As a job search coach and executive resume writer, I’m always astounded at the ways job seekers can stand of landing the perfect position in their method. Nothing exemplifies this better than the LinkedIn picture. You might find putting your headshot on a public forum. If you have resorted to using any photograph that is available results can follow. Do not blame it market, your age, or lack of expertise! Failing to exhibit a professional image on the internet can put a damper. If your LinkedIn photo shows some of the following, companies can refrain from reaching out to you particularly if your target job requires a professional demeanor. However much you love cat, your dog, or tarantula does not have to see their faces. Keep Fido the way you would refrain from taking them, fearless from your life.

Bottom line: if you would not wear a specific outfit then avoids revealing the attire on LinkedIn. You may believe that endorsing or bashing a political figure on LinkedIn will promote your cause. But guess what. Your boss may be on the side of your political leanings. As the election showed all too well, at least half of the nation disagrees with you and consequently, may not think about hiring you. Drop the political messages from text and your photograph, and see what happens.
