Are you a little embarrassed about your profile photo on LinkedIn or on your company website? Do you cringe when asked to send a photo of yourself to someone? If the answer is yes, then read on!
As humans we are a very visual species, and in this new digital age, your headshot is invariably the first visual impression you make on headhunters or potential new clients.
From some research carried out at Princeton University they found that it takes just a tenth of a second for people to make decisions about you based on your facial appearance.
People looking at your profile image online will be making snap judgments about your professional capabilities, your intelligence, your likability and even your health.
In another study, up to 90% of HR people say they check out social media profiles, especially LinkedIn and Facebook, before inviting a candidate in for an interview. This means the wrong headshot can scupper your chances of even an initial phone call stone-dead.
Our profile pictures matter whether we like it not……is your profile photo killing your opportunities?
