are ones that lack substance.
They don’t indicate value.
They don’t even tell the reader what field or job target that you specialize in.
- Looking for new opportunity
- Attended ABC School
The list goes on and on, but I think you get an idea know of what a profile-killing headline on LinkedIn looks like.
If you are currently looking for work, that’s fine.
But why not, instead, come up with something a little more meaty and energetic: “Decisive Accounting Manager Ready to Help Your Company Save Money.”
This tells the reader that you are open to new opportunities.
It also conveys value.
You also reveal a specific job title that summarizes your background while connecting to potential employer needs.
Remember, the more vague and less value-driven you are in your profile, the less success you will have in a job search.
