When it comes to getting the most out of Jobma, your video pitch is your ultimate differentiator! Take the time to do it correctly and employers will respond. You have 60 seconds to showcase yourself and tell your story. What do you want your pitch to say about you?
We cannot stress practicing enough. You may be tempted to just “wing it,” but take the time to craft a quality pitch. Doing some free takes is a good way to get comfortable with the video medium, but for the one that counts have a plan on what you want to say.
2. State the un-obvious
Your resume says where you have been and what you have done, there is no reason to re-hash all this information. Tell the story that your resume does not tell for you. Showcase your soft skills, personality, and what makes you stand out from the crowd. Take this opportunity to control your impression better than the fonts you chose.
3. 60 seconds is a challenge
60 seconds seems like a short amount of time to say what you’d like. Use your time wisely and map out your pitch. Think outside of the box and showcase why/how you can make a difference for a company!
4. Be tough on yourself
Would you feel comfortable showing your video pitch to friends and family? If not, why would you feel comfortable showing it to someone who would give you a job? Use your own opinion and the people close to you as your harshest critics. They will help you overall in the search for your next job.
