Video Resume Tips
1. Dress appropriately. Just like attending a job interview, you need to wear decent corporate attire to make a positive impression.
2. Record your video resume in a quiet well-lit room. Choose a place and time where nothing can distract you during your recording.
3. Be brief and concise. Limit your video resume to no longer than two minutes. Remember that hiring managers have very limited time, so you have to capture their attention in the first few seconds of your video resume.
4. Add creativity to your video resume. Talking strictly about your work experiences and educational background can sound a bit boring. Arouse the interest of potential employers and hiring managers by sharing lessons you’ve learned or problems you’ve solved in the past.
5. End your video with a call-to-action. Ask the hiring manager to visit your LinkedIn profile or request a portfolio of previous work you’ve done. By doing this, you’re showing that you have more to offer than a resume.
6. Finally, don’t forget to smile. Leave a lasting impression to hiring managers by showing you are enthusiastic.
