Properly used, video resumes can be an excellent format to showcase job experience as well as polished communications skills. There is still a novel aspect to video resumes so making still shows a willingness to embrace new technology and think outside the box. As long as applicants understand a company's resume submission policies, as well as ensure that their video is professional and in a venue a potential employer may frequent, it increases the chances this new form of resume can help and not hinder their chances of finding employment.
When gaps in employment occur - especially for explainable and legitimate reasons - use the functional format which emphasizes accomplishments in employment rather than indicating when you worked. If you are changing your career or are returning to civilian employment from government work, use the functional or the hybrid format to emphasize your ability to transfer learned skills, accomplishments, leadership, and rigorous training to move into the employment of the profit or non-profit arena. In addition, retired, injured, downsized, and older workers returning to employment may elect to choose the functional or hybrid model.
Just like a chronological resume, a functional one should start with a very compelling objective statement. The objective statement is where you will place the information you think is the most appealing to a potential employer. It is also the place where you will list any of your personal career goals. It is my belief that this is the most important sentence in your resume. If you get it right, the reader will want to read the rest of your resume. If you get it wrong, the reader will probably not read the rest of your resume will set aside for another more appealing option. Try to focus on how you feel you were skills will benefit the employer. Show them how you can help them accomplish their corporate goals.
Additionally, video resumes pose a risk to companies that paper resumes do not, legal risks that have caused some companies to discard all resumes that are accompanied by videos. When some companies these days black out names on resumes to avoid potential race or gender bias among those who review resumes, video resumes open employers up to potential claims of race, gender and age discrimination-even how the applicant looks in the video, in some instances, can clearly cause more problems for the applicant than they solve.
There are numerous advantages of getting resume writing assistance. The most important is that it will be written by someone who has much experience and knowledge than you in the task. Professional writers know how best to target your skills and expertise with the requirements of the job. They will research for the key skills and attributes of the job and then highlight all your matching skills to show how suitable you are for the post. Professional writers will also make sure of creating a powerful objective statement or a profile statement that grab the attention of the evaluator. A well written resume will make you stand out from everyone else even if there is tough competition. Finally a good resume will boost your confidence and make you think positively of the job prospects.
Your cover letter and resume is your poster child and the first impression on prospective employers. Starting from the cover letter, you need to convince the hiring manager that you are the right person for the open position and that you are really motivated to do exactly this job. You are not the only person sending application documents, most likely there are many resumes from your competitors the organization or company is going to receive. If you don't write a cover letter and resume that stands out of the crowd, your chances of being invited for a job interview are remote.
