Your profile picture tells a thousand words
They say a picture tells a thousand words and so does your profile picture on your Job Mail CV!
The first thing a recruiter will look at when they view your CV, is your profile picture. You might have impressive skills and experience listed in your CV, but if your profile picture conveys a bad impression of you, then recruiters will probably not even bother looking at the rest.
Here are a few tips regarding your profile picture that will ensure that yours portrays you as professional and a great candidate for any job…
1. Upload a picture. Having no picture conveys the message that you are either hiding something, or that you are perhaps lazy. Also make sure that you upload a recent picture of yourself.
Hope these tips will be of use to you. Not yet uploaded a profile picture to your Job Mail CV, or want to upload another, more appropriate one? Then click here, to make your CV more powerful and increase your chances of finding your ideal job soon…
