The Anatomy of the Best LinkedIn Headlines
In this infographic, we'll explain what makes up the best LinkedIn headlines.
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.
1. What is the LinkedIn headline?
2. Why is your headline so important?
3. What are keywords and why do they matter?
4. How to use keywords to optimize your headline
You can do this by using our Targeted Resume tool
which highlights important keywords in the job descriptions that you're applying for.
