The key with a video resume is that very few people have actually created one, so they serve as a differentiation in the recruiting process. A good video resume is short, describes the value you can contribute to a given position, explains why you’re the best person for the job and talks about your background in a story-like format. If you aren’t a person with an outgoing and lively personality, then don’t bother creating one. That is how you have a successful job search and stand out for years to come.
