The Vault’s Video Resume Challenge Winners

The website the Vault evaluated scores of video resumes to select the 5 best submissions. Here were their observations:

  • A confident, poised video resume can make up for deficits in your written resume.
  • If you use the Q&A format, try not to jump immediately to your answers – wait a second or two.
  • Speak at a fairly slow pace.
  • Dress professionally.
  • If at all possible, face the camera.
  • Try not to visibly read off notes or other cues. If you keep your video resume on the shorter side you will not need many, if any, notes.
  • Ensure that the background is professional (no posters stuck to the wall with rolled-up tape, beer cans, etc.)
  • Four minutes is the absolute maximum you should spend on your video resume. Better to keep it between a minute and two minutes.
