With today’s society being more technological and eco-friendly than ever before, we have turned more to LinkedIn for employment recruiting.

Do you think a company is going to choose someone who has a cropped picture of themselves from a social event or while on vacation; or someone with a professional headshot that is willing to take their job seriously.
