5 Video Resume Tips For Candidates And Recruiters

Hi This is Michael Neece the CEO of Interview Mastery.com the worlds most widely used interview program used by 56,000 candidates, hiring companies, and agency recruiters in 76 countries.

This post will give you 5 “VIDEO RESUME” tips so you create an awesome video resume.

TikTok recently started promoting video resumes as a way to apply to video job openings posted on TikTok. This is continues the wider use of video in the recruiting process.

Companies are beginning to request a video resume with the traditional resume document. This emerging trend will soon become the norm and affects both candidates and 3rd party recruiters.

Several years ago, companies began using video interviewing apps that record a candidate’s responses for 3-5 screening questions. This is just like a video version of a phone screen.

Now we see the emergence of video resumes.

But “video resumes” would more like “video cover letter”. Historically, the cover letter highlighted the position you are apply to, key parts of your talents, and closed with you expressing your interest. Video resumes are just like that.

During a video resume, the candidate highlights parts of their background, what makes them unique, then they express their interest in the job.

Here are 5 tips for making a professional video resume so you confidently communicate your experiences, uniqueness, and interest.

There are two different types of video resumes:

  • First type of video resume is general purpose. It highlights your experience for the types of positions you’re seeking.
  • Second type of video resume is job specific. It’s a short video highlighting two or three areas of experience related to a specific position where you’re applying.

Here are 5 tips to make your video resumes awesome:

  1. Length: Make your video resume 30 to 45 seconds in length. Remember you briefly highlighting a couple parts of your talents.
  2. Script:
    1. Write down the script (double-spaced) of what you want to say during your video resume. Write it out word-for-word or use a bulleted list of the points you want to say.
    2. b. Use a large font, like 14-to-16-point font, when you type out your script. Using a large font makes the script easier to see and read. Use Times New Roman or Arial font.

  3. 3. Key Points: Highlight only experiences that directly relate to the job you’re applying for. Also include one thing that make you memorable. This could be a hobby, personal accomplishment, or life event. Be professional. Be brief.
  4. Emphasis: Use bubble text on the video to visually reinforce key points you’re saying on video.
  5. Call-to-Action: Close your video with a “Call To Action”. Tell you viewers way you want them to do. In your call to action say something like:
    1. “Check out my LinkedIn profile to learn more and contact me via e-mail or text. I’m very excited to speak with you soon to discuss how I can contribute to your company.”
    2. Be certain to include your name, e-mail, phone and profile info at the end of your video.
