The importance of the photo that will show on your profile to get a job.
Today I think nobody doubts that employers use social networks to find potential candidates for a job. It also happens that employers check the social networks of people who are applying for a job to verify dice and see how it is that this person actually.
For this reason one has to be very careful with the photos you post on social networks. Obviously, as a precaution we could block access to social networks to third thing that allows us to Facebook but other times we do not agree, especially when we are in search of jobs since not seem strange to be in such networks.
LinkedIn is one of the most professional and social networks there is a common place where employers give a review of potential candidates.LinkedIn practically one has hung his resume or Resume in full.Consequently, the picture that one place there should be more carefully you choose.
But for this, we must take into account the target markets which we are targeting our job search. Some times the Industry sector to which we want to get is a fairly informal industry where a photo could look bad with formal dresses or suits and ties (that is the case of the marketing and advertising sector).
Different if we would apply for a more formal industry, perhaps the banking and legal and accounting services industries where formal dress is almost mandatory.
The photo detail is so crucial. Take good care of that detail, it is the first impression and so I recommend that resort to a professional photographer.
Do not abuse the digital retouching because the worst that can happen is that you do not look like your picture. That could cause you to immediately reject the personal interview. Like everything in life no end is good.
