This article will walk you through the process of taking an amazing profile photo and getting it uploaded to your Sidekicker account!
Why do I need a profile photo?
Your profile photo is a crucial part of your profile. Not only does it show clients a bit of your personality, but it also gives them confidence that the person who shows up to work is the person they actually hired. Additionally, if you do an incredible job and the client wants to hire you again, having a profile picture makes it easier for them to recognise your profile in future.
Is there any criteria my profile photo needs to meet?
Your profile photo will need to meet a set of criteria to help you make a professional first impression with clients straight off the bat! Your photo also needs to be formatted correctly for it to be compatible with our platform.
Clear, not blurry
Cropped to square and right orientation (face-on, head-shot)
Plain or brick background
No facial piercings or visible tattoos
Neat hair and facial hair
Hospitality: Hair up or off shoulders
Hospitality: White button up shirt
Manual labour & warehousing: High-vis vest
Administration, promotions and/or events: Business casual attire
Once you've taken an amazing picture that meets the above criteria, you'll need to get it formatted correctly.
An easy way to get the formatting right is by using the Passport Photo Generator app, which is free and available for both IOS and android.
