How do I present myself?
Make sure your appearance matches the job you’re looking for. Pay special attention to the way you dress, as if you were going to a regular job interview
It is better not to read your speech from crib notes during the recording of your videocv. You should look into the camera, but there is no need to stare. Looking away while thinking is fine and natural.
It is very important to personalize your videocv by expressing a positive and natural attitude. Be authentic, do not perform. Your body language gives away the truth to an experienced recruiter.
Keep your message strong and short: your videocv should not be longer than 60 seconds. A recruiter will ask for your written cv and an interview if needed.
Would you not win any prizes at beaty contests? Not a problem. A videocv and job application is all about knowledge and experience.
And last but not least: be yourself !
