What’s Your Headline?

J. Kelly Hoey - Build Your Dream Network

Sharing a tiny subchapter tucked away in Chapter 5 #Networking of Build Your Dream Network – as this week, my summer intern Nika released the LinkedIn-focused video on my YouTube channel.

Here’s what I had to say on page 161 of my book (and why I want to encourage you to look at your own “headlines” on social media with a critical eye this week – especially if your headline is simply a job title):

Titles don’t necessarily ignite conversation or reveal what you are capable of or striving for. Since we’re all cobbling together careers based on the sum of our skills, interests, passion, and experience, why not share that as your tagline or headline or 140-character bio?

Need more LinkedIn tips? Check out the second video in the “Back to School/Off To College” networking tips series created by my summer intern on YouTube.
