WESTLAND, MI, June 22, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- iResumed.com announces the launch of their online web-site, providing job-seekers the ability to link a video to their resumes, and employers with the ability to screen job candidates more effectively. The Video resume site provides a bridge between the traditional resume of the past and the video resume of the future by making them both work together.
"Video resumes have received a lot of consideration but have provided little value to the employer," explains Mike Mead, President, and Founder of iResumed.com. "Besides seeing what someone looks like and hearing them speak, there is nothing more to gain other that what's on their resume," says Mead. This is because of two reasons; First, a video resume alone is not good enough, you need the written resume to compliment the video for maximum value. Second, video resumes currently have no real structure so that they may be critiqued until now," says Mead.
iResumed.com uses a five step system on their video resume site (Patent Pending). This is how it works.
- Import your resume and create a profile.
- Choose an interview question to answer.
--There are over 50 questions to choose from along with sample answers, advice on talk paths, and what hiring managers are typically trying to uncover.
- Shoot your video answering the question that you selected in step 2.
- Upload your video which then creates a Quick Response (Q.R.) code that can be hyperlinked to your video and placed on your resume.
--This allows your Q.R. code to be selected by a mouse when it's available online or scanned by a Q.R. scanner when it's in a printed tangible form. Great for job fairs!
- After your Q.R. code is placed on your resume you simply upload your resume as you would normally do but this time you will be sending a video with it.
"A company should not have to change the way they receive resumes from their candidates", says Mead. "With this system, 99% of companies world-wide will be able to accept video resumes using the same platforms they are currently using. iResumed.com is the first step in bridging the past with the present and making it all relevant.
Job-seekers and companies are savvy and use every possible tool at their disposal to find the best opportunity. By answering an interview question companies can get a glimpse into an employee's background that is not displayed on their resume. For the job-seeker, they have a chance to display their best career successes and put their best foot forward. "That makes this system unique and a win-win situation," says Mead.
The paper resume is not dead at all and has plenty of relevance. By adding video to your resume you create a powerful tool that benefits job seekers and employers across the world. Using iResumed.com, companies will save a ton of time and a ton of money. This company also allows job-seekers to put their best foot forward when they need it most in this recovering economy.
iResumed.com is a web-based company that started in Detroit, Mi, by Michael Mead. The service provides a resource for job-seekers and employers by adding video to the traditional resume. Candidates can record a video, place it on their resume, and upload their resume to employers. To learn more about iResumed, LLC, visit the website at www.iResumed.com.
