What Makes For a Good LinkedIn Headshot Photo

LinkedIn is the most widely used website for contacting and building your professional network. When you register on LinkedIn your profile consists of two important elements, the information for your work history and your LinkedIn headshot. However, more people see your picture than your actual resume because that is first thing the eye sees when scrolling through potential connections. This means that if you haven’t considered your picture as a vital piece to your LinkedIn profile than you haven’t accurately assessed the importance of one. With more than 225 million users in more than 200 countries and territories, it’s never been more important to your visibility to have a quality headshot for LinkedIn.
