One of the critical aspects of building your brand and establishing your identity is a good photograph. There can be no compromise on your profile photograph. It appears in several places on LinkedIn, in search results, in groups, in the inbox, on your public profile on the internet, and establishes an image and identity of you.

The following are the attributes that can enhance the LinkedIn profile picture:

  • make sure there is one that is of you
  • professional photograph and not a personal one
  • make it warm, friendly, and inviting
  • head and shoulder shot
  • like online dating – people are more likely to connect with people they see
