Should you have a photo on your resume?
The decision to include a photo on your resume is a personal one and depends on a few factors. In general, it is not necessary to include a photo on your resume, and many career experts advise against it. In some countries (and in some states within the USA), including a photo on a resume can even be against the rules, as it may unfairly influence the hiring decision based on factors such as age, race, gender, or appearance.
If you do decide to include a photo on your resume, it should be a professional-looking headshot, taken by a professional photographer. The photo should be a recent one, and you should be dressed appropriately for the job you are applying for. The photo should be clear, with a plain background and should show you in a positive light.
Ultimately, the most important aspect of your resume is the content, not the photo. Focus on making sure your resume is well-written, accurately reflects your skills, experience, and accomplishments, and is tailored to the job you are applying for.
