Video Profile

You’ve created your ISMYCV online resume, selected the industries you’d like to appear in searches for, uploaded a photo, and now you’re ready to sit back and wait for your new job to come to you.

But there’s still more you can do to increase your chances of getting noticed!

One of ISMYCV’s unique tools is the free Video Profile feature, which allows you to upload a personal video introduction alongside your online resume, visible to all potential employers that come across your name.

While you’ve still got a great chance of finding your dream job on ISMYCV without a Video Profile on your account, there are a lot of reasons to consider adding one.

Having a video on your account (along with a profile picture) gives your ‘Resume Ranking’ a tremendous boost. This ranking, another unique feature of ISMYCV.com.au, is used to determine the order of candidates employers see when they search for relevant employees. That means having a Video Profile will push you closer to the top of the listings, a great way to get noticed.

Most importantly, your Video Profile allows a potential employer to get a sense of who you really are. By simply introducing yourself and perhaps explaining a few of your goals and aspirations, you create an instant connection between the employer and yourself.

Do you feel like your resume, with its summary of your experience, training and career highlights, doesn’t really demonstrate who you are fully? Your free ISMYCV Video Profile is your opportunity to bridge that gap.

Before you start filming, spend a few minutes thinking about how you will present yourself in your video. What will you wear? Will you speak casually or professionally? Is a simple, white background best or would you rather be sitting on your couch or back garden.

Of course, the answers to these questions depend largely on the type of job you’re looking for and the type of person you want to demonstrate yourself to be. Wearing a t-shirt and cap probably isn’t right if you’re looking for a job as an attorney, but it might be perfect for a bar job.

Likewise, there’s no need to wear a suit if the job won’t require one, and if it will simply make you feel uncomfortable.

The ISMYCV website has plenty of resources available to help you create the perfect Video Profile quickly and easily, including a sample Video Profile script, an example of a finished video and helpful tips on recording a video using your video camera, smartphone or computer.

Without an ISMYCV Video Profile, you’re missing out on the opportunity to create a lasting, controllable first impression. Add one to your online resume for free now!
