Including Photos On Your Resume?
There is an on-going debate as to whether or not you should include a photograph in a resume. Here is the thing: in the US, most employers do not like seeing photographs in resumes. In Europe though, it is still normal practice and some companies actually require it!
Generally, there is really nothing wrong if you want to have a picture of you displayed in your physical marketing tool. Specifically, if you are applying for a job position that requires physical attractiveness (e.g. model, actress/actor, product merchandiser or front desk personnel), then by all means show them what you got. If you are including a photo, here are some tips to take note of. It should be clear headshot. It should be a picture of you, and just you. Your face should be the focus, so no dark glasses. It should be a recent photograph too. Employers do not like meeting someone for interview who looks totally different from the image in their resume. So, have a new picture taken and discard that one you have been using from ten years ago. If you are wondering as to why some employers or companies do not require photographs in resumes, it is because they avoid being accused of discrimination. An image can reveal information about gender, race, age and even religion.
