Just wondering whether anyone else has seen what seems to be a new trend? Showing a photo on your CV. I advertised for an events coordinator on Indeed and out of the 80 CVs I received, 5 of them included a photo at the top left. Based on the 1 page CV this just doesn't work as it takes up far too much space, but I'm not bothered about what they look like. If anything, it promotes unconscious bias either for or against based on your opinion of the person. So not a good idea!
As an aside, out of the 80 CVs, only 4 applicants included a cover letter and only 1 of them was personalised. The other 3 were copy / paste. The 1 letter that was personalised also had a 1 page CV which didn't include a photo. No guessing who's at the top of my interview list..!
