Video resumes are the future of job applications. They usually spans one to three minutes and allow job applicants to highlight certain skills such as communication, presentation and leadership abilities. It concisely explains your skills and accomplishments as they relate to a prospective employer. It also includes your answers to commonly asked interview questions such as
• Your name and short introduction
• Your dream job and related previous experience
