These two words are etched in my memory. "Hire her" was the response of a decision-maker after viewing my video resume. Why these words had an impact on me is because this person had not met me and had not seen my written resume. My video resume was forwarded to them after I was interviewed for the position, and the response was, “Hire her”.
I had been looking for full-time work for several years, almost five in fact. Like many others, I was piecing together an income with contract and part time work. I had applied for dozens of full-time jobs over the years, investing countless hours customizing my resume and cover letter to the position I was applying to but with very little response. I even hired a professional resume writer to redo my resume and cover letter but still to no avail. I knew I had to try something different to stand out. I decided to make a video resume.
Well, it worked! I was hired for the position. I continued to work for the company but always had in the back of my mind that perhaps if it worked this well for me, it could have the same impact for others, like you. This is how VideoResumesWork started.
I hope I get the opportunity to work with you on your video resume, so that a potential employer will say the same thing about you: Hire her! Hire him! Hire you!
