Warriors Looking for Jobs- Video Resumes Get the Exposure You Need -FREE TIPS

by Sean A McAlister 4 replies


Hey Warriors,

I realize that most everyone in here is Making Millions of Dollars and
living at the beach :p...there are those who still need to work a full time job and may be out of employment or looking to change careers as they get their online business moving.

Not to mention this is proving to become a niche market that is in demand.

Here are some tips that you may want to employ. I implemented this test
about 2-3 months ago and have seen great results. I am a consultant and had to conduct research for the Human Resources department of a Recruiting firm to determine the effectiveness of Multi-Media Video Resumes.

Now, this method of the video resume was a break from the traditional face in front of the camera and was geared towards the Senior Level Offline Marketing Sector. This video directed Recruiters and hiring managers to a blog in which they could view an online CV.

Not only does this format get results and gain a competitive edge against other candidates it sets you apart.

-Create a Video
-Use Keyword Specifics in the Video Description.
-Create a Blog with your Resume (It's Free and Easy)
and add links to Any Portfolio You May Have and include it in your resume.
-Include you Blog Address on all the Resume's You send out
-Include your Blog Address in all your Sig Files on your email.
-Make sure that you use quotation marks for all online resumes
you upload to career sites so that thy can be queried by recruiters
-Include long tail keywords on your Blog Site.

I added this to YouTube with selected keywords specific to Integrated Marketing (IMC) and received over 900 views in one month with nothing more than applying for a few key jobs. I had to pull the video off of YouTube due to an overwhelming response.

My linkedin connections went from 48 to over 500 in less than 2 months.

I had received 12 job offers of which I interviewed with 3 and got the jobs in which I secured more work than I could handle.

For any of you who are looking to secure a new job or change careers or even increase your business here this is an example and hopefully helps spark idea's

Cheers Sean

    Positively brilliant, Sean!

    I've only just started experimenting with video
    (so I'm extremely jealous of your talent!), and
    never would have thought to create a video CV

    This would be a great service for someone to
    offer, as well - you know, for those of us who
    are a little less technically inclined :p

    Thanks for the idea, and congratulations on your
    success with it!

          Another important piece to this is....

          Most good positions and freelance opportunities are
          in the "Unpublished" job market which means networking
          is crucial as discussed on this forum as well as others.

          One more point, when adding "Quotation" marks
          around keyword specific skills, education or training you
          want to ensure that you do not go haywire and pollute the
          resume.

          Cheers
