Your LinkedIn Profile Matters

LisaJacobsonHead#3pxI recently read 2 research studies about LinkedIn profile photos. Here’s what I learned: 1. Recruiters and hiring managers spend as much time looking at your profile photo as they do reading your summary statement. 2. If your photo relates friendliness and likability, that positive impression can last for months. People keep that “First Impression” photo locked in their minds. It’s hard to undo. With this knowledge, I recently set out to find a headshot photographer trained in non-verbal communication and facial expression. I found Jason Ludwig of He created my new headshot. The goal was to convey approachability and confidence. I think he nailed it. Thank you Jason Ludwig. I love promoting people who are excellent at what they do!
