Make your LinkedIn profile pop with a professional headshot
Is a professional photograph strictly necessary? Not at all, and most people are fine with using a clearly focused headshot taken on their mobile device. Just never use a selfie, or crop a photo with a distracting background. Your profile headshot creates an all important first impression of your professionalism, so chose it with care.
That said, there are instances where having a professional take your photo can make a huge difference. I recommend talking to Nathaniel Welch, a New York City-based photographer whose portfolio is pretty impressive.
