Hello all! What a Thursday! Yesterday I attended the MA Conference for Women both as an attendee but also (and most importantly)to style women for their professional head shots. It’s all about that first impression, so I wanted to make sure that all the ladies looked picture perfect and ready to conquer their career aspirations. I got up at 5:30am, arrived at the convention center at 7am and was on my feet (really 4 inch heels) all day. I met so many amazing women – so impressed with the positive and uplifting energy. It was such a pleasure for me to converse with them and learn about their careers and passions.
If you have a LinkedIn profile (which you should!) make sure you have a photo uploaded as well. If you don’t, you are doing yourself a disservice. Your photo can make your resume stand out from all the others that may look similar. It’s also a window into who you are. And it’s for that reason that you want to make sure you look your very best in the picture. That’s why I jumped at the opportunity to do this – I work in corporate America and, more importantly, my role in human resources gives me a unique insight into what hiring managers are saying about candidates. So I know what looks good in the working world. A great picture that captures you at your best can make a difference.
A special shout out to the photographer I worked with, Nicole Connolly, owner of Photo Fabulous You. She is a true professional and has an eye for bringing out the best in her clients.
