Cover video solutions is a new service, especially for Filipino job seekers. As today’s digital age continue its fast pace, the job market industry found this innovative method of enhancing the approach to recruitment and changing its culture for further progress.
As many are still exploring; or trying out videos to substitute or support your resumes, let us encourage you by sharing the advantages it has for a job seeker.
This modernized hiring tool provides job seekers with more room to exercise their creative side. Creating a video resume is similar to making a short pitch. You are selling yourself to recruiters through recording and editing footage that contains whatever you want to say about yourself. You can also use graphics and photos for variety and a more concise style.
Cover videos also give the candidates the chance to make the recruiters get a peek of their personality, character, and attitude. Instead of just reading it on paper, the recruiter can see or hear candidates talk about their motivation and experiences. It’s almost like they are already interviewing you in-person. This also makes your cover video more credible than the traditional one.
Soft skills showcase
Soft skills are a person’s attribute that enables them to interact effectively with other people. Skills that are only visible through interpersonal communication, much like your confidence and the level of your communication skills. Plus through your videos, employers can have an idea as to how potent your soft skills are and your dynamics as a professional as they watch and hear you talk.
Serves as portfolio preview
The option to put photos, graphics, and clips on your video is another great advantage. Your video can now present your portfolio. For those jobs that require a portfolio, it is now easier for recruiters to see your body of work. As an alternative for links, they could just need to watch your video instead.
In addition, since your cover video is on your profile, it can be seen anywhere online if you choose to do so. Sharing your cover video can open more possibilities as it widens the scope of exposure online. There might be a chance that other recruiters outside of your video’s host site can see it, thus upping the chances of them reaching out and to grow your network through referrals and recommendations.
Time to refrain from printing multiple copies of your resume. Now that you got a cover video, there is no need for using the printer. As your work experience grows, you may now add it digitally for lesser use of resources. No need to carry pieces of paper with you on your interview.
A positive message that making a cover video conveys is your willingness to go the extra mile. You always have the choice to stick to paper, but you decided to work on something that can benefit your cause of accomplishing your goals. It’s quite simple, but it is saying something that your potential employers will value, especially in the long run.
Cover videos are the best-modernized tool in the job market right now because it offers candidates to not think about limitations. A more credible, flexible, and a more creative outlet to effectively sell themselves to get the jobs that they want.
