Emily’s and my connection was a complete fluke. During the early days of the COVID-19 shut down, I had a message in my LinkedIn inbox from a lady who was applauding my presentation from earlier that day, which occurred in a virtual job-seeking event. The only thing was, I was not the presenter. It was a different Anne.
Our conversation lead into what positions she was seeking to find, how her experience in lock-down on the outskirts of NYC was going and how I was working on a resume enhancement to allow job seekers to gain more visibility. I asked if she would like to be a tester of the process? She accepted!
Emily ended up being a huge voice of feedback during the making of the white-glove and My Resume Reel™ programs. She was devoted to testing out the processes and providing candid feedback as to what worked and did not. Emily has been fortunate enough to find work during these uncertain times, however, I wanted to share her and her reel with you because she is just an amazing person and her efforts are part of what made this process a reality to help so many.
Here is what a home-made reel looks like with the polish of our editors.
What is My Resume Reel™
The end result is a 30-60 second video that highlights the value that YOU bring to business.
The get there, My Resume Reel™ takes you through a process of introspection, one that guides you through the thought process of what is your unique value in business and what do you have to offer to a company who is hiring?
Once you key in to what your business "super power" is, we help you make that statement in the most concise format and guide you on how to record, edit and post your statement.
Our customers have shared that this experience goes beyond creating a video into promoting a sense of preparedness, confidence and empowerment to move forward in the job seeking process.
The difference of a My Resume Reel™ graduate and any other job seeking candidate is that they know exactly who they are in business, what they have to offer and begin to ask themselves if a job is a match for them instead of "am I a match for this job?"
What is the purpose of My Resume Reel™
The Job seeker shares WHO I am - or - What type of person that they are in business.
The Recruiter gets to see what type of person the job candidate is before ever making contact.
How does the Job seeker post and the Recruiter see a reel? It's simple. Once the video is made, the Job Seeker chooses which platform that they want to post their video to, with or without password, and puts the link on their resume and social media sites for recruiters to click and view at any time.
In a world, where a resume is not enough. Where 20Million People are out of work. How do you stand out? WITH YOUR VOICE.
Welcome to the world’s first video resume enhancement that puts WHO a job candidate is, in their resume portfolio.
For decades, job seekers have been saying “WHO I am is just as important as WHAT I have done,” and “If only they met me, if I could just speak to them, they would know that I am the right candidate for this job.”
Now, this is possible! Recruiters can meet and relate to you, before they even make contact with you from a short 30-60 second video reel that is linked to your resume.
Over the last few months we have been working tirelessly to create a solution for job seekers to stand out in the over-populated job seeking pool and to help recruiters shorten their recruiting time by being able to relate to candidates earlier in the process. We developed a formula, tested it over and over again until we got it just right to where a job seeker can take a course to identify their personal business value statement in less than 30 minutes.
The people who have taken our course have called it empowering, uplifting and encouraging as it not only helps them identify who they are in business, but it really has helped them understand what value they bring to the roles they are seeking, just in time for interviews.
