Video Resume – What to Include and How Long?

HomeVideo Resumes - How Long and What to SayVideo Resume – What to Include and How Long?

Don’t apply to any job without a video resume!!! Is it obvious that we’re pretty big fans of video resumes?

The two most common questions regarding video resumes: 1) What should be said in a video resume? 2) How long should a video resume be?

According to the founder of CazVid, Yuvi Shmul, “With video resumes, less is more.”  Employers look at video resumes to get the first impression of a candidate.  The purpose of video resumes is not to recite every job, skill, and accomplishment, but to convey the candidates’ personality, communication skills, charisma, and level of enthusiasm.

“Video resumes should be up to 30 seconds” Yuvi adds. “In fact, video resumes are more of a video cover letter, video showcase of the candidate, or a job applicant video intro, if you will”  In these 30 seconds, the candidates should spend 10 seconds introducing their names,  10 seconds mentioning their general work experience, and 10 seconds explaining what type of work they are seeking. Video resumes should be a casual, yet professional, video introduction, that will prompt the employer’s desire to contact the candidate.
