Create Video Resume And Share It

There are some things to keep in mind if you have never made a video resume before though. Firstly make sure you have a good idea of what you want to say in the video resume. You don’t have to write everything down as that makes you sound scripted but keep a list of points and talk about them freely.

You also have to make sure you keep the resume of the right length. Too long and you can lose the attention of the viewer and too short and it cannot give enough information. Two minutes is a good mark to aim at. Also make sure you dress appropriately. Imagine the video resume as a in person meeting with the employer and dress accordingly.

Also make sure you record your resume in a clean and clutter free environment as it makes it look more professional. Behind a desk is a good spot. As is in front of a wall. And make sure you check the video after you record it to catch any technical issues. It should be well lit and clear. And the sound should be free of any distortion. You can use a webcam or a mobile phone.

You can talk about your experience and your qualifications in the video resume. Also it’s a good idea to briefly talk about why someone should hire you. Think of it like an elevator pitch and create content for it accordingly. You can always customize it for specific positions and talk about why you would be a good fit for that company.

Once your video resume is up, getting it out to the right audience is critical. There are many ways you can do that. You can sign up on a video resume specialist website like Jobma. You can also share it across social media. Social media increases visibility of your resume drastically so it is always recommended to do that.
