How Video Resumes Can Help You Stand Out To Employers

July 28, 2021

With the technological shift in using more video based communications, there has been a new hiring trend where top candidates and job seekers create video versions of their resume in order to grab the attention of hiring managers. The purpose of a video resume is to change the monotony of the traditional way of applying for jobs. The video would serve as a supplement to the traditional resume similar to a cover letter.

A video resume allows you, the candidate, to be able to talk about your workforce experience, exhibit your personality, and differentiates you from the other candidates through initiative and creativity by making the video. This concept is still fairly new and underutilized by several job seekers due to either limitations to editing abilities or are completely unaware of the concept at all.
