Hmm.. you are not linked to your linkedin

You don't need us to do that.

Do this for your profile picture

*Dress like you would for an interview. White dress shirt, blue/red/yellow tie, clean shaven, nice haircut, well fitting navy or charcoal suit. Subtle pinstripes or plain OK, but no other patterns

*Take your picture with a real camera, NOT a cellphone camera. This is more important than you think. If you doubt me, look at what OKCupid found: men who take their pictures with a cellphone camera make substantially fewer matches.

*Get someone else to take your picture. Go where it's well lit (natural light is ideal, incadescent will do). Relax, sit up straight, and smile. Have them just keep mashing on the shutter until you've got 30 or so pictures..

*Take the best picture, crop it to chest height at the bottom (low enough to see that you're well dressed, but not so low as to prevent your face being the main focus). Use that.

Also when you decide how to dress, make sure you know your palette. Pick your suit/tie off that Palette. Personally I'm a winter palette (light skin, dark features) so I use a color combo picked off that palette.
This means if you're a winter palette like me, don't use a yellow tie. It'll look fugly. If you're an autumn palette don't use a bright blue tie, and so on.

I personally don't have pics on Linkedin. If I was into marketing or modelling sure, but in finance mehhh.
