Successful companies hire the best people, not the best resumes

You’ve probably heard “Successful companies hire the best people, not the best resumes.” It makes sense. Companies want to know you can perform the functional duties of the job AND you’re someone they’d want to work with. Qualities such as integrity, collaboration, dependability, resilience and empathy are correlated with high-performing teams and are the building blocks of a healthy corporate culture. However, these attributes are often difficult to convey with a traditional resume, thus candidates opt for keyword-rich resumes devoid of personality and storytelling.

That’s why we have interviews, right? Companies are making it a priority to gauge cultural fit when they get you on the phone or bring you in to meet the team. But before the interview, how can you show that not only can you do the job, but you’re also the interesting, supportive, accountable, passionate, dedicated, and thoughtful candidate they’re looking for?

Your video resume.

Video resumes allow you to tell richer, more connected stories about your experience, abilities, and passions. You can better control the narrative to explain what you’ve done, where you’re headed, and the value you’ll bring. And by using sight, sound, and motion, your personality and drive will stand out from the parade of bullet points recruiters see day after day.
