So I am an aspiring web developer currently in the market for a job and I am putting together a WordPress site essentially as a homepage for my "professional services". I already have a portfolio (including slideshow), blog, and resume page but I also wanted to add a "Bio" page.
I have written by bio but am curious as to how much information I should reveal since potential employers will be my main visitors while I'm searching for a job (I will include the URL to this site on my resume / cover letter). I want to add some personal touches and maybe some photos of me from my young life but am not completely sure whether these things will help or hurt me while looking for a job.
Obviously I'm not going to include college photos of me partying, etc but what about a childhood photo of me playing on the beach or something similar. Just by identifying my age and gender from the bio page will I be hurting my chances of getting hired? Or will the bio help humanize me?
Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
