Students will find some of the following items in the closet: suits, blazers, dress pants, professional skirts, heels, dress shoes, flats, belts, ties, scarves, jewelry, blouses, cardigans, and button-down shirts.
Professional headshots are provided by the Student Government headshot booth located on the Ground Level of the Career Connections Center. Times are listed below and are subject to change.

As you start to work on your profile, using a smartphone is completely acceptable for the resolution, and with the newer phones, having portrait mode (not mentioned in the article) works nicely for a headshot. The only thing I would say in contrast to the article above, is to not stand too close to your backdrop. If you can, put at least the same space between your camera and yourself as with you and your background, or even more distance from your background. That nice blur in the back makes the photo look professional.
*Remember – Lighting is Key! Not direct sunlight, but an indirect light will decrease the shadows in your photos, natural light is best.
