The cyberspace is like a Museum anything you put there is there forever. So you need to be careful what you upload on Facebook and other social networks. Like everything we’ve put on cyberspace you video resume will also be there to stay. Even though a video may seem like a sufficient representation of your talents and experience, it is not a substitute for a perfectly written resume and cover letter. If done well, however, it may be what lands you the job of your dreams. Here are five examples of creative, personalized video resumes from job seekers:
Kriselle Merabuena video it is short and to the point, it speaks of her skills and shows personality, she showcases her talents right up front. By combining still Artwork and music, she has produced a dynamic way to present himself to potential employers.
Maciej Chojnowski’s video gives character, personality and most importantly his skills. He leaves nothing to the imagination. Potential employees would see who they are hiring and what to expect. What makes this one of the best video resumes is that he uses simple techniques to keep the viewer hooked. The key to a good video is to keep it simple but interesting.
Be attentive to aesthetics and presentation. Saji Nair’s video is a great example of someone who uses her public speaking skills to her advantage. Her delivery is well-rehearsed without filler words (e.g. “um,” “so,” “like,” etc.), and it doesn’t appear as though she is fixated on a teleprompter. You should be familiar with your own strengths and professional background, so have it memorized (and this doesn’t mean “canned”)! Use natural language and leave some room for improvisation. Lastly, invest in quality. No shaky cameras, poor sound quality, or cheesy backdrops, please. Keep it sophisticated.
This video may be slightly controversial in its use of tongue-in-cheek jokes and monologue, but it is one of the most entertaining video resumes out there. Epstein solicits a few chuckles while keeping the material appropriate. He has fun with his presentation, showing he’s confident and willing to take risks. That said, a video like this would not be well received by every audience. The corporate world may be wary to hire someone who threatens not to wear pants to work. Epstein did get hired, though, and works at a start-up company in San Francisco where his imagination and wit are undoubtedly put to good use.
