Recruiter’s LinkedIn Bad Photo Hall Fame

It’s really not fair. Argue all you want but the reality is you need a photo on your LinkedIn photo— and it needs to be clear, current, and professional.

The number of senior executives who do not have a photo – or do not have an appropriate photo – is shocking and inexcusable according to recruiter Jeff Hyman.

Jeff led a session of ExecuNet Master Class for ExecuNet VIPs on How to Headhunterize Your LinkedIn Profile. In that class, Jeff talked about the most common mistakes people make on their LinkedIn profiles. One of the easiest and most common mistakes is the photo. The photo matters, yet so many people treat it like a minor piece where “good enough” is sufficient. That’s the first mistake many people make on their LinkedIn profile.

If you don’t want to be disqualified before the game even starts, watch this excerpt from the master class Jeff led. In this excerpt, Jeff shared what you need to know about LinkedIn photos — and the mostly unknow place you can add another photo. Jeff also shared his Bad Photo Hall of Fame so you can see examples of what you simply do not want to do. Hopefully, you won’t see any that look familiar!
