Step 1: Professional Headshot. Step 2: Your Dream Job.
Updated: Mar 24
Your LinkedIn photo is what reminds users that behind each profile on the platform is a real, living and breathing professional. College students and new graduates happen to be one of the fastest growing demographic on LinkedIn. It makes sense because students now know that they need to be active on LinkedIn to create an impressive digital presence and to find internships and first jobs.
Your headshot is one of the most important elements of your LinkedIn profile. A good first impression encourages the viewer to read the rest of your profile. By simply having a profile picture, your profile is 14 times more likely to be clicked on by an employer!
In order to create the best first impression, you should consider hiring a professional photographer for your headshot. Having a quality professional profile picture can open the doors for networking, employment and even improve connections. Filters are great for making you look super cool in that Instagram shot of you on the beach. Linkedin? Not so much. Keep it professional.
With more than 330 million users worldwide, LinkedIn is the largest business networking platform. When you apply for a job, you would not hand in a CV that contains spelling errors and other mistakes. You should place the same amount of importance on your profile photo. Remember, when you're first "meeting" someone online, it's these little things that matter most.
