How to Make a Video Resume: Quick Tips
Write a short script for your video CV. Say who you are, what you do, and why you would be a great hire. Focus on your achievements rather than responsibilities.
It doesn’t need to include all your career accomplishments, because it is an add-on to your current resume. Wrap up professionally. Be succinct and keep it under a minute. Read our blog for more information on what to say in your video CV.
Now you can start creating your video resume. Making the first demo with the video resume builder will allow you to see yourself so you can spot any mistakes you make. After you record the trial video with the visual resume app C-Me you can watch it and review it. How do you sound? Do you like how it looks? Write down any errors you spot.
You can watch other video CV samples for inspiration and create new copies with the video CV maker. If it is the first time you’re working with the C-Me app then you may need a few attempts before you get the video you like. That’s fine because you’re free to experiment making your own video CV examples.
More tips for you after viewing the video resume examples
Once you have created your script follow the tips below to ensure a high quality recording:
- Background – A white or coloured wall provides a great background. Avoid windows and unnecessary objects in view. Recording during the day is best, but avoid direct sunlight. Minimise any background noise.
- Clothing – Dress as you would for a face to face interview. Check your clothing works against the background.
- Camera – Record head & shoulders, waist up, or go for the weather reader look (standing to one side). For close-ups have the camera set at your hairline, angled slightly down towards your eyes (avoids the nostrils). Turn off other apps using the camera before recording (like zoom).
- Smile – Body language is important throughout. It’s good to smile at the start and end.
- Pace – Take a few deep breaths before you start. It helps get the pace right.
- Feedback – Don’t expect it to be perfect the first time. Practice. Feedback from family and friends can really help.
Now you’re ready to bring your experience to life following the video resume samples available in the C-Me app.
