What is a Video Resume?

Through this 1 minute video, you can better showcase your personality, and discuss your strengths that are relevant to your job. According to a study, 89% of recruiters would watch a resume if you submitted one to them.
How to prepare:
Landscape Orientation of your Camera
Ensure you are recording on a stable device that’s resting on a table and can film in landscape orientation
Dress code: Business casual or semi formal
Keep in mind that what you wear should reflect the field you want to go into! Forexample, if you want to go into a creative field, it’s probably ok to dress a bit more casual. Versus if you want to go into business or finance, it might be better to wear a button-up shirt or a blazer. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to us!
