5 Reasons Why You Need A New Professional Profile Portrait On LinkedIn

5 Reasons why you need a New professional Professional Profile Portrait on LinkedIn

A picture is worth a thousand words, and LinkedIn knows it. If you are looking for a job, a good profile portrait could be a determinant in company hiring.  However, even if you already have a job, a professional portrait is an essential investment for your personal branding. Even more, if you are an executive or a CEO. Donna Svei, the blogger on LinkedIn, strongly recommends a professional profile portrait: “If you’ve made it to the director level or above, or aspire to, then spring for a professional photo. You’re expected to represent your company like the executive you are. If you don’t present yourself well, recruiters and hiring managers might question your ability to represent their company.”

1) The importance of the first impact

It doesn’t matter if you use a tablet, a laptop or a smartphone: when a recruiter or a company search for someone on LinkedIn, a Profile Portrait appears immediately close to the name and the job. Being recognisable and visually attractive with a professional profile headshot can make the difference between getting a connection request and not.   

 2) Quality is a winning asset

A blurry, dark and low-quality photo is considered poorly by recruiters and has a destructive impact on your LinkedIn network. A professional profile headshot has the benefit of a high-quality resolution and makes a good impression.

 3) Many values, one picture

Reliability, self-confidence, motivation, accuracy and professionalism. All these values are communicated only with a corporate headshot provided by a photographic agency which listens to you and understands your needs.

 4) All professions you need for your objectives   

Cameras, lights and post-editing: a photographic agency and a professional team of experts and specialists in portraits have the skills and abilities to communicate the best version of you in front of your professional network.

 5) Advice for your self-promotion

A professional photographer can also provide you with some advice (see our article: “How to dress for a photoshoot”) to make your headshot memorable and give LinkedIn users the best impression about you.
