    In my current JobSearch I was updating my online C.V. (Resumé, to you Yanks) with an Employment Agency. On their website they also suggested I upload an I.D. Photo. As I had a couple of just that type of photos knocking around spare from my passport application, I decided to use that one.

    After a little while I went back to check out how it looked, and the horrible truth dawned on me... I had accidentally missed clicking on "I.D. Photo.jpg" & clicked on "In The Woods.jpg". I think you can well imagine what that photo was like, but it's one of those I use in my Adult Friend Finder Profile.

    You've never seen my fingers move so past to remove & replace it.

    Oh wow, though I suppose it may have been appropriate for some professions ;)

    I do use folders. It was just that the scan I made was only meant to be a very temporary file on my own drive, so I saved it temporarily in the 'My Pics\Personal' folder, after I had been doing a search to see if I already had a copy of the file saved.

    I've had a few close calls myself. ALWAYS keep in a separate folder from the start.

    Argh, I bet that wont get passed around the Employment Agency then. I think you can expect a call asking "Exactly what sort of job are you looking for Mr Pineman? We currently have a rubber truncheon manufacturer who are interested in hiring you as a model for their new line in truncheons. The only concern is that if anyone gets hit with a truncheon with those dimensions someone is going to get seriously hurt!!!"

    One reason I'm against photos on CV/resumes.

    In the States, it's illegal to require one aside from modeling/acting.

    That said, my résumé does have a headshot.
    And I did just double check it.

    It's not a requirement, as such. Just when filling in your profile with an online agency, they suggest adding a portrait photo.
