The basics

Step off the page with a video resume

A video resume commands far more attention than a paper resume. Every job candidate sends a paper resume, but you’ll be the only one with a video, too. That’ll instantly separate your application from the slush pile and get your foot in the door.

Take the planning off your plate with templates

Cooking from scratch is hard, so is creating an animated resume from thin air. Biteable has templates for every profession, designed by video pros to help you keep your video resume on track and make the best impression.

Simply edit the template, add a sprinkle of your personality and a drizzle of your skills, and cook up a video resume that’s immune to rejection.

Build your personal brand with color and motion graphics

Choose a color scheme and style to create a motion graphic resume that builds professional rapport and visually represents who you are.

The Biteable editor offers built-in color schemes and visuals that polish your video till it shines. It’s like adding your personal logo to your animation resume (we also have animated logos if you want to add one for real).

Go beyond the selfie video

Even if all you’ve got is your phone camera, your video resume can be more than a simple selfie video. Add stock footage and background music to create a memorable video resume that’s way cooler than plainly answering questions on camera and gets rapt attention from beginning to end.

Pro tips

3 ways to knock your video resume out of the park

Written resumes are by nature a little stuffy. A video resume is your chance to showcase your personality, show off your creativity, and build a brand that puts you in your own category.

Demonstrate how you’ll fit in with the company culture and even show samples of your work (especially if your work has visual appeal). Your video resume is your chance to present a complete picture of yourself and add anything your typed resume leaves out.

Keep it short, but informative

Your video resume should be between 30-120 seconds. Sixty seconds is the sweet spot.

That might seem short, but don’t worry. It’s plenty if you keep your message focused and avoid fluff. Cover the important points like what you bring to the company, your skills and accomplishments, and your goals. If you need a guide, a template helps keep everything between the lines.

Give your video the share test

A lot of important people will watch your video resume, so imagine posting your video on the internet. Would you be comfortable with your video resume going viral?

If you’re cool with anyone on the internet seeing your video resume, it’s good to go. If going viral is scary, you may want to spend a bit more time on it.

Get some (nice) feedback

Even if your video resume passes the share test, send it to a few friends and family members and ask for honest feedback. Make any needed adjustments before you send it off to potential employers.
