Do You Need A Professional Headshot?
Social-media profiles are increasingly important in building your business identity. LinkedIn’s own research shows that profiles with photos are reviewed seven times more often than those without pictures. A 2014 Jobvite Job Seeker Nation Survey found 94% of recruiters use LinkedIn to find candidates for job vacancies.
What does your headshot look like?
More often than not, young professionals don't have a go-to headshot. Old student IDs, blurry photos from college events that required you wear a tie or dress, or cropped photos from relationship photos often have to suffice until one of your friends gets their hands on a camera that will produce a photo nice enough to make it seem like you now have your life in order. And unless you want to forgo a week's salary, hiring a "professional" photographer is a bold move.
It can be way simpler.
