For some, a picture could be worth a new job opportunity
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Looking for a job can be difficult, but finding one during a pandemic can be even harder.
One local photographer wants to help.
He took free head shots on July 22 for anyone looking for work because something as simple as a professional photo could put a job application one step ahead.
"It could really set you apart from the rest of the folks," said Sanjeev Singhal, CEO of CSRA Photography.
"If your picture is next to someone with a professional headshot, who is the employer more likely to look at?"
He said he would be doing 50 free headshots for people across the CSRA who needed them.
The average cost nationwide for a professional head shot normally runs anywhere from $100 to $200.
He’s bringing the service to job seekers free of charge.
"My goal is to just help as many people as we can get back to the work force," he said.
“The people have that great image of themselves forever, hopefully that will get them pumped up and started on their new journey,” said Singhal, who is making a difference with the click of a button.
