A video CV (or video resume / video job application) is a short video you make to introduce yourself to the hiring manager or recruiter. Applicant videos are rising in popularity as they allow to get a more dynamic sense of your personality than the written word consents. In fact, a video resume allows you to speak directly to your potential employer about what makes you uniquely qualified for the role. Usually companies do not look for the most well-written monologue or the highest production quality in applicants' videos. They look for personality, self-awareness, creativity, initiative, communication skills, and effort. Immerse yourself into the materials hereby presented and follow the instructions. Transforming your ideas into your first video CV will feel great!
