Resume Headshot - Version 2.0

A while ago, I posted a thread about including a LinkedIn-style profile picture on my resume and got generally shit on pretty bad about it:


https://bravado.co/war-room/posts/resume-headshot-or-no-headshot


But here’s a follow up question: What if instead of including a small picture of myself on my resume… I included a full sized headshot of David Schwimmer except it would have my name on it instead of DS… as a hiring manager, how would you react to this?



As a hiring manager, how would you react to receiving a headshot of David Schwimmer?

I'd think that you were trying too hard to be quirky or accidentally inserted a file into your resume.

Seems like a Ross move...if he knew the hiring manager was A) a woman and B) attractive.

A dude applied to one of my jobs a few months ago with the classic Uncle Sam pointing picture on his resume that read, "I want YOU to hire me!"

Lol it didn't really do anything for me either way but it gave me a chuckle. I would've looked at his resume anyway, so I mean, it didn't really give him a leg up in that regard. Good candidate so I gave him an interview anyways.
