Edit profile photo
You can edit your profile photo by clicking 'Update image' on your current profile picture.
If your account is created with Facebook, your default photo will be your Facebook profile photo. Editing your profile photo on Wantedly will not affect your Facebook profile photo.
Edit cover photo
You can edit your cover photo by clicking 'Update cover image' on your current cover photo.
Try to avoid uploading pixelated images. High-quality images leave a better impression on recruiters than low-quality ones!
