What is a good profile photo to be used for Job Portals?

  • Eyes:
    Make eye contact with the viewer. Look in the direction of the camera, and focus beyond it. This will create an impression of immediacy.

  • Smile:
    A smile is important. Show a few teeth if that feels natural to you. Research has shown that smiles showing teeth convey a more likeable impression.

  • Dress:
    Dress professionally and simply in a current style. Avoid dazzling patterns. Keep the focus on you rather than your clothes.

  • Double chins:
    Double chins and sagging jaw lines can be camouflaged by moving the jaw forward while holding the face steady. .

  • Simple background:
    A blank wall is best, if possible. The goal is to have something that is not distracting.
