Do you need a professional headshot for Linkedin?
Every day I am asked, “Do I need a professional headshot for Linkedin?” The answer is Yes! When you go onto Linkedin do you look at profiles with no pictures or a selfie? More and likely the answer is no. I know I will skip profiles without a professional image. You may have a killer resume, but people want to know who you are.
In today’s digital world more and more employers are checking out social media to see who you are before they call you for an interview. When you have a professional headshot on your profile you are more and likely to be viewed over one without a profile image. On Linkedin you are going to get more responses and conversations from recruiters and employers if you have your professional headshot, then without one. Bryan Engel a headshot photographer out of California says “A professional headshot is a way to communicate who you are along with your resume. It will reflect professionalism and that you are serious in your industry”
What does your current headshot say about you? Does it say you are confident, approachable or trustworthy? Do you trust your current image to do this? You probably spent good money on having your resume done, don’t have a subpar image on your Linkedin profile, this will just put you at the bottom of the pile if your image does not look approachable.
