One of the positives to come out of 2020 is the way that local communities have rallied to support each other during the global pandemic and its subsequent economic crisis. Brisbane based commercial photogrpaher, Mark Crocker, has decided to use his professional expertise and personal passion to help those who have unfortuanetly found themselves out of work in some of the toughest market conditions known to a generation. Mark will be opening his studio for a day on 11th December to take professional headshot photos of job seekers completely free of charge to help them with their job hunting efforts.
“In today’s world, first impressions are increasingly being made before people get the opportunity to meet face to face and if a job applicant is letting themselves down with an unprofessional profile picture – either on LinkedIn of attached to their resume, then all the hard effort of completing a job application can go to waste”, said Mr Crocker.
Brisbane based recruiter; Natasha Donaghy of Moss Recruitment agrees. “Having a professional looking headshot on your LinkedIn profile should be non-negotiable. The first place I go to is LinkedIn when doing my due diligence on a candidate” says Miss Donaghy. “To begin with, if there is no photo on a LinkedIn profile, I get concerned. But then, if there is a photo and it looks unprofessional, my first impression of that candidate will be tainted and even if they have the best resume in the world on paper, I will see it as a big risk to my own reputation to sit them in front of my clients. In short, you’ve got to look the part to get the part.”
Mark views his offer to job seekers as a small but tangible way that he can help people during these unprecented times. His studio will be open from 8am to 6pm Each Headshot session will take 30 minutes. He is open to taking bookings now.
