According to career publisher Vault Inc.'s annual employer survey, 89% of employers revealed that they would watch a video resume if it were submitted to them.  Apart from revealing what skills you’ve accomplished, video resumes also unveil facets of your personality a traditional paper resume can't communicate. Employers and hiring managers can use it as a pre-screening tool to assess if you are indeed a good “fit” for their company, or if you’re aligned with their attitudes, values, and company mission.


2. Video Resume Are Unique

Video resumes are unique. When a hiring manager notices a video in the pile of resumes, their curiosity will definitely be awakened, and he or she will want to view it. As you know, getting the hiring manager’s attention is every job seeker's intention. With a video resume, you’ve definitely achieved that objective.


3. Showcase Your Personality

Employers and hiring managers are looking for more than what knowledge and skills you can bring to their company, they also want to see if your personality is a good fit for their company. In a video resume, you can showcase your unique personality, voice and most importantly your brand. How you brand yourself to a prospective employer is the key.


4. Speak In Length About Skills Or Accomplishments

With traditional resumes, a skillset or accomplishment applicable to an intended position can be overlooked, whereas to a video resume can point out why you are the best candidate for a job. A job seeker can use their video resume to speak about a project or important accomplishment that shows potential employers how your skills can be applied to a position in their company.
