Or take your own
If you decide to take a selfie or ask a friend to help, there are plenty of things you can do to get the best result.
Make sure your face takes up at least 60% of the frame. Crop the picture from the top of your shoulder to just above your head so that your face fills the frame.
Choose the right expression. You want to appear warm and friendly. Are you naturally a smiler? Then beam away! It’s all about being approachable and showing people who you really are. Don’t forget to smile with your eyes.
Wear what you’d wear to work. If you don’t wear a suit to work, then don't wear one in your profile picture. Wear clothes that match the level of dressiness at your office and bear in mind that solid colours tend to look best on camera.
Choose a background that isn’t distracting. You want to be the focal point of your picture, so keep the background simple.
