Should I Add A Photo To My CV?

February 15, 2022

This is a question, I get asked a lot, and the answer is in a word…no. Unless you are applying for an acting, modelling or similar position whereby a picture is asked for, I see no reason why you should have a photo on your CV.

As a general rule of thumb, your appearance has no impact on your ability to be competent at your job or not. In your CV, you want to focus on your skills and attributes that make up the reason as to why you’d be the best candidate for the role you’re applying to, rather than how you look.

In all, avoid including too much personal information into your CV. This includes your sexual orientation, religious and political affiliation, age, full address, marital status, and physical characteristics. You don’t want to give the recruiter or employer any chance for judgement or bias.
