How a Video Resume Can Help

May 21, 2010

It’s important to keep in mind that a video resume isn’t going to get you a job. However, if can assist you in marketing yourself to prospective employers – if it’s done right. Done poorly, it can, at best, hinder your chances of getting an interview. At worst, it can knock you out of contention and embarrass you. That’s what happened to one student who sent a video showing himself lifting weights, serving tennis balls, and ballroom dancing. It made the rounds on the Internet and didn’t impress, to say the least, any prospective employers.

Tips to Help You Prepare a Professional Video Resume:

  • Dress professionally in business attire, just as if you were going to an in-person interview.
  • Keep your video resume short: one – three minutes.
  • Look at the camera not at the desk or table below you.
  • Don’t speak too fast.
  • Make sure there isn’t any background noise and that the wall behind you isn’t too busy.
  • Practice what you’re going to say ahead of time.
  • Start by mentioning your name (first and last).
  • Focus on your professional endeavors, not your personal ones.
  • Discuss why you would be a good employee and what you can do for the company that hires you.
  • Thank the viewer for considering you for employment.
