Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
ViewYou, an Indianapolis-based provider of multimedia presentation tools for job seekers, is teaming with the University of Indianapolis to make its services available to students preparing to enter the job market.
Through the university's Office of Career Services, all UIndy students will have the opportunity to create a ViewYou profile, including a high-definition video resume, for a discounted price of $29. The university staff will work to identify students most likely to benefit from the service, and alumni and employers will have access to the student videos through the UIndy web portal.
ViewYou profiles and videos also will be provided free to students in a 300-level business administration course, Career and Employment Strategies, which is integrating the service into its curriculum for the coming academic year.
ViewYou profiles provide employers with insight beyond a paper resume, as they will be able to gauge the student’s demeanor, personality and soft skills. Filming will begin in early October. In addition to the HD video, student profiles can include a resume, writing sample, transcripts and job preference information.
“We are elated to be able to offer our students the chance to introduce themselves and their credentials to prospective employers, grad schools, gap-year and other organizations, with the help of a ViewYou profile says Paul Gabonay, Director of Career Services.” “ We think the videos they create can serve them well as they build their career network and pursue their dreams and goals during and following their time at the University of Indianapolis.”
The partnership has been arranged by Sam Turpin, ViewYou’s Vice President of Business Development, and University of Indianapolis’s Career Services Office.
“I believe this is a terrific opportunity both for ViewYou and University of Indianapolis students,” said Turpin. “UIndy students will now have the visibility to stand out in today’s job market and we are excited to be working with a cutting edge school.”
ViewYou profiles are confidential; access is securely controlled by the candidates themselves. ViewYou users include students, graduates, young professionals and employers.
