Here is a question that people often ask, “Is adding my photo to my Resume a good idea or bad idea” Adding a photo to a resume is still the convention in some countries. Anecdotally, adding a photo to your resume is not advised. You run the risk of creating the wrong impression by placing your picture on your resume. If you resume is filled with great resume power sentences and showcases your skills and experience, no photo will be needed to get that interview call. Quantitatively, adding a photo increases responses by 43% for good-looking men and decreases responses by 30% for attractive women. Your resume isn’t the place for a photo unless it’s requested.
