London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
Resume Surgeon, the resume and career expert, has launched a brand new online video channel following demand from its users.
Resume Surgeon deals with hundreds of jobseekers across the US every day and offers an online tool where members can build a bespoke resume template. But during the last few months the team at Resume Surgeon has found an increase in the number of people enquiring about resume advice – most noticeably what content to include.
This has prompted the launch of a new online video channel. The Resume Surgeon video channel, on You Tube, offers viewers a variety of resume advice and career information. Topics are varied and include resume writing tips, job interview advice, career progression tips and job search advice.
“We receive hundreds of queries every week asking for resume advice,” said Hayley Stovold, spokesperson for Resume Surgeon. “The queries we receive are from a number of different applicants in different situations. Some are out of work and want to make their resume stand out and others are in full time employment but looking to change their career path. Although the website offers career advice articles, we felt introducing career videos would complement our existing content and further help candidates looking for work.”
The You Tube channel was launched earlier this year and the videos are free to watch. Shot in a variety of locations, the videos run alongside written advice articles on the Resume Surgeon website. Exclusive career interviews are amongst the content and follow people in different industries, asking for their career advice. The most recent interview focused on becoming a Teacher and included tips on how to make a resume stand out and how to apply for teaching jobs.
It is hoped that the career videos will help jobseekers secure more job interviews. The Resume Surgeon team believe this as through their research they have found that time and preparation spent creating a resume and researching can increase chances of employment.
Unemployment in the US remains at around 8% and thousands of people are still looking for work. As many people share the same qualifications and experience, the most successful way of standing out is by looking for resume advice and preparing as much as possible. The Resume Surgeon ( http://www.resume-surgeon.com/ ) teams’ experience shows that spending time asking for a second opinion and checking over an application before sending it could prove vital during a job search.
The video channel was launched following popular demand and there are a variety of development plans in place for the future. The Industry Spotlight section (video interviews with industry experts) is set to expand and offer more industry specific career advice. As well as continuing to offer videos based on resume content and interview advice, the team will continue to review user feedback. Any feedback that becomes repetitive will be addressed with a career advice video and the content included on the new video platform.
With the number of people using Smartphones still increasing, it is also hoped that offering this new video service will allow users to prepare for job interviews while on the move. Content can be watched at the click of a button so candidates looking to cram in last minute interview preparation can with the support of the new Resume Surgeon multimedia content.
