Job Hunting? Here Are 3 Benefits of Having Professional Headshots


Whether you are handing our resumes or applying for jobs on Linkedin, a professional corporate headshot is sure to boost your applications. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you dream to do – having professional headshots will help you get there.

Here are 3 benefits of having professional headshots:

Reflection of Your Personal Brand

Your professional headshots are a reflection of your personal brand. This means they need to reflect your personality, style and the persona that you want to present in the professional sphere. Most job hunting is done online these days, on networking sites like LinkedIn or on job sites. Your photo is often the first impression that employers receive of you, and if you appear confident, professional and in-line with their company values, you are more likely to get the job. Your photo puts a face to your name and makes you more memorable. It is absolutely crucial that your photo sells who you are and encourages employers to find out more about you.

Shows Your Commitment to Professionalism

When you’re applying for jobs, you want prospective employers to see that you are committed to quality and professionalism. Having a great-quality professional headshot is a fantastic place to start. Your headshot will instil employers with a sense of confidence in your professional capabilities – they will see that you are confident, dedicated and committed to advancing your career and putting your best foot forward.

Another great thing about professional headshots is that they are a highly versatile investment. You can use the images on your social media profiles, your resume, your website or blog, your business cards and even marketing collateral like advertisements, magazine articles, online ads or brochures. This versatility means that the benefits and ROI that you will receive far outweigh the fee you pay to have them taken. If you really want to invest in your career, you need to invest in professional headshots.
