    Glad you made the point; didn't want to push it.

    Integrity is a huge factor in business success although the payoffs are cumulative and take a while to reach full fruition

    Gettoasty, ask yourself what "business professional" means...

    Thanks for all the ideas, finally changed it to some derivative of the same although I may just edit one more time.

    "Business Analyst | Highly motivated | Resourceful | Reliable"

    This just reads better to me for some reason and gets to the point.

    :embar: :butbut:

    I will give it a chance, it is what I am happy with and it seems like a "modern take"

    I will change it back to:

    "Highly motivated, insightful business analyst to assist in finance-related planning and special projects."

    But I just feel this is too gimmicky and screams desperation, am I wrong?

    May just be me, but I think you're overthinking this. For a recent grad, your linkedin profile/header really does not make the difference.

    My thoughts as well. I think the people mentioning "business analyst" were having a laugh. It comes off as quite presumptious. How can you be a business analyst when you are unemployed? Keep it direct. "Finance Major Seeking Career in Structured Finance"

    ...Or just put "business professional" and not worry so much about an opening sentence that most people put little weight into anyways.

    For those who have been working for a long time, when is it appropriate to just 'drop off your resume' to another prospective employer / connection?

    Been emailing back and forth with an internal at another company. I have no intentions of moving but you never know what will happen right?

    I just thanked them for taking the time to answer some of my questions and want to send them my resume just so they have it on file / future reference.

    Will this cause any problems for me?

    FWIW whenever I get these notices of possible opportunities I always take the time to brush up the resume again. I would at least like for them to see my "work".

    HAve your discussions veered to you potentially transitioning to the company? If so, you can send your resume and ask to be considered if something they think you fit for comes up. If not, don't. Just try to stay in periodic touch with the person.

    We are still figuring out where I could possibly fit in the company.

    E-mail sent without resume. Thanks,

    Isnt this what linkedin is for? So you can skip the dropping off of your resume, and casually talk about it without too much risk?

    I would never 'offically' give my resume out unless I wanted to jumpship. I receive calls from recruiters a few times a year and I am extremly blunt. You would need to find me something that pays X, in X industry, giving X amount of vacation, allowing me to work from home, yada yada. Thats typically where the conversation ends :)
