3 steps to adding some flair to your linkedin job title

What do you do according to LinkedIn ?
Your title is the first thing that people see after your name, and it shows up in a lot of key places. When your name shows up, one vital piece of information accompanies it:

Your job title.Linked In Profile Flair

Unless you have a superstar name, your title is absolutely essential to piquing interest and making an impression on Linkedin. That title can be the one introduction piece that changes us from blasé Рto POP-pop-wow-I-WANT-MORE.

If you’re stuck on how to add some hot sauce to your job title, here’s a 3 step process to make it a little more spicy:

1. Add what you do
2. Add who you do it for
3. Add the interest –
What’s unique about your audience? What’s unique about the way you work?
What makes you awesome?

Example: You’re a college instructor who teaches English
1. (Traditional Job Title) College instructor
2. (Who you work for) First year students
3. (Make it spicy)
College Instructor who teaches wonderfully amusing
first year students to write with passion
Do you see how this is much more interesting that “college instructor” or “English teacher”?

Example 2: You’re a stylist
1. (Traditional title) Stylist
2. (Who you work for) Women over 40
3. (Make it spicy)
Talented stylist helping women look gorgeous in their own skin.
