Getting started on LinkedIn: Part Two – Your LinkedIn Headline
Why is your LinkedIn headline important?
Your LinkedIn headline is a vital part of your LinkedIn profile because:
- It appears at the top of your profile and is one of the first things people see about you
- It shows in search results (and if you don’t have a photograph it is the only thing that is shown)
- It appears next to any comments you make anywhere on LinkedIn (in groups, on other’s status updates etc)
- It appears on any posts you publish
