CEO of ITtechExec Stephen Van Vreede discusses the ins and outs of video resumes, encouraging readers to try creating one, but warning them to be discerning before releasing it into the world.
Rochester, NY — Sep 21, 2015 — Stephen Van Vreede, CEO of ITtechExec, published a new blog post titled “Should You Have a Video Resume?” In the post, he explains that video resumes are indeed a good way of distinguishing oneself from the crowd, but they are a risky move that requires detailed care and attention in order to be successful.
Van Vreede says, “Sending traditional resumes into the void can feel like you’re throwing away your time and energy over and over again. In a competitive IT and tech job market, candidates who don’t cut it often won’t even receive a polite rejection letter. (The nerve!) One work-around to the drudgery of resume submissions is creating an impressive, highly individualized video resume. But how do you know if a video resume is going to get you the job—or turn you into a laughing stock?
You should only create a video resume if it fits the culture of the company and position where you’re applying.”
