A video resume follows many of the same principles as regular sample resumes - it has to make a good first impression in the shortest time possible and it has to stand out with regard to style as well as content. The first ten seconds of the video resume corresponds to the look and layout of your resume sample - if you fail to grab the viewer or reader‘s attention at that first instant, the rest of the resume doesn‘t get watched, or read as in the written resume scenario.
Video resumes can take several different forms - you can make a CD or a DVD out of it by filming it yourself and then sending it to prospective employers the same way as you would a traditional resume. On the other hand you could create a video resume website for the payment of a modest hosting fee. There are also web based employment services who will host the video resume for you and ensure that it is passed on to appropriate prospective employees. Some website let you insert a YouTube video onto the online resume - or a career related video or a demo reel or similar. Many of these also offer tips, advice and DIY instructions on creating your own video resume templates. You could also, in the alternative post your video resume on YouTube where it can be viewed by anyone.
Resume writing services have matured over the years and been sliced in two different categories. The first category of resume composing services provides revision and edition of resumes and the second one provide a professionally written resume. In the former type of service the candidate send the resume, via mail, fax or email it online, to the writing company and they revise it for grammar or other mistakes, they then rectify it and send back to the candidate. Such services exist simple to recheck the resume and edit the mistakes and do nothing more than that.
Price Wars- As with any product or service, it‘s tempting to choose the least expensive one. On the other hand, it‘s not uncommon to believe that the highest priced service is the best; after all, they must be good in order to command thousand dollar fees, right? Wrong. While the price of the resume and limitations of your budget are important considerations, you don‘t always get what you pay for.
Of equal importance is the overall appearance of your resume. The first thing any potential employer, or personnel manager, evaluating your resume will notice is it‘s appearance. There are a number of things you can do to improve on the overall appearance of your resume. Using a higher quality of paper to print your resume on is easily the simplest thing you can do if you are sending a potential employer a printed copy of your resume. Pick out a nice looking, more expensive grade of paper. The next thing to consider is the quality of the content in the resume. It‘s very important that you make sure the writing on your resume looks good so be sure to use a clear and easy to read font.
So, let‘s take a moment here to talk about Key words specifically. Key words can be found quiet easily. In fact, when you look at a job post, they are filled with keywords that pertain to the position, what is expected of you to fill this position and what the company is looking for in a potential candidate. Never repeat word for word what a job post lists as skills required for the position however, pick out certain words that can be used throughout your resume and particularly at the beginning in the Career Objective section.
