LinkedIn Profile Photo will get you seen
So you don’t think you need a LinkedIn Profile Photo?
Lots of my connections have gotten new jobs, updated their LinkedIn profile or received recommendations. However the only ones that LinkedIn included in this message is the ones with a LinkedIn Profile Picture.
Don’t spend a lot of money getting a profile picture taken. Brush your hair, stand in a well lit area and put a smile on your face. Make sure the camera is at least as good as an Iphone or Droid (Hi-Res) (approx 450×450 pixels and < 4MB).
Here are three reasons to have a LinkedIn Profile picture
#1 – When you are seen in the public, the connections that you do not see often may recognize you
#2 – Having a Social Media Profile Picture is considered just a little vulnerable. It shows others that you want to connect. Many people perceive that not having a picture is like hiding.
#3 – When LinkedIn sends out it’s member activity your activity will be included in the graphical message. A great way to be heard, seen and perceived as a professional.
