The question of whether or not you should include a picture with your resume has a simple answer. You should not. What you look like should not influence a hiring manager's decision at all. It certainly is not standard to include a picture with a job application, but it is also not impossible for a particular employer to request one. Of course, it goes without saying that if a hiring manager requests for you to include a picture with your application, you should. We simply do not recommend doing so unless instructed to.
Keep in mind that the expectations for a resume are incredibly high. There is a standard format that most employers expect to see, so you must be completely familiar with it.
