If you’re reading this, you are most likely plugged into at least one social media site. Do you use social media as a way to market yourself for jobs and networking? If so, do you have professional photos of yourself as your profile photos?
A great photo can tell others how you present yourself, and ultimately how you’ll represent a future employer or business contact. I realize that not everyone is in or would like to have a corporate or straight-laced job. It makes more sense for creative professionals, for example, to showcase their style through clothing acceptable in their profession.
LinkedIn alone has over 347 million LinkedIn users. With so many employers doing an internet search on candidates, why not give yourself a competitive edge with an image that gives dimension to the fact-driven resumé?
