Video CVs – The Resume of the Future

Traditional paper CVs give employers information about a job seeker’s experience and credentials. However, they can be frustratingly silent about every other aspect. For example, they hardly show a candidate’s soft skills, personality, interest or their goals and beliefs. Therefore, many employers are looking for better ways of doing things.

Enter, Video CVs

In comparison to paper CVs lacking the showcase of soft skills and character, video CV show just that.
Not only this, but video CVs give employers the opportunity to see candidates first hand, meaning candidates should really use this to their advantage and show employers what they have to offer.

As well as this, video CVs allow candidates to try something new and get creative, which is a perfect place to start if they are starting in a new industry or switching roles. They can gain an insight into the new position and can determine early on whether it’s something they want to go into or avoid completely.

Finally, Video CVs remove the fear of the unknown for employers at the later stages of the recruitment process. For example, if an employer has already seen and chosen the candidate, they know what to expect and may have even decided to plan out what questions they are going to ask, how they are going to structure the interview and whether they need to probe deeper or just go with the flow.
