Video CV - a new way of self-presentation

It is the 21st century, with each year we can see the following technical progress and development of technology. In the area of recruitment we can see new trends, approaches and implementation of new solutions. One of them is Video CV. We live in a world of images, so it is worth taking advantage of it. Video CV is not only a chance to leave the crowd and stand out, but it also saves time and costs associated with participation in the recruitment process.
 

Look at it from this page. When you don't like your employer after the first contact on video, you won't have to waste your valuable time and money on traveling to the interview, sometimes even to the other end of the country.

Video CV is a technological innovation.

If you send it to your employer, you have a good chance to stand out from the crowd and be remembered.

This method also has its limitations in presenting your candidacy. A video CV will not work in every industry, because not all of them are open to such extravagance. A good way to do this is to send a classic CV along with it.

Another limitation is the capacity of the video file because some employers' mailboxes have limitations on the volume of the accepted files. So remember to reduce it before sending.

A good way to do this is to use video storage sites such as YouTube and send a link to the video to your employer.

A common limitation of many candidates before recording such a cv video is ignorance of the technology. You can easily circumvent this, because today, in the era of smartphones, many cameras give the possibility of recording video files in quite decent quality.

 

Another challenge for many candidates is to find a good idea for a self-presentation. They do not know how such a CV should look like. Know that it can be recorded freely. The easiest way is to make a short film in which you talk about your experience, qualifications and interests. This information gives a good picture of your competences and at the same time shows your public speaking skills.
 

The second way is to ask a friend to interview you. Ask them to ask you questions about your career development on a vision.
 

Another way to do this is to paste the questions into your film at the company's board or to write them down on flipcharts and film them.
 

If you know how to record video well, have a fierce sense of direction, or apply to a very competitive industry where much more is required, you can make a reportage about yourself. In such a film you show different images from your life: yourself while performing everyday tasks, your achievements and your way of spending free time. If you are not afraid of multimedia and working with a webcam, this form of video CV is the most attractive and convincing for the viewer.
 

Look for example videos like Video CV and create your advertising spot. Act, test, have fun.
