We sent out a call for you guys to share your own video resumes with us and got a big fat zero in reply. Hey, we get it; creating a video of yourself in your living room does feel especially vulnerable! But we still wanted to share some examples of video resumes in case the reason you haven’t created your own yet is because you just need a little inspiration. We scoured the interwebs to find these video resumes in the comms and marketing space that we thought would inspire you.
Daisy Suralaga, communications, marketing and public relations
Daisy’s creative approach weaves together clips of her working “in action” and examples of projects she has worked on in the past. Her fun, bubbly personality shines through as she briefly talks about her personal life and hobbies, but she is still able to tie it all back into her career aspirations.
Sajita Nair, marketing and public relations
You don’t need fancy graphics and super video production skills. With good posture and body language, Sajita confidently shares her story and her skills in a simple and professional way.
Lauren Goodman, writing, content creation and graphic design
If you have experience in graphics or video production, creating an animated video resume could be the perfect way to showcase your skills in a unique way. Though Lauren doesn’t talk at all in the video, her personality shines through her fun music selection and dynamic storytelling.
Evaldas Vilius, film and video design
Evaldas’ video resume blends his video reels, portfolio pieces and professional experience. We want to hire him!
