Should I include a photo of myself in my resume?

I was recently asked by a client if he should include a photo of himself in his resume. Now unless you're going for a job as a model or entertainer, putting a photo on your resume is very unprofessional and does nothing to support your application for employment!

There really is no point in doing it. Not only can inhibit your chances of obtaining suitable sustainable employment, but it is also a waste of space and what if they don't like what you look like? Well then they will be pre-judging you before they have even met you.

At least when it comes to interview stage, if they for some reason don't like the look of you, well then at least they can get to know you and what you bring to their company and it might even soften their opinion of you and they will look past your looks! (pun intended).
