Make good use of all 120 characters.
You should start by writing your LinkedIn headline in Microsoft Word (or another word processing program). You should use this headline to say who you are. This can be your actual title, your degree, your certification, or who you want to become. You can list that you are an “Energetic Sales Manager” or a ”Savvy Marketing Director.” You can share that you have a “Bachelor of Science in Communications.” You can show your certification or other credentials, such as “Certified Emergency Medical Technician.” You can also post the job title that you are looking for. For example, ”Seeking Position as a Computer Programmer” or “Future Nurse Practitioner.”
Once you have your headline in a word processing program, you should do a spell check. You should also check your typing and spelling visually (sometimes spell checking programs do not work). Next, you can make sure that your headline is 120 characters or less. Use the word count feature that is available in most word processing programs. Finally, copy your new headline and post it to Linked In.
Do not forget to update your headline whenever you are updating your LinkedIn profile. If you have a new job, start school, or stop working, then you will need to make sure that everything is accurate.
