2018 Manger Report

Annually I do a Manger Report, focused on blunt spelling errors I find on LinkedIn Profiles.

I try to contact my 1st level connections to alert those I know who have Manger in their LinkedIn Profile before publishing this article.

I found 206,266 LinkedIn Profiles with the word Manger in their current title field, and this year I excluded the LinkedIn Profiles with the French term “garde manger” in the title field as I learned these are ‘keepers of the food.’

Have you reviewed the spelling and grammar you used in your LinkedIn Profile? I encourage doing this.

I use Grammarly on my computers. this little app or chrome plugin does a dang good job of helping me not make ridiculous mistakes when writing online including in my LinkedIn Profile.

Here are a few of the typos I found in the title fields of LinkedIn Profiles for this article:

  • manger – 206,266 (excluding “garde manger”)
  • busines – 10770
  • profesor (United States Only) – 2989
  • admistration – 1783
  • enginner – 38301
  • enginer – 22437
  • engneer – 9039
  • enginneer – 3447
  • consultan – 377
  • cosultant –6535
  • consultent – 177
  • conultant – 137
  • represenative – 47
  • representaive – 4
  • repesentative – 695
  • excutive – 53987
  • exceutive – 3451
  • exeutive – 1818
  • presdent – 1389
  • vce President – 55
  • ownr – 412
  • dirctor – 5743
  • contrller – 209
  • resorces – 776
  • techer – 6240
  • englsh teacher” – 41
  • ambassdor – 795

Here are a few absolutely ridiculous titles for you to maybe giggle at:

  • “F*** UP” – 26
  • Jerk – 1407
  • Idiot – 1203
  • A**Hole – 689
  • “Fool” – 591
  • Jerk – 1406
  • Unemployed – 236803 (a lack of knowledge of branding yourself)
  • JackA** – 133
  • DumbA** – 176

How about a few quite ignorant last names:

  • F***er – 100
  • SH**Head – 22
  • Jerk – 175
  • A**Hole – 27

I decided not to search for any others. I get it, there are people who built a LinkedIn Profile with no real purpose or goal in mind. Some consider it all a big joke. I can give these people a pass on their ignorance. Or should I?

Branding includes putting some effort into spelling, grammar and your messaging.

Have a fabulous 2019 & Beyond folks
