A Leicester based video production agency has recently pledged its support to those looking for work by offering free headshots at their city-based studio.
With the current ongoing uncertainty surrounding the economy, there has been a rise in redundancies and job losses across the country, meaning more people are currently searching for work.
“Every day, I log in to LinkedIn and other social media platforms and I see the same post repeated,” Incite Video’s Creative Director, Adam King, tells us.
“Currently there are a lot of people having their jobs and careers taken away from them and I wanted to be able to offer some support.
“It might only be a headshot, however, that portrait photo we take could help to enhance an individual’s online CV, or social media profile photo. It will enhance their application, guaranteed.”
According to recent statistics, a whopping 70% of employers screen their candidates on social media, with many employers admitting to looking at the photos that a candidate has posted.
That paired with the fact that more and more jobs are applied for online proves the need for anyone looking for work to have a professional online presence.
"We have all needed a little help and support in our lives, and we would like to think we can give back to the local community and help those currently looking for their next venture.”
