Prepare your video resume

First of all you need to have a video resume. Not a boring selfie, not something that is going to take forever to do. You need a free software program that easy to use and show cases you. There is a product out there that does all of this – FaceCruit.

Why do you need a video resume and how do you make a video resume ? This is a good question. A video can be an extension to your application which you can showcase and communicate you where a resume can not.  A unique URL can be added to your online resume.

How to attach your video resume to your application

Once you have your profile URL here are some tips below.

If you need to set up a hyperlink this is how you can. Click here to see how to set up a hyperlink.

You can add your caption to cover letters and resumes, or both. For example use a more descriptive and highlighted caption in your cover letter (Point 1 below) or just add the short caption (Point 2) on your resume.Example – Please view my video resume I have also included in my application. (We have added a YouTube clip) Or you can just use your Job Profile URL.
