VideoJobShop. Video resumes and job offers online. Hmm…not sure what to say about this. Is video the best way to advertise for jobs or try and get one? Not sure. Most of the job offer footage is basic stock stuff from company promos, and the video resumes seem to be rather…um…awkward. For a fun few minutes though, check out the spokesperson resume videos from the Arts and Media section. This video in particular deserves to get some star treatment on YouTube. Hoot! [Thanks Alan].
How can I do this if I’m not a professional editor either? Neither are most of the people who post here. Most people use iMovie or Windows Movie Maker – free programs that come on Mac and PC respectively. Plus, many digital video cameras have editing capabilities built right in. But you may not need to edit your video at all – just keep it short and sweet.
