Welcome to a brand new way of introducing yourself to a potential employer, a V-Resume!
What is a V-Resumé?
A Video Resume (V-Resume) is a short 1-2 minute video about you that you can show an employer. The V-Resume gives you a chance to introduce yourself and your skills as a potential employee.
Each section has simple steps to follow including hints for both the jobseeker and the person or people that will be supporting you. This person or people are called a ‘V-Partner’.
What is a V-Partner?
A V-Partner is someone who supports you to create your V-Resume. You can have more than one person as your V-Partner. Your V-Partner could be:
- A friend
- Someone supporting you in the community
- Your employment consultant
Choose someone that:
- You really trust
- Knows you well
- You feel comfortable talking to
- Is happy to support you no matter how long it takes
- Helpful if they have some computer skills
There is also a V-Partner booklet for the person supporting you. This V-Partner booklet is a guide on how to support the jobseeker in the planning and filming of the V-Resume.
For the Jobseeker – Read through the questions first. Answer some or all. This is very helpful before you start Step One and Step Two with your V-Partner.Download Jobseeker Workbook1.2mb PDF
