Why Make a Video Resume?

Southern Teachers is offering a technological advantage for your job search. In addition to presenting your credentials file to schools, we are able to deliver a video resume to the administrators who are considering you.

Competition for good jobs is increasing.  Since inaugurating the video-resume project in 2007, we have determined that candidates with a video resume are twice as likely to get a job!  We want to help you stand out from the crowd and get the interview that you need. A video resume will help us to help you. To that end, we have compiled some tips and guidelines to aid in your creation of a video resume.
