Waterloo, On (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
As students return to colleges and universities this fall in pursuit of careers, the ACareerJob video resume app offers a fresh way for soon-to-be grads to convey more than just education and experience to prospective employers.
The video resume app allows job-seekers to submit a personalized introduction to employers and showcase their soft skills along with a traditional resume. The tool adds dimension to resumes and helps applicants distinguish themselves in the stacks of resumes on employers’ desks.
“Taking the time to create a thoughtful and polished video resume shows that an applicant is serious about the job and took the time to go the extra mile,” said John Francis, president of ACareerJob. “It allows you to show the company who you are and at the same time communicates that you truly believe you could be a great addition to their team—and took an extra step to tell them why.”
According to Francis, the job-matching app and video resume tool is helping job-seekers capitalize on the technology shift by giving employers a preview of the person behind the facts and figures. Video resumes add to and don’t detract from traditional application packages, he noted, and are a great tool to help land a first interview and to stand out in an overabundance of applicants.
“Employers seeking to narrow down increasingly large fields of applicants are searching for candidates that stand out. The ACareerJob video resume app lets job-seekers take advantage of new electronic application modes to add value and a voice to their application packages,” Francis said.
In addition to the video resume feature, the ACareerJob job-finding app features a candidate profile and traditional resume attachment applicants can submit.
