The Anatomy of the Best LinkedIn Headlines

In this infographic, we'll explain what makes up the best LinkedIn headlines.

The best LinkedIn headlines are specific and use the right keywords

The best LinkedIn headlines have two core components. First, they're specific and don't use vague (and often, pretentious!) buzzwords like 'Thought Leader'. Second, they optimize their profile for the specific keywords they want recruiters and hiring managers to look for.

You can do this by using our Targeted Resume tool which highlights important keywords in the job descriptions that you're applying for.

We dive deeper into the components of what makes up a great LinkedIn headline, what keywords are, and more in our deep dive report. Here are sections you might be interested in:
