Yesterday in an idle moment (one of a very few) i clicked on a linked in link to join an accountancy group that i thought sounded very progressive and could benefit my practice.

Imagine my diappointmeent when today i come in to find that i dont fit as part of their criteria and dont count as an accountant (yes i've just spotted the pun as well but cant be ar*** to remove it).

I have checked my profile and yes my latest updates arent accountancy related, but there is a little button that says see all, which then shows all my accountancy stuff.

My question is should i even bother pointing it out if they cant be bothered to look at my profile properly?

No harm in updating your profile and sending them a quick message I dont suppose but the real question I suppose you should be asking is what sort of first impression if your profile giving off to potential clients if an accountancy group dont think you are an accountant?

What's a "founding Entrepeneur in Residence"?

Your Linked profile is missing a heading which would appear just under your name.

Also are you sure you have not applied to join a "private" linkedin groups which is run by one of the paid-for networks?

Move on

My question is should i even bother pointing it out if they cant be bothered to look at my profile properly?

If the Group Leader takes that attitude then it probably isn't a very useful group.

I agree with zarathustra that your current headline isn't helpful to your business because I have no idea what it means. I know what symbiosis is and all about clown fish and sea anemones, but you should expand on the University role in your profile in that section further down.

Nevertheless I would have a headline that relates to your main businesses which according to the links on your profile are accountancy and tax.

I like the car numberplate but think your LinkedIn profile would do better with a portrait photo. It's good fun for AWeb of course. I will connect with you on LinkedIn though if you would like to. :)
