A professional headshot is important for many reasons, including the
fact that it displays professionalism on your behalf. Taking your own photos is
great but when it comes to other professionals checking your profile or
potential clients considering your business, it’s very important to make a good
first impression. Whether it’s an interview for a new job, you’re in the
process of making new connections or you’re networking, a professional headshot
will help you achieve success and better results.
The reality is that you will be judged, at least to some extent, by your
appearance, which is why you must appear professional both in person as well as
with your presence online or in ads. Most professionals understand the
importance of the right attire when it comes to being present for a meeting in
person, however, this same professionalism is not always shown online, which is
usually the first place work contacts will see you.
For these reasons, you should always consider a professional headshot
instead of a selfie because you’ll look professional and will, therefore, be
treated as such. It is an investment that is definitely worth it because it
will prove that you take yourself and your work seriously. A professional
company will want to interview and hire candidates that are serious about their
careers and seeing a professional headshot on your resume or online profile
will help prove that you are.
Many people do not take the time or invest in taking professional headshots, which can work to your advantage because you will stand out from the
crowd. Recruiters and employers will eliminate candidates whose portfolios
contain poor quality photos, so you’ll be ahead of everyone by having a photo
that is not only high resolution but visually appealing as well. This will make
you stand out for the right reasons so you’ll be at the top of the list when a
new position opens up.
Today’s market is highly competitive and you need to do things that set
you apart from the thousands of other professionals looking to succeed and
network in our fast paced and digital world. Resumes are very important but
headshots are equally important, which is why a professional one is your best
chance at making a positive first impression that employers and recruiters will
remember. Your headshot is, in many ways, a reflection of you, your work ethic
and career, so make sure you get it right.
