Really! You’re profile photo is your literally the first impression people have of you and a selfies just isn’t going to cut it anymore. A selfies makes the wrong first impression and tell people you don’t really care all that much whether you get that great new job or awesome date. Worse it might tell them that you don’t even have any friends that you can get to shoot a few snaps of you …even if it’s on a mobile phone. The bottom line is selfies were fine a few years ago, but not any more.
Selfies for LinkedIn / Business Profiles
This is especially true for business platforms like LinkedIn. While LinkedIn does not officially ban selfies, they expect that you would know better and only use more professional photos for your online profile. LinkedIn only allows one main profile photo that is front and center of your profile. This is where you want to make teh right first impression to potential hiring managers and recruiters. There are other places within your profile to add additional media but we would not recommend adding selfies even there.
