You don't get second chances to make a first impression, so make sure you show yourself in your best possible light, especially when you are likely to often be "meeting" people for the first time online these days. A professionally taken headshot is vital!

Your headshot should be taken by a professional photographer. Keep in mind, that you want it to put you in the best light possible — literally. Lighting is key to having a good headshot and amateur headshots are pretty obvious.
The pose in your headshot is important as well. The trick to a great headshot is one that exudes your personality. You want the people looking at it to be able to discern the kind of person you are simply by taking a glance at the photo. The point is to make sure the photo shows who you are in “real life.”
Wear something that makes you feel awesome in your headshot and be sure the background (if you can see any at all) is simple and not too distracting. Remember, you want people to focus on your face and what you look like rather than on what you’re wearing or what might be going on behind you. This is why photographers usually choose to shoot headshots up against a wall, or some other solid background. The important thing is that you LOOK LIKE THE PERSON IN THE PICTURE and it shows WHO you are! We will keep shooting until the person in front of us and the person on the back of our camera look right!
