Professional photo for your CV
Why should you include a photo in your CV? Although it sounds unfair, Hiring Managers are drawn to images. A biometric photograph in your Curriculum Vitae will definitely help you build your brand and make the recruiters remember you. Imagine that you are a professional recruiter and your daily job is to go through tens if not hundreds of CVs. Undoubtedly, your CV is going to possess unique entries, however, they may get a little blurry in the eyes of a recruiter who has seen lots of other unique CV entries.
A photograph in your CV will not only make your CV easier to remember but also will help the HR Managers picture you as a part of the team or it may even show some desirable personality traits, such as confidence.
Moreover, let's not forget that if you are applying for a job that requires direct contact with customer, looks might actually be important for the recruitment process.
CV photo tips
- Face the camera directly with full face in view
- Although it may depend on job you apply for, we recommend you the smart casual attire
- Faint smile is encouraged
- Try to look confident in the photo! Imagine yourself fulfilling your biggest dream
- Don't wear too much make-up or jewellery
CV photo size
Although there are no specific requirements as for CV photo size, we recommend the 35 x 45 mm size, which coincides with the European Union's standard official documents size. It is not going to be too big, but will still draw recruiter's attention.
CV writing tips
- Use professional terminology
- Order it chronologically
- In the Interests section, put your professional interests instead of hobbies
- Keep your CV to 2 pages long
- Give your CV document file a professional name
How to prepare yourself?
Distance from the camera
Take the photo from a distance of about 20 inches from your face. Ideally, the photo should be taken by another person.
Face in front of the camera
Place your face in front of the lens and keep a neutral expression on your face. Hold the camera at face height.
Just stand facing a light source such as an exposed window. Don't worry about the background.
