Step 2: The Perfect Profile Pic

Here are 3 simple steps to taking the Perfect Profile Pic. Follow them, take your pic, upload it to your profile.

Once you’re done, share your Perfect Profile Pic on social media with the #GlobalYouth – don’t forget to tag us! 

1. Get Into Position

Start by selecting a plain coloured background (white is preferable). Stand in a relaxed stance with your shoulders back, and do not cross your arms – keep them by your sides. 

The bottom of the photo should be in line with your armpits or just below your shoulders. Make sure the top of the photo isn’t cutting your head off. 

2. Dress to Impress

Remember, the focus of the photo should be your face – your shirt shouldn’t distract the employer from that!

Choose a plain coloured t-shirt, or collared shirt if you want to be fancy.

Ensure your shirt has no bold print or writing. Avoid showing too much skin – your chest and shoulders should be completely covered.

NO SELFIES PLEASE 🙂 

3. Smile!

The easiest way to make a good impression is to smile. If you were meeting an employer for an interview, how would you present yourself? 

With a smile, of course. 

Do the same for your professional profile picture! Make sure that your confidence, friendliness, and passion can be felt through your photo. 

 

Step 3: Get Your Profile to 100%

Take what you’ve learnt in steps 1 and 2, and make sure that your online profile is 100% complete – ready for international employers to take a look at.
