Dear Experts, What should you put in the current position listing on your LinkedIn profile if you have already left your last employer and are looking for a new position? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#416 If your volunteering, list org'n w/title "volunteer." If consulting, list yourself as firm (inc vol gigs). (@juliaerickson) Q#416 Agree with @beneubanks. Leave it as your previous job or something you want to do. (@gradversity) Q#416 I'd leave it as my last gig or change it to something you WANT to do. Make the case for hiring you! (@beneubanks) Q#416 Your last job with an end date of your last day. (@JoshuaWaldman) Q#416 Don't have to show a current position. For header, write a brief summary: Example: 'film industry marketing manager'. (@louise_fletcher) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
