Headshot photo it’s one of the most important photo for your professional career, but what happens if your profile picture is not professional?
A new trend these days shows that recruiters find employees from online website like LinkedIn.The first impression that anyone can give it from their profile picture on the LinkedIn profile, before you even get a chance to interview.
so one person might ask what makes a good portfolio picture. a good profile picture consist of the head with clear image of the face. I personally prefer natural background like trees and wood lines or bricks from the house.
A good professional profile picture should deliver a message that you’re someone people would like to work with and would be a good team member in order to deliver that message the photo needs to be compelling get natural-looking.
On this day I had a privilege to work with this young lady. we start out with some more traditional formal profile pictures the light on this particular day was almost perfect not too much direct sunlight light. we got a few different looks allowing her to use the photos in different ways.
The photo in this series go through a nature trail in Burlington Massachusetts. these photos were taken at Mary Cummings Park in Burlington.
Going back to how important portfolio pictures are. First impressions are what’s most important. we only get a split second after a recruiter’s time before he moves on to the next person. it could be that Split Second that you will find your future career.
As you can see in this photo session I have captured young ladies multiple different looks and personality, it is up to her to decide what type of personality she would like to express and represent on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is one of the largest social network site and the world’s largest Professional Network, with more than millions of members and hundreds and thousands of recruiters constantly looking for potential employee for their company it is only benefit to you to have a professional-looking photo as their Portfolio picture.
