Default Do you use a selfie photo in your CV ?

Is this the trend now?

I am receiving quite a lot of CVs with a selfie photo rather than a passport photo these days.

Do you do it too ?

This is the type of **** Singaporeans do. Then they complain that companies hire foreigners. hais. Not sure what to say anymore. Every time I take in a Singaporean, I pray for the sake of our country that he is a good employee, but knn always prove me wrong. Maybe its just me, Im unlucky, maybe the better ones are out there somewhere.

You are not unlucky, you are just stupid. If you do your job well as a hirer, you should be getting the right staffs.

I know what you mean. I tend to do that too instinctively.

Some of the selfies are not even properly taken. In one of the pictures, I can see the applicant's messy bedroom. It is bad enough that the CV was not well crafted...

One sent in her CV but her Google profile photo shows her shirtless husband kissing her pregnant tummy. *Sigh*
