Picture for resume
Do I place my photo in the resume?
The question is ambiguous. The personnel officers do not have a clear answer “yes” or “no”, therefore, each applicant decides for himself.
Most HR managers say that the photo is necessary because it allows you to create a complete picture of the applicant for the vacancy. Therefore, resumes with photos are more informative.
On the other hand, much depends on the jobs. For example, the number of positions (admin, Secretary-General, Secretary foster, and other) push the photo as a mandatory requirement. If looking for a job programmer, engineer, on the contrary, the issue with the photo and less relevant.
In addition, CV with photo stand out, attract attention, which increases the chances of being spotted. The results of a study conducted at one of the sites to find a job, confirm this: over 67% of employers allocate in the General flow of those applicants who have attached to their summary photo. Let's not forget that the main purpose of the CV is to interest the employer and to motivate him to communicate with you.
What should be the photo?
The applicant should remember that the photo is the first visual contact with the HR manager, so the photo must meet certain requirements.
First, the image must be of good quality. The face should be clearly visible. Facial expression - friendly, allowed smile.
Secondly, the style of clothes - business, modest. The best option is a photo like a passport (face and shoulders), but more “informal”, having.
In the third, a minimum of cosmetics and jewelry. In the photo, the applicant should look like it looks in life, without Photoshop.
If you want to emphasize your belonging to a profession, a photo taken at the workplace will do.
Where to post a photo?
There are two options: either attached as a separate file, but it's not very convenient for the HR Manager or photo to zoom in and place the summary at the beginning of the sheet (preferably in the upper right corner).
