You are going to get different reactions to this topic, but I personally, don’t like to see pictures, especially family pictures on resumes.
Why, you ask?
Most of the people we hire at The Death Star? I don’t want to see a picture. Have you looked around law school recently? Sitting in front of a computer all day doesn’t exactly do wonders for the physical appearance. I don’t want to have nightmares. The less I look at the people around here, the better.
And their families? That’s the last picture I want. I don’t want to know what your kids look like as I’m forcing you from an Admiral’s order to cancel your family vacation. I don’t want to know what your wife looks like as I’m telling you on Darth Vader’s orders to stay late on her birthday. I don’t want to know what your dog looks like as I’m forbidding you on the Emperor’s orders to go home and feed her even though you had no reason to think you’d be here all weekend and there’s no one with a key to your apartment who can go in and give her some food. I don’t want to know what you look like in casual clothes. I don’t want to know what you look like when you smile. No one smiles here. I haven’t seen a smile since I have been here. I don’t want to see it in a picture.
Pictures make it too hard for me.
Happy Friday Everyone!
