The Tool That Will Get You Noticed: A Professional Multi-Media/Video Resume
by: Christopher Gormley

Sky high unemployment has acutely increased competition for the few jobs available. This is good for hiring companies, as they now have access to the deepest pool of qualified candidates in a generation. However, for candidates looking for a job, it can be challenging, frustrating, even discouraging. How can a job seeker gain a competitive advantage over competition from so many good candidates?

One way to set one's self apart in a professional manner is to create a comprehensive and integrated video resume. There are several companies that specialize in this type of exclusive service, and will help you create an integrated multi-media vehicle, helping a job seeker's capabilities as they market themselves in a new and powerful fashion.

An executive at Kane Partners recruiting agency, Gary Kane is in favor of using video resumes. “We are empowering our job seeking clients with an affordable new set of tools. We help them better compete with the hundreds of applicants being considered for the most desirable open positions. The power of a multi-media resume (also known as video resume), professionally designed and aligned with the job seekers goals, strengths and experience can make the difference between being ignored and getting the interview. When you integrate this service with our interview coaching and Social Media training, you have a real marketing differentiator. The job market has raised the bar.we are helping our clients respond."

Gary offers this caution however: "We've seen some 'do-it-yourself' specials. The sad fact is, if multi-media or video resume not done extremely well, it will likely hurt more than help."

After you are satisfied with your video resume it is important to promote it. You can do this by uploading it to the web on YouTube or other video sites, and adding a link to it from your online or paper resume. Make sure to upload a link to it on your LinkIn profile and any other sites where you have your resume. Let all your networking contacts know about your new video resume.
