No. For a start, people won't judge me on my ethnicity if they can only look at my credentials, and not my skin tone. (I'm caucasian btw)

Secondly I have no idea what sort of picture I'd include. I wouldn't want to include some crappy passport job, because then I'd look terrible, and you want to present your best light on your resume. And if I went to get the best possible pictures of myself, my resume would start looking more like a portfolio. As I'm only likely to be applying for technical jobs, that's not necessary.

Unless your prospective employment involves your looks, like acting, modeling, etc., this is a really bad idea.

no way..
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/16/04 - 5:43:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, since i have no resume...
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/16/04 - 5:57:35 PM EST (GMT-5), but it's pink and scented to give it a little extra (btw, I am a brunette)

Just kidding...anyway, there was an art school that I was looking at when I was applying to colleges, and once they got to the part where they required I submitted a photo for my application, I threw it out.

I don't have a resume as of yet.

I am pretty sure it's illegal to show a picture with your resume.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 3/25/04 - 7:10:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, because I don't think it's appropriate. Unless they asked for it of course. then again, if they saw mine, they'd automatically hire me cuz i'm not white....<rolls eyes>

No, I've never thought of that. I have been corresponding with a TV show though, about possibly appearing on it, and when I write to them, I do include my photo.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/21/04 - 11:20:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I hate pictures of myself...I wouldn't want to show any to a possible future employer!

I'm not in the modelling business, so its none their business. Plus, if I put a picture on there I wouldn't be able to fit all my credentials on. Putting a pic on would be very unprofessional, I think. As well as just odd.

Don't want to work for a company that will hire based upon apperance

How ironic that terp is trying to correct people here. Hey terp, learn how to spell.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/9/04 - 3:29:10 AM EST (GMT-5)
no, ive never heard of anyone doing that for a normal resume before.. is that normal???
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 12/11/04 - 7:09:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
i thought it would be a plus to include a picture of my largest ferret to convey to the pet store my ability to take care of my pets.

17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/12/04 - 10:14:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. That's what an in-person interview is for. You're not supposed to submit a photo unless it is for a modeling job anyway.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 12/15/04 - 4:39:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah... for my pageants 0.o
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 12/15/04 - 4:57:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, although it's a common practice in Spain - I refused to do so.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/2/05 - 5:16:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/28/05 - 10:25:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, because I would actually hope to GET the job. Plus I get tired of seeing myself after a while.

I just recently updated my resume and I included a picture of me on it. I feel like it will help my resume stand out from others. I'm not excessively pretty nor am I completely unfortunate looking. It's just something that will set my resume apart from the next one.
8 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 4/21/14 - 3:12:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, that's not normal here.

but I had to fax a copy of my driver's license when I applied to my current job, so they knew what I looked like.
