There’s some evidence that says your headshot photograph might play the biggest role in determining whether you land a job.
Many people invest hours into creating the perfect LinkedIn profile. They tediously list every award they’ve won and scour the thesaurus looking to find the right verb to describe their work experience.
Yet, many of those same people spend little time thinking about their profile picture. Maybe it’s a cool candid photo someone took with a smartphone. Or maybe, it’s a professional head shot that was taken in a studio for another job. But either way, people often use what they have on-hand without laboring too much over the impact that photo might have.
