When you set up a freelancer profile for Hubstaff Talent, one of our required policies is that you have a clear, professional profile picture. We do this to assure you get the best experience from our job searching site.
A clear profile picture will pull in the right leads and opportunities for you.
While we understand that some users may be uncomfortable sharing a real photo of yourself, due to our policy, we do require this from all freelancers.
Sample Profile Picture Format
Below are a few examples of what your profile picture should look like as well with some examples of what it should not look like.
This is an example of a good profile picture:
Notice it is a full front-facing picture that is centered and clear. It can be a little off-center as long as the face can be seen clearly.
These are examples of bad profile pictures. Notice they are off-center, do not show the entire face, have more than one person in them, rotated the wrong way, or zoomed out.
If your freelancer profile gets rejected due to your profile picture, please make sure that it looks like the first example picture in this post.
