For the places that I am sending a physical copy of my resume, should I attach a headshot? I just think it is easier from a recruiting standpoint to consider the applicant when they can put a face on them...

    Yes. In fact, make the headshot your resume's background picture.

    Yes definitely. I've done it on several occasions, I usually attach a picture of Josh Duhamal though because I think that will give me a better shot with the ladies wanting to bring me in.

    Definitely not - this isn't a college application. You'd be the only one with a headshot, and people would probably find it a bit ridiculous. Google around - video resumes and the like do not have a strong history on Wall Street.

    Not a good idea, Bull. Remember the guy who made the video of himself lifting weights? A headshot isn't exactly the same thing, but it's in the ballpark.

    ok thanks...i guess it is a weird thing to do and I probably would laugh at it also
