What were you doing your senior year of college?  What kinds of things were you thinking about?  Probably not updating your Linked-in profile or making sure your social media accounts were on point for future employers who were going to be snooping around!  That’s what today’s college seniors are thinking about!

College Life & The Future.

This past fall we played host to our good friend Jaymie!  She stayed with us during her last semester of college.  Congrats, Jaymie!  We can’t wait to see her walk and graduate in May.  I got to learn a lot about the lives of today’s college students.  Believe it or not, I’m OLD now!  Life has change

d so much since I went to school!  Classes are different, students are different, and the world in which they are entering is much different too!  Enter the concept of “College Senior Headshots!”  Jaymie mentioned that she might need some headshots before she started applying for jobs, but then I realized that in today’s world, it’s pretty much a MUST!  As professionals, we need to present ourselves as professional from the very moment we begin our careers!  For those younger than us, hopefully they start much earlier because as we’ve seen in the news, more and more employers are using social media to “research” potential employees.  Putting your best images forward, keeping your social media life clean is the best thing you can do to help yourself in a tight job market.

Our Session.

Your Future.

If you’re in the middle of your senior year of college or even just out of college, think about how important having a professional headshot could be.  It could be the difference between you and that other person landing that job!  It seems trivial, but putting a professional front across all of your social media platforms can really help during the job search process.  Check out some other headshot styles in my portfolio for ideas!
