LinkedIn Cuts Your Titl...

July 12, 2017

A lot of LinkedIn experts seem to have no idea. 

 

I haven't received advice from one, but I've noticed that a lot of people have. 

 

One tip is to not say what your role is, but to list a couple of great qualities you have.

 

"Iain Duguid - Passionate, effective, results driven." 

 

It looks ok on a computer, but on a mobile it might look like:

 

"Iain Duguid - Passionate, effecti..." 

 

I would rather see what a person does, so I prefer this:

 

"Iain Duguid - Creative Copywriter, Native Content Creator - Passionate, effective, results driven." 

 

Even if LinkedIn cuts off my description, it still says what I do.

 

Some people write a sentence in there like "I lead various projects which see an improvement of..." and it's cut off. You could phrase it better by saying "Improved projects by 300%."

Another thing to mention: Show your point of difference. What sets you apart from everyone else? I'm certain EVERYONE looking for a job would describe themselves as passionate, effective and results driven.
