Showcase your professionalism, both inside and out, with a winning professional photo.
Professional photos are essential to setting you and your business apart. You've heard the saying, “Never judge a book by its cover." While charming, it isn’t entirely plausible in the real world. The reality is that we are all judged, or perceived, by the way we look. Particularly when it comes to professional situations; job interviews, making connections, and networking. You have a short amount of time to make a good first impression.
That’s why it’s incredibly important to always appear professional, both in-person and online. While most career-driven individuals understand the importance of business professional attire in-person, far too many fail to exude that same professionalism online. The very first place (or next place) most professional contacts will see you!
Instead of using a selfie-stick to take your next LinkedIn photo, consider a professional headshot instead.
Here are a few reasons why:
Look the part - if you want to be treated like a professional, you have to look like a professional.
Take yourself seriously - making a small financial investment in a professional photo shows that you take yourself and your career seriously.
Stand out from the crowd - as important as a professional headshot is to a winning career, many still rely on the on the poor-quality point-and-shoot, or even worse, cell phone photos that they ask their friends to take. You'll make recruiters, potential employers, and important contacts take a closer look by sharing a photo that's high-quality and visually appealing.
Stay top of mind - by including a memorable professional photo on your social media accounts, you allow people to put a professional face with a name. You're more likely to stay top-of-mind to the important people who look you up online, whether before or after meeting you.
This is your only shot - we live in a fast-paced digital world, where important contacts are often too busy to read more than a few lines of your resume. A good headshot if your only way to make a good first impression. Don't waste that opportunity!
