Guidelines for Setting Up an AWESOME Profile

Do’s & Donts For Profile Photos:


- Look Professional and Friendly:  Well-lit headshots of you smiling are great! Show potential employers how professional you are!

- Be Clearly Identifiable: You should be the only person in the photo so it’s clear that it’s you, which means a close-up and good quality photo with no one else but you.

- Show Your Whole Face: Your picture should show your whole face from the top of your head to the bottom of your chin. This also means avoid sunglasses, hats, or anything that obstructs your face.

- Use A Current Photo: Your photo should be current to show who you are and what you look like now.


- Don’t Use Unprofessional or Controversial pictures: Avoid pictures involving parties, alcohol, etc. Show yourself as a professional and worthy of being hired

- Avoid Filters: Filters on profile pictures can be distracting and won’t show the real you! Use the best photos that show the real you.


- If waiting to hear from your school/college then you can put that you aren’t exactly sure when or if you’re going back to college in the Fall or if you’re staying home for online courses. Ex: “TBD Based on School”

- Examples: “Weekdays, up to 30 hours/week.”; “ Flexible for part-time or full-time through November 15.”; “Mon/Wed 8:30a-12:00p, Tu/Th/Fri all day.”; “TBD- will know fall schedule after Sep 1”

Also, you can toggle between "active" and "unavailable" at the bottom of the page depending on if you’re looking for new jobs. "Hidden" will hide your profile completely from the Available Leaders page.
