Building Professional ‘First Impression' Online
Apr 18, 2016 • By danielwlowry •

What does your social media page say about you and does it work for you or against you? While the majority of individuals would like to believe that these sites are only for fun, it is important to note that potential employers have started looking at these before making a hiring decision. This is especially true in the case of LinkedIn because it is geared towards professionals who are already working and want to connect with customers and vendors or those looking to find a job through this avenue.

Resumes give the hiring committee a chance to understand your background and official experience as it is listed on a sheet of paper but it doesn't provide insight on who you are as a person. Part of the hiring process is to evaluate skill which is critical to the success of the position but the other part is determining whether the individual will work well in a team, on their own and as part of the organization. This is where understanding their social side is helpful and the media accounts make this possible, however, if you are not careful it can also hurt your chances.

Free LinkedIn background images are the ideal solution for creating a professional profile that has a clear and sharp picture that also gives viewers a little insight into what you enjoy in the environment around you. Another benefit is that it shows anyone who might be looking that you take pride in your social media presence which can be construed as a character trait that you will take pride in your work and everything else that you do.

The free LinkedIn background image makes it easy and affordable to download to your computer and upload to your account. You can switch out as often as you want in order to keep it interesting which can set you apart from others that have the same job title or similar industry aspirations. Take advantage of the vendor's applications and range of picture options spread across a variety of categories that will appeal to those who like keeping up with the seasons and holidays or the changing sport periods throughout the year. You can sign up for notifications to receive updates on new items coming from the vendor that can help you be more mobile or increase your online visibility through the latest and greatest in technology. Whether you have one social media account or five, it is ‘best practice' policy to have them all working together with the same image or the same quality of pictures from the right vendor.


First impressions used to occur at the initial interview meeting but now they can happen when the hiring personnel look you up online. This sets the tone of the interview and can even affect the questions they ask so why not make sure that you are prepared and have an image that is professional and unique at the same time. You don't have to pay for the advantage but it can certainly pay off for you in the present and future endeavors.

If you are looking for free LinkedIn background images, the author of this article recommends Background Image Pro.
