If you’ve recently been on the job hunt, Headshot Booker wants to help you land that prized position by setting you up with a free, professional headshot on Wednesday, July 22nd at Kenwood Towne Centre through a nationwide event called 10,000 Headshots.
The photography booking agency is coordinating the largest, single-day photo project of its kind, with plans to provide 10,000 unemployed Americans around the U.S. with a high-quality headshot to add to their resume and social media. According to LinkedIn, people who include headshots have many more engagements on the site than those who don’t, receiving 21 times more profile views and nine times more requests to connect.
“Unfortunately, many job seekers underestimate the value of a professional headshot, instead opting for a snapshot taken by a friend or even worse, a selfie,” says Headshot Booker co-founder, Peter Hurley. “The headshot has become the cornerstone of one’s digital brand identity and we want to empower people as they go through the process of procuring a new job and getting back into the workforce.”
10,000 Headshots will happen over the course of one day, in 50 states, with 200 Headshot Booker photographers participating in pop-up studios across the states. The only location in Ohio they're using is at the Kenwood Towne Centre, photographing the first 50 people who register in advance online (link listed below).
The headshots will also be taken with social distancing and other safety measures set up in place. The 10-minute sessions will be one-on-one and every photographer will be wearing a mask. Participants will receive their images in the mail through contactless photo delivery courtesy of SpotMyPhotos.
