What is a video resume?
How can you stand out? Make a video resume.
Times are changing, and video resumes are starting to gain some traction in the resume industry. Video resumes are a great option for out-of-town candidates, those who have unique skills or products to showcase, and others who want to show, instead of tell, what they do well.
How can you create a video resume? Anyone with a video camera or web cam can create a video resume fairly easily. Basically it involves producing a 1-5 minute spot highlighting your skill set. For a video resume, if you can detail some actual examples of previous on-the-job successes and emphasize qualities that fit employers’ needs, that is ideal. Also, if you have footage of yourself performing a job that is particularly visual, such as leading a seminar, conducting a meeting or even being presented an award, consider adding it.
