I haven't created a video resume and in fact, heard the first time. I would love to know if you have created it, what was your experience.

I haven't tried a video resume, but I will try one. A video resume can quickly assess your personality, presentation and communication skills.

I haven't thought about this, but maybe it makes sense. It would be nice to have a 30 secs video to present your motivation and a short summary of who you are. Do you know any platforms that allow this?

@bogomep It could be some sort of a short interview to show your interest and motivation for the job. My product VIDMONIALS provides a facility for remote video recording. A user of Vidmonials can send a web link to any person to record a video for them; that person can record a video for Vidmonials' user without downloading any software or registering to any website.

Yes, and this is a good experience, in fact, I'm sure that such videos are more pleasant and useful to watch than to read resumes created using sites https://www.gotresumebuilder.com/ or something similar
