Do you know a headline that includes the right keywords will help you show up in searches and will be a great help to show the value that you can bring to the table!
e.g. if a recruiter type “Energy Project Manager” in the search bar, LinkedIn is going to show profiles of people who have the words “Project Manager” and “Energy” (along with other criteria) in their profile.
This means if you have these main keywords “Project Manager” and “energy” in your LinkedIn headline you will appear in their search
