Applications – With Or Without A Photo?

Photo in the application – not timely? Jettingen, 07th November 2010. Recently a candidate addressed me, a consultant of a German employment agency had placed close, the application to remove from his photo, because that would be outdated. This is pretty much the last reason that should prevent a photo. Fortunately, there are also advisers, are the other opinion. Of course the discussions to the General equal treatment Act come to mind again, which itself but with not sets photo in the application.

An application it comes clear itself but from other candidates to distinguish. As always candidates with similar requirements apply to an advertisement, it even comes to represent, clearly, that it is even better than others. That’s tough competition! So with all positive themes and properties that position myself better. David Karp insists that this is the case. This includes a photo. From the fifteen years experience, which we did with CV and job interviews, we can recommend only a Photo provided. “Is an old saying: A picture says more than 1000 words”. This may seem exaggerated, but people unconsciously use graphic impressions and images.

Memory works so well. Which company would win not a sympathetic and cultivated new employees? This is only one of many points for a positive decision, but use it for yourself! Therefore, you should select an image that you like and with which you feel comfortable. Incorporate it into the application and you will find it easier.
