I was applying for an internship online and one of fields I had to fill after the name field was "headline". What does headline mean in this specific context?

Here's a screenshot of the form. photo of the form

I can guess they mean address, but I'm not sure. Can someone please tell me? And thanks in advance


Definitely not address.

I think they are looking for a brief description of you / your skills such as would appear on your CV / resume. For example:

An engineering graduate with great communication skills

This seems to be common terminology in the US. I haven't seen it in the UK before (but I haven't applied for a job for many years!)

If you Google resume headline you will find plenty of examples and tips.
