Professional Headshots, and 5 Reasons Why You Need Them, Especially Working Remotely

If you’re working from home right now, you may think that you don’t need to update your professional headshots. After all, you’re not going into the office, so why would you need a new headshot photo?

But keeping your headshots updated is just as important while working remotely as it is when you’re working in the office. While you may spend a lot of time on Zoom meetings or emailing back and forth with coworkers, an updated headshot can still demonstrate your professionalism and help you make a good impression on everyone you interact with, whether in your company or outside.

Professional Headshots and How To Let People Know How Hard You Work

When working from home, it can be hard to show your dedication and diligence to your work. In most cases, your employer doesn’t see how much time and effort you put into your job when you’re not physically in the office. An updated headshot is a reminder that you take your job very seriously and subtly lets everyone know that you’re definitely not slacking off just because you’re working from home. By updating your headshot photos, you let everyone know that your job is important to you.

Professional Headshots Appear More Professional to New People

You’ve heard the saying “You only get one chance at a first impression,” and it’s definitely true. No matter how experienced or skilled you are, if you don’t appear professional when meeting a new coworker or someone outside your company, they may not think of you as qualified or capable.

A current professional headshot lets everyone you meet virtually know that you mean business and deserve to be taken seriously. Chances are the people you encounter in Zoom meetings and via email won’t have the opportunity to read your resume or peruse your LinkedIn profile, so your headshot can make it clear how experienced and professional you are in just a few seconds.

Have an image to use everywhere

Many professionals hesitate to update or even get headshot photos because they think that they won’t use them. But even if you’re working from home, a headshot can be super useful. It looks much more professional to have a high-quality headshot as your icon on your Zoom profile than just your initials, and your updated headshot can serve as the first thing people see when they visit your LinkedIn profile or even your bio on your company’s website. People want to put a face to a name, and a professional headshot allows them to do that while simultaneously creating a strong first impression.
