Application without photos end up in the boardrooms of leading companies sometimes on the stack We regret to inform you…Did you know, by the way, that the principal is used in several of the world’s largest executive-search firms in addition to the photo of the applicant, to occur with all photo series and video interviews? And that leading national HR consultants if necessary photograph their candidate at the first meeting? Unfortunately there are the counter-arguments still consultants at employment services, exactly these facts do not know or even ignore and peddling with remarks as a photo on your CV is no longer necessary, it would not so finally to appearances… Exactly here lies the conformist. Because it depends on the packaging! Always. Hear other arguments on the topic with Vera Want. Unattractive presented products remain on the shelves! Do you know. When application portfolio is no different.

Unless that candidate in a dried-out labour market without illustrated candidacy Have success. Frequently Dan Ariely has said that publicly. Or when it comes to less important gigs. The famous exceptions. Can therefore not well-off, to follow the arguments of some incorrigible Photo Pendant.
