)-- With the explosion of social networking sites, more and more recruiters and companies are using the internet to find candidates. As well as using text based sites a lot of employers use social media including video. With this in mind candidates should keep up with change and consider creating a video CV.
CV Surgeon, the career and CV expert, has found that creating a video CV can compliment a job application. Although it shouldn't replace the traditional written CV, a video will increase chances of finding employment.
A video CV is designed to show an employer personality, key skills and work experience. The team at CV Surgeon have found that keeping the video short, less than one minute long, can be beneficial. Employers often won't want to read or watch a job application for too long so revealing all relevant skills and achievements as quickly as possible can be advantageous.
A video CV can be used to raise career profiles and online visibility when candidates are looking for jobs.
