How to build the perfect video resume script
What you should include in your video resume:
• Introduce yourself and tell your viewers why you feel you are the right person for the job
• Highlight relevant skill sets and their applicability to the job you’re applying for
• Mention what drives you, keeps you motivated and what you expect from this job
• Your contact details
• Thank the viewer for investing time and for considering you for employment
Preparation: Create an outline of the story you want to tell. Ready your webcam and practice looking straight into the camera with the right posture.
Research: Read about the company you’re applying to. Gain some knowledge of the industry and how it works. Check out their competitors and learn how they are different.
The optimal length of a video resume is 90 seconds (a minute and a half)
Don't make the video too long. You don't have to fill in your entire work history – just add the relevant stuff.
Remember, recruiters have limited time on their hand, and they will lose interest the moment you mention any non-relevant information. Keep it short, simple and crisp.
