Video Profiles – A Job Seeker’s Guide

What is a Video Profile?

What is a Video Profile? Take a few minutes to watch this sample.

Now, think like an employer. If you were looking to hire, would a Video Profile influence your selection of the applicants you’d like to interview? We think the answer is YES!

If you are job searching, a VIDEO PROFILE can be a powerful tool to help you stand out in the crowd. It is best used as an enhancement to a job application and not as a replacement of either a paper resume or any other traditional method of seeking employment. A Video Profile serves as the first contact between you and the employer and creates a strong first impression, showcasing your communication skills and personality.
