We are told not to put your photos on our CVs but guess what the first thing an employer or recruiter does? Yes, check us out on LinkedIn where they will see our profile photo! Having a professional photo is a small but vital part of the job hunting. We talk to portrait and dating photographer Lucy Williams about the key to great profile photos. Here, she takes us through ideas for what to wear, angles and poses to help us create great profile pics, whether we are doing them with the help or a friend or a professional photographer.
This is a long chatty one with lots of photos to illustrate her point so grab a cuppa and enjoy.
