Transcript of Creating your video CV

Creating your video CV
Tips to create a professional video CV
Start by mentioning your name (first and last).

Discuss why you would be a good employee and what you can do for the company that hires you.

Thank the viewer for considering you for employment.

Don't mix your personal life with your professional one.

Don't be afraid to be creative.

Don't expect your video CV to replace your traditional CV. Not all employers are interested.
What is a video CV?
It is a short video created by a candidate for employment that describes the individual's skills and qualifications.

It is used to supplement a traditional CV.
2. What I can do
How to promote your video CV
Include a link to your video CV in your paper/online CV.

Use Youtube or specific websites. http://mi-curriculum-vitae.com/ or https://www.videocvon.com/

You can prove your knowledge of languages.

You are showing that you know how to use digital technology.

It is a sample of your creativity.

It offers more information than a simple CV.

Personal details: name and surname, age and place where you live

- Degrees and names of universities, colleges, or professional programs
- Additional diplomas or certificates.

Work experience

Personality: strengths and weaknesses, likes, etc.

Dress professionally in business attire, just as if you were going to an in-person interview.

Keep it short: one - three minutes.

Look at the camera, not at the desk or table below you.

Don't speak too fast.

Make sure there isn't any background noise and that the wall behind you isn't too busy.

Practice what you're going to say ahead of time.
