They say a picture is worth a thousand words but what is your current professional headshot saying about you?
Consider your headshot like your logo, the first step in creating your personal brand. Although your personal brand may differ from selling a product or a service, it’s equally as important to invest in you. In fact, we’d argue that you should always come first. Whether you’re looking for a new job, networking like a boss and making those LinkedIn connections or your current headshot is from four years ago, the best place to start with your personal brand is with an updated photo.
LinkedIn recommends you change your profile picture every two years. “Keeping it current makes you look current,” JoAnne Funch of Marketing Dish says. And that includes making it your own. Yes to that blazer that makes you feel like the CEO and yes to your go-to bold lipstick. We want to see you – we did mention it’s your brand, right?
Even Forbes agrees, it’s time to schedule the shoot and make the investment. So now that we’ve had our pep talk about the importance of updating your headshot, we’re thrilled to share that YES! Columbus is hosting a headshot event on Saturday, Aug. 22, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Perfect timing if we do say so ourselves.
This year we are partnering with Penzone Salons + Spas, COhatch- The Pub and a YES community favorite, Autumn Theodore Photography to provide a professional headshot experience.
You will receive hair touch-ups by the Penzone Salon team, a professional headshot by Autumn Theodore and a YES! Columbus branded koozie. Additionally, Penzone Salon + Spas will be gifting each attendee with a single discount service card that can be used at any Columbus location.
Your support of the event in return helps YES! Columbus supports Dress for Success, whose mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
All details and registration can be found here.
YES is a community of women celebrating other women in moments of collaboration and success. We lift each other up by empowering others. We bring women together by championing the mission of Dress for Success Columbus.
