You don’t want to have your photo showing you down at your local pub, or at the beach. Remember its all about showing your potential employer your professionalism.

Just a point here, be careful with what you post to your Social Media accounts, Potential employers will look, the last thing they want to see is you bagging out a previous employer.

4. Get you CV into shape
