Parts of A Resume

In some countries it is against the law to ask for a photograph.

You may also not be able to send one in an online application.

However, most recruiters (especially the ones working with customer service organizations) will ask for it sooner or later.

It is a good idea to scan your photograph and put it on the resume. The upper right hand corner is a good place for the same.

Some pointers:
  • Get a professional to shoot your photograph
  • Be well groomed
  • Be dressed appropriately
  • Smile
  • For some positions you may need a full length photograph.  I would advice take one and keep it.  Send it when required.  This way the small size (usually passport or thumbnails) & the full-length will be part of one set.
