The Importance of a Professional Headshot


Free Headshots Available at FLEX Annual Meeting—October 25

Your headshot is sometimes the only visual someone has of you. Do you have a professional headshot, or is your LinkedIn photo a blurry, off-centered selfie with objects in the background?

The FLEX Annual Meeting on Friday, October 25, will be your chance to get a headshot taken for free. Why do you need a professional headshot?

  • As mentioned above, sometimes your headshot is the only thing someone sees before choosing to meet with you. First impressions are important, and a bad headshot can keep you from even getting an interview from an employer. Not looking for a job? Headshots can make an impression on potential clients or colleagues, too.
  • Having a professional photo shows you care about your image and take it seriously, and can also help your personality shine.
  • A headshot puts a face to a name. This is important if you own your own business, or if you are simply looking to grab coffee with another professional.
  • There are times when your photo is needed by others—when you join a board of directors, write a guest post on a blog, or are asked to be featured in a publication.

FLEX Member Sydney Herdle, owner of Sydney Herdle Photography & Multimedia, will be taking headshots at the Annual Meeting. Don’t worry about getting too fancy—we just suggest keeping it simple and wearing a solid color.

The Annual Meeting on Friday, October 25, is at Karma Coffee Company (237 Seneca Street, Oil City). It starts at 5:30 p.m., and includes networking, drinks, food, trivia, a brief program, and an election of new officers for next year.
