Your friend Shay just emailed you the two photos above. He plans to use one of these photos as his
professional profile picture on LinkedIn, where he hopes to make career contacts.
Shay knows you’ve been developing your self and social awareness skill throughout this course. He asks
for your help choosing which photo will communicate the right message to potential employers. Using what
you’ve learned so far about self and social awareness, please provide your impressions of both images.
