NC Woman Gets Tons Of Attention After Changing Her LinkedIn Profile Picture During Pandemic

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A North Carolina mother is going viral on LinkedIn for her unfiltered look at work-life balance during the pandemic. Wake County mother of three Lauren Griffiths recently updated her profile picture. She exchanged the photo of herself in a pressed suit with a fresh haircut, to one in a pullover and damp hair after getting her kids ready for school.

In her post, she says she doesn’t feel like the same woman in the perfectly polished picture right now, and she wanted to show a more accurate version of herself in the age of remote work and virtual school.

She says, “Being genuine and vulnerable will get you a lot farther in your career than a glossy head shot.” Her post has garnered more than 600,000 reactions.

Our question of the night: has your attitude toward work changed because of the pandemic?
