If you’ve ever seen me speak then you know that I’m… well… opinionated :p My opinion is that most people throw together a sketchy LinkedIn Profile, and hardly give any thought to the Professional Headline. Thus, most LinkedIn Professional Headlines simply stink. That’s why I wrote:
July 14, 2010: LinkedIn Professional Headline: Yours Probably Sucks. (92 comments… this is on my LinkedIn blog: Im On LinkedIn – Now What???)
One of the amazing things from this post is that a reader and friend (whom I’ve never met in person) jumped in to do the critiques. And he was brilliant. I was so comfortable with is critiques that I let him run with it. And he did… tirelessly!
Read my short post about why I think your LinkedIn Professional Headline stinks, and then sift through the comments to see what others have put, and how Peter Osborne helps them become better.
NOTE: I have since closed comments on there because I continue to get people who want help with it, and I don’t have the time to keep up with it. However, I do LinkedIn Profile Critiques (which includes the Professional Headline) for only $99. Here’s an example of what the critique looks like. If you want me to critique your LinkedIn Profile, let me know.
