But first, let me take a selfie

Time to invest in a company selfie stick!

While June 21st is National Selfie Day, and CPIBN takes selfies VERY seriously, your selfie LinkedIn profile picture may be the reason you’re not getting any calls back for your submitted job applications.

Some top tips and best practices in choosing a picture for your LinkedIn profile (while keeping in mind that a professional headshot is always best):

  1. Appear approachable and personable
  2. Be the focus of the picture; front and center
  3. Look the part
  4. Be current
  5. No Facebook worthy pictures
  6. NO selfies
  7. Skip the heavy Photoshop and filters
