Video Resume

There has been always a problem in a hard copy resumes where the potential employer cannot judge the applicant’s communication skills, general body dynamics, language proficiency, clarity of thinking and confidence level in expressing one’s views. Recently there is trend where the candidates make a video (video resume) in which they describe about themselves, their skills, qualifications and job expectation. The video is then uploaded to some video hosting services like YouTube. The employer can then just watch the video and screen the candidates according their requirements. This is much better method than just using the hardcopy resumes which are mute and dumb. This will not only be useful for the employers but also the candidates where they can express themselves in action than just few hundred words.

5 Avoid any specific Accent
6 Shoot the video in some professional background not in your kitchen or house where people going in and out the video.
7 Customize your video according to the job you are targeting.
8 Try to put some company specific information like recent success, profit figures in your video.
9 Please use grammatically correct English
