This problem is aggravated by the fact that most professional resume writers don't have the behind the scene background that I do, so when choosing a resume writer, be sure and interview them first, before committing to use their services. In the interest of full disclosure, I do not offer a resume writing service other than assisting my active candidates with resume revisions prior to submitting their resume to a client.
Many employers do not receive your resume via email, instead your resume is paraphrased into their ATS (Applicant Tracking System). In other words, technology interpreted your resume formatting and attempted to put it into a readable form within the ATS so it could be read easily by the recruiter and then managed much like a sales professional manages customer profiles within their customer relationship management system.
You worked hard on your resume format, and visited a number of online sources to learn how to write a resume, looked at the most popular resume examples and samples. You considered online resume builder software solutions during your resume preparation. You feel like you've covered all the important bases as you learned how to make a resume that you're comfortable with.
Job seekers are accustomed to making themselves look good on paper but it is harder to make yourself look good on video. Paper resumes make your case before you walk into the interview. It is easier for a recruiter or interviewer to forgive any fidgeting in person because your paper resume has already told them that you have the skills for the job. If the interviewer has to sit through a video with several minutes of rambling dialogue, accompanied by nervous tics, and the sound of traffic or air conditioning in the background to be able to hear your skill set, you may not get to make your case before you lose the interviewer's interest. Since video resumes are still new, there is no real standard set yet as to how these resumes should appear and how information should be presented. It can be easy for applicants to go wrong.
Does this sound like you? The bad news about this is that your resume is actually hurting you. If you cannot get an interview after sending your resume to a recruiter, posting it on a website or sending it to a company, your resume is not selling you. Without proper sales, you cannot get a job interview. If you cannot get a job interview, you cannot find a job. Why then do candidates continue to use the same resume even if it does not work for them is unclear.
