Your Coople profile picture is the first thing hiring companies will see when reviewing your application. A professional photo of yourself will increase your chances of being hired. 

How to upload a photo

  1. Open the Coople Jobs App.

  2. Tap on the profile icon at the bottom right to open your profile.

  3. Tap on the camera icon.

  4. Upload a cover portrait photo.

We recommend choosing an authentic and professional photo as your main picture. Afterwards, it’s a good idea to upload additional photos that tell your professional story. For example, chefs can upload a picture with their uniform, couriers might pose with their bikes, and bartenders can show their cocktail making skills.

Tips to take great profile photos 

  • Be the only person in the picture — companies only want to see who they’re about to hire. 

  • Pose in front of a neutral background like a white wall, or choose a setting that describes the work you do.

  • Choose the right clothes. There’s nothing wrong with wearing casual clothes, just make sure you look professional. 

  • Avoid wearing objects like hats or sunglasses. 

  • Avoid using filters.

  • Avoid selfies.

And that’s it! You can learn more about how to take great professional photos without a budget and professional photographers in this blogpost.
