Headshots for Career Seekers

It amazes me how often people struggling to find a job or start a new career will find the perfect opportunity within weeks of posting a professional headshot on their LinkedIn profile. Headshots are more than just a picture of a person. They are an opportunity to bring out what cannot be described in words: your beautiful energy.

Pakzad Bijan of Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles was seeking to have a assistant to be trained and possibly take over some of his duties.  He received stacks of resumes full of content and information. During his busy days, he would sort the resumes into two piles: one for possibilities and the other for the garbage. Hundreds of resumes came in with content. Only one came in with a headshot on the front page. For days, Bijan would look at the face of that one candidate while sifting through the rest of the resumes.

Realizing how long it would take to read all the content inside all those resumes, he decided to call the now familiar face displayed in the only resume with a portrait.  That would be his first and last call…

A professional headshot from Art of Headshots will give you a distinct advantage in today’s challenging career market. A recent client was working as a VP of operations for a public trading company that moved its head office out of Vancouver BC. For months, she had been looking for a new position and had spent many dollars on recruiters. When the company moved, she became unemployed. Within three weeks of having her headshot done with us, she had posted a new profile on LinkedIn and was hired as president of a competing company.
