WEBINAR: The Elements Of A Winning LinkedIn Photo

What do people think when they see your photo on LinkedIn? Do you seem competent, likable, and influential in your industry? If you’re not certain how your professional photo is being perceived, you definitely don’t want to miss this event covering the exact characteristics that make a winning LinkedIn photo.

Research Unveils The Perfect Professional Headshot Photo

Co-founders Stephanie and Ben Peterson of PhotoFeeler.com— a free online photo testing tool— will be unveiling never-before-seen findings from their in-depth research, based on ratings of perceived competence, likability, and influence for several hundreds of professional headshot photos in the PhotoFeeler database.

Why Does A Photo Matter?

But why should you care so much about your professional photo, anyway? Fact is, recruiters can't help but make snap judgments based on little information— especially photos. Research shows that faces are processed deep in our subconscious, and opinions form so automatically that they're impossible to stop. The impression someone gathers from your photo in the first tenth of a second colors everything else they learn about you. And this is never truer than in an environment like LinkedIn, where browsers often see photos before anything else.

Changes You Can Make Today

The most exciting part about the precise tips that you’ll be learning is the focus on changes you can make immediately to improve your online impression. Whereas factors like age, gender, race, and even body type can certainly play a part in how people perceive us, this conversation has no interest in aspects of our photos that we can’t easily control. Rather, this event is all about being proactive—paying attention to photo characteristics like camera direction, facial expression, and even Photoshop edits.

Last week during my Office Hours on Youtube, a client asked about how to deal with a workplace bully. After spending many years in corporate HR, I flipped to the other side and became a career therapist. So, I've seen both sides of this situation in the workplace. In this video, I discuss why people struggle to deal with bullies and what you can do to change the situation instantly.
