Is it a good idea to include a personal picture on a resume? When I view my resume on monster from an employers view…at the bottom there is a image space?…How would I do this, if you think its a good idea?
Not a good idea, unless you’re an entertainer (actor, dancer, model, etc.). Many hiring managers will immediately discard resumes that contain photos because of possible discrimination lawsuits (hiring candidates based on appearance rather than qualifications). With the above said, we have seen an up tick in video resumes. Video resumes are an exception to this and allow you to provide an alternate format to the traditional resume.
