I hate pictures of myself, and I’ve never done the headshot thing. I guess I probably should have at some point; there are rare occasions when I’m asked for my picture and I don’t have much to offer.

But I love what Kim Whitman says in her blog about this. And one line was especially good:

We want to hire you, not be seduced by you. Yes, your headshot can be too sexy.

I’ve seen some headshots that look like that. I find them annoying.

Me? I think I should have one that makes me look thinner, younger, and beautiful. Now is that asking too much?

Um. Yeah. It is.

Never mind. I actually want one that really looks like me. Maybe someday …?
