LinkedIn Headshot Profile: Cell Phone Selfie Or A Professional Headhsot? You Decide!

Before With LinkedIn Selfie To Professional Headshots On LinkedIn

The client above gave me permission to use her LinkedIn selfie to compare with the updated headshots that she got from me to use on LinkedIn and for other professional purposes. I hope you can figure out which is the cellphone selfie without struggling very much. YES, she has updated her profile from the cellphone selfie to one of the three professional headshots above.

It still amazes me how many people use cellphone selfie shots on their LinkedIn profile. That is 100% OK on Facebook, but LinkedIn is the professional side not the everyday social side like Facebook.

The selfie that still floors me the most is the person sitting in their car using a phone to take a selfie shot. I'm not sure why people think they look so good in their car. Oh, and my apologies if you are using the inside your car shot on your current LinkedIn profile.

Yes, I'd love to earn your business and provide you with a nicely shot and retouched image for your LinkedIn profile, but if you don't come to me, please at least find someone else that can provide a quality image far better than a cellphone selfie for your LinkedIn profile headshot. It will make a huge difference in the first impression your profile gives when others see it.
