Squinch and Smize

Some Friday Fun- here is a video about how to “smize” from its inventor Tyra Banks as she persuades Larry King to give it a try.

While its a bit of fun, @tyrabanks could not be more right – a photo can influence employers, and there is a science to getting your picture taken right. For more about the science of a profile picture (for your LinkedIn profile or similar), including the science behind the “squinch”, I’d recommend Kevan Lee’s post on The Research and Science behind Finding Your Best Profile Picture

Have a great weekend everyone!
