Tips and tricks

Tips and tricks for perfect application photos!

1. Do I need an application photo?

Application photos are not mandatory, but a perfect application photo can be crucial. Swiss personnel departments receive between 100 and 250 applications for an advertised position. A quick pre-selection takes place by means of picture impression. Therefore, show yourself from your best side!



2. How do I prepare for the photo shoot?

Think about your appearance before the photo shoot. Which clothes suit me and the respective position? What about hairstyle, beard growth, make-up, glasses? Ask yourself these questions in advance. Get on the way to the shooting in good time, avoid sweat, stress and too little sleep. A picture is worth a thousand words.


3. How should I dress?

Avoid overdressed or unkempt clothing. Choose your clothes to match the job you are applying for. Pay attention to color choices. Subtle, flashy or dark clothing will have a different effect. Seek advice on this from professionals. On hot days, be sure to have a spare set of clothes. Better safe than sorry.



4. What do I have to consider regarding make-up, hairstyle and beard?

It is your decision how you want to present yourself, but it must be well-groomed! Show yourself from your best side. Do a check in front of the mirror or talk to someone you trust. Think about your beard, make-up, jewelry and your décolleté. We can also touch up any blemishes or pimples.
