So, you have the skills, you know how to ace interviews, and you have a great portfolio. All you need now is a profile picture. Some people may not like the idea of posting their face up for the world to see, but employers are very picky about considering, let alone hiring, someone with a blank profile picture. It adds that personal touch; a face behind the name.
Here are some important guidelines to follow for a great profile picture. You do not necessarily need to follow this advice, but it could be what makes the difference when trying to land that important customer!
1. Make It Personal: Have a picture of your face. Not you and your friends, your dog, you and your partner, etc. This is your job, and your time to shine, so it should all be about you. Avoid using any obstructive clothing, such as: hoodies, hats, scarves, sunglasses, etc. Ensure your whole face is visible.
2. Make It Proportionate: Nobody likes to see a pixelated, squashed or rotated face for a professional profile photo. Make sure your face is central, proportionate to the surroundings and ensure the photo itself is of a reasonable quality.
3. Make It Neat: It sounds daft, but ensure the photo as a whole is ‘neat’. That means making sure you’re reasonably groomed, at least smart casual dress, with a plain or professional background. The last thing an employer would want to see is a picture of your face with your bed and dirty laundry in the background of the photo. A plain, single coloured wall would be just fine. Don’t forget to smile: This isn’t a passport mugshot photo. Crack a smile, let just enough personality through so that employers feel confident you are not a robot with no sense of humour!
Please note: Using a photo of someone unassociated with the account is strictly prohibited, and disciplinary action will be taken should such a case occur.
