September 14, 2018

What is it video CV / Resume?

A video resume is a fantastic technological way to show off your personality and soft skills to employers when you are looking for a job. Video resumes makes the candidates to go beyond traditional methods of applying for a job by making typically 60 seconds video, to make the best first impression to an employer.

Why to make a Video Resume?

A video resume lets the employer literally see you and hear your case (via your communication skills, appearance and personality) as the best candidate for the job – all before the interview takes place. It offers the chance to expand and show the skills you have to offer, not just to recite what’s already on your resume. In fact, your 60 second video resume can give you a better chance to get noticed by employers, as paper resumes are only looked by recruiters for up to six seconds before a decision is made.

You simply click to start recording using your webcam and mic. You’ll want to be sure you know exactly what you want to say, so be sure to practice first! And the benefit of DIY video is that you can re-record until you’ve got it perfect! When you’re happy with the final product you then save the video and send it to your prospective employer.
