college graduate headshots

College graduates need headshots to help them search for a new job. When graduating college the first thing that happens is putting together a resume and searching for a job. The best way to stand out is to have a great updated professional headshot post-graduate. College graduates need to make sure their social media is pretty benign and all photos of college life and leisure are locked down from prospective employers


The best way to shine for a prospective employer is to have your LinkedIn Profile be up-to-date with a professional and clean-looking headshot. A photo of you at a concert or party cropped so the person is on the edge of the frame, will not work. The saying "dress for the job you want, not the job you have" is never more true when searching for a job after college. A professional headshot will help!

After college, we all want to veg out on the couch in sweatpants and a blanket but that is not the image that should be portrayed to companies.

When approaching your headshots for your LinkedIn Profile, make sure you have a couple of different outfit choices. Having different outfits at your headshot shoot will give you the opportunity to rotate the LinkedIn Photo. Different photos might speak differently to people searching for a new employee. These photos are going to build the professional image you are searching for.

Outfit Choices for college graduate headshots would comprise of a suit with a plain white shirt and a nice tie. Having a couple of ties will help change up the look, pretty quickly. There are 8 different types of ties you could use for your photo.




Once you decide on the type of accents for your headshot outfit, you then need to decide if you want a plain white background for the photo or gray background. Fun fact, if you choose white, you can change the color of the background in post-production.
College Graduates should really plan on investing a couple of hundred dollars in headshots to be able to post a nice profile photo and attach a photo to a resume. Attaching a photo puts a name to a face.

When typing a resume, you don't want to get overly wordy, but adding a link to your LinkedIn Profile can help. Also, get a professional email address. Scooter123 at Gmail is NOT a professional look, and might really run off prospective employers. Putting all the time into headshots only to have a watery resume, will surely be a wasted effort.
