Headshots Followup

First, I want to thank Melissa Stewart and all the nice folks at the Noblesville Library for allowing me to host my first Headshots for the Unemployed event. Everyone at the library was very accommodating and made sure I had everything I needed as well as the great location and space. I had a great turnout and everyone I met was so nice.

If you are an "employer" that complains about a lack of quality applicants to choose from, those days are over. The recent economy has forced many capable and highly qualified people out of their jobs and now they are looking for you.

If you are one of the people I met that day, keep in touch and let me know when you have secured your next position.

Headshots for the Unemployed

I was thinking about reaching out to a friend that was looking for a job and offering to do a professional business portrait for them. You just know a prospective employer is going to check you out on Facebook or LinkedIn, plus I thought the photo would be a nice inclusion in their resume package. Well, before I could present my offer to them, they found a job! Then I thought, if it was a good idea for my friend, it will be a good idea for everybody else too.

On September 21st, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm I will be at the Noblesville Library, in the North Meeting Room, providing free professional business portraits to anyone that is unemployed and looking for work.

Looking for a job is a difficult business, especially with the pressures of providing for your family. I know you need encouragements, like a new suit and a great resume. Hopefully, these portraits can be another layer of confidence, or just a general assistance in helping someone land that next job.

Please pass this information on to anyone you know that might be able to benefit from this event. I am trying to reach as many people as I can. If you have any questions or would like to participate contact me at bill@billandersonphoto.com
