Video CV Scripts

Perfect your Video CV with a bespoke script from UK CV Experts

Most job hunters use paper CVs to find the role of their dreams. With YouTube providing free hosting for your video content, some people are finding it easier to create a short video CV to distribute to UK employers. In our opinion, we think that video CVs are appropriate for certain industries but we always recommend that you have a written CV as back-up as that is what UK employers will expect to see.

When is it good to use a Video CV?

Video CVs are great to use as an introduction if you are applying for a job in another part of the UK, or if you are applying for a UK position from overseas. If you are applying for a UK job from a remote location, your video CV will give the recruiter a good idea of how you present yourself and strong your grasp of the English language is. They will be able to hear whether you speak fluently, use the correct tense and can recall words easily. They will also be able to hear how strong your accent is, so ensure you practise before you make your video CV recording. These factors may be important if you are applying for a customer-facing role.

Is a Video CV better than a Skype Video Interview?

When you are seeking a new role in the UK, we always prefer you to get a face-to-face interview. That should be your number one goal. Once the interviewer has met you and seen how you respond to questions and handle objections, they will be able to make a more accurate assessment as to whether you are the right candidate for their business.

If you live outside the UK and cannot attend a face-to-face interview, the next best thing is to agree a Skype video interview. As this video interview will rely on your broadband connection, you are at the mercy of your internet supplier. However, the benefit of this style interview is that you are interacting with the recruiter. They will be able to read your body language and hear your answers to their questions in real-time. It is the closest you will get to a face-to-face interview experience without actually being in the country. In summary, the video CV is useful while you are prospecting for a new job, not as a substitute for an actual interview.
