4-17-18, Before and After
Are social media profile pictures really that big of a deal? Do they really make a difference? Well, I'll let you be the judge of that. Let's take Dave here, for instance. Dave contacted me through LinkedIn looking to update his headshot. Take a look at his 'before As Eye See It' headshot. What do you think he does for a living? What's your overall first impression?
Now take a look at Dave's new As Eye See It professional headshot. Although he's obviously the same person, he almost looks like a completely different person. Don't you agree? Dave took the 'confidence and approachability' concepts and knocked them out of the park. Now, do you want to know Dave's occupation? He's a software engineer (with over 30 years of experience in this field). Which headshot do you think best represents him for new employment opportunities? No comparison, right?
Thank you, Dave, for allowing me to use your before and after images for illustrating the value of a great headshot. And, because my clients tend to become friends, I'd love to share some interesting information about Dave. For over 19 years, he has hosted foster dogs and literally saved them. He has shared some of his experiences with me. His stories are amazing and incredible. The compassion Dave has for these animals that would otherwise have no other chance is highly commendable. Don't be surprised if one day you pick up a book, turn it over and see his face looking back at you. See, you just never know in what capacity you'll need a great headshot!
