Craft a Catchy Headline

  • Use specific keywords related to the job you want to optimize your headline for search.

  • Highlight your relevant skills, experiences, and career aspirations to attract the attention of recruiters and hiring managers.
    • For example, “Seeking Entry-Level Sales Role | Strong Communication and Negotiation Skills” effectively communicates your qualifications to recruiters.
  • Continuously update your headline as you gain new skills and experiences through university courses, extracurricular activities, internships, or projects.
