Great, we’re talking about people just like you!
People who have avoided posting a profile photo on Linkedin, and there’s just an anonymous grey silhouette next to their profile.
Sorry folks, but you should ALWAYS include a professional photo of yourself on Linkedin.
If you’re a job seeker, you need to have a picture that hiring managers can see to get a feel for whether you are the right fit for their company.
A great photo also helps potential connections determine whether you’re the John Smith or Mary Jones they know or not. Without a great professional headshot, you could be missing out on opportunities to network or be hired!
A great Linkedin Photo needs to look like you, preferably the professional version of you, and on a really good day!
