LinkedIn is one of the best resources for business professionals looking for a job. Did you know that having a photo on your LinkedIn profile gets you 36 more views than an average profile. Thats huge for a prospective job searcher!
Having a headshot that's clean and professional is an absolute must. It doesn't take long to do a headshot, I typically say around 30 minutes for one person in studio. If you are looking for something a little more out of the box, I'd say schedule an hour.
When shooting a headshot, you want to make sure you have a couple different outfit options. You don't know what you are going to love (or hate) when you get the pictures back.
Headshots have multiple uses. You can use it to put on LinkedIn, but you can also put a thumbnail on your resume so people remember who you are. After seeing 45 people for a job, you might start to forget what they look like. Having a photo on the resume is a great way to be remembered!!
