To quote one of the all-time golf greats, Gary Player, I do see this happening all the time in my role as professional Headshot photographer.
While I do have the chance to shoot all year long clients from very diverse fields – smaller and medium-sized entreprises, CEOs, mommy + newborn, kids, teenagers, families, members of the committee of a golf club, etc… – I am often asked to shoot clients looking for a new work experience.
Whether they still are in the job, or have been unemployed for some time, all of my clients have one thing in common: they realized that in order to be seen on the market, they need to do everything possible to stand out from the crowd.
From working closely with several headhunters, I do know that recruiters’ decision to propose an interview is based equally on the CV and also on the candidate’s Headshot. If the application does not include any portrait picture, recruiters won’t hesitate to take it to social media to find out more about their potential hires.
Before recruiters will propose that first interview, they will have skimmed through LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and even Instagram feeds. The main question remains: Are you the perfect fit for the company and can they can imagine working together for a couple of years?
Landing that dream job is no luck, but the sum of many small steps to achieve success.
Putting all chances on your side to get noticed, means preparation, preparation, preparation.
And yes, from what I hear from my job-seeking clients, that perfect Headshot opens doors.
75% of my clients have been hired within 4 months after shooting their Headshot with me.
When will you step in front of my lens?
