How to Choose the Best Video Resume Website

Posted by jobma12 on July 24th, 2013

Before signing up on a video resume website, job seekers often find it helpful to look at a few different website options. Each website has different perks, as well as different costs associated with their services. By researching these differences and prioritizing their different features, you can choose the website that will be most beneficial to you and your job search. Common differences among these websites are often found within the following services: the job seeker blog, client support, mobile application, database of posted jobs, sharing capability, and cost. Most websites allow one free video resume upload but charge job seekers to have multiple video resumes in their profile. Others provide free upload of multiple video resumes but are often lacking in their client support or blog quality. Consider these and other differences you find before selecting a video resume website. To get started, organize your priorities by making a list of which features will be most beneficial to your job search.

Some of the most highly rated video resume employment websites to consider include Jobma, TalentRooster, VidRes, RezBuzz, MyWorkster, Resumebook, WorkBlast, and Mayomann. After you’ve identified your top priorities and used them to select a video resume website, be sure to write an honest review to help other job seekers who have not yet signed up for one.

Once you’ve signed up on a video resume website, your next step will be to fill out your profile and create your video resume. To make the best possible video resume, always dress professionally and select a clean location that doesn’t have a distracting background. If possible, avoid shooting in your bedroom or at a local coffee shop. If the location you have selected has poor lighting, be sure to adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor or turn on additional lights. Furthermore, brainstorm and prepare for what you would like to actually say in your video resume. Simply reciting a memorized script can often create a very monotonous video resume. Instead, most job seekers find it useful to create a list of bullet points that they’d like to mention. Lastly, don’t forget to watch your video resume before uploading it. It may take you several tries to get the ideal shoot, so don’t automatically plan on uploading your first one. Consider using family and friends to help you decide which of your video resumes you should upload into your profile. For additional video resume tips, check the website you’re using for a job seeker blog and video resume samples. Most offer one or both of these to assist job seekers.
