Profile Pictures

With so much being online these days your profile picture is now the first impression for people who interact with you. Here are some tips on how to take and choose the perfect profile picture for your school accounts (Google, WebEx, etc.) that will help you make a great impression:
  • Pick a photo that best represents your professional image
  • Use a high-resolution image
  • Make sure your face takes up at least 60% of the frame
  • Be the only person in the picture (not pets, children or someone else next to you)
  • Have someone take the picture for you
  • Choose the right facial expression for you (it’s ok to look serious in your picture, but smiling, even with your mouth closed, can help make you look more approachable)
  • Avoid distracting backgrounds
  • Wear what you’d wear to work
  • Avoid using filters
