Specify what you do
As a freelance consultant, you are effectively the CEO of your own business. Therefore it can be tempting to flourish your profile with titles such as CEO, CTO, CIO, or similar flattering abbreviations.
While it does sound imposing at first glance, it does not help you get contacted regarding a new project – far from it. These types of titles cannot give an idea of what you do best.
Instead, it would be better if you focused on bringing out the role in which you are a master.
Emphasize your role in the title of your profile. Clear and concise language will help draw the attention of recruitment specialists, who search for common role names.
Even if your native language is not English, it is recommended that you use English titles. Use the English role names – it will expand the pool in which recruitment specialists dabble, therefore increasing your chances to be found through those searches.
