Personal Branding Leveraging Hiring Managers and Recruiters in Lehman”s Terms 2:32 Video

Last Year, I asked the question about video resumes and visual portfolio strategies are we there yet? With all the talk about personal branding and the increase in social video platform usage why aren’t companies looking at video resumes more?

Companies like HireVue that do an awesome job of automating the hiring process with video interview technology. They provide a service for companies to screen candidates through video interviews thus improving and making the hiring process more efficient. But what about the job seeker or candidate that is proactive with their own visual resume.

Questions to consider.

What about the job candidate or business networker that initiates a video resume or proposal? How is that being received by recruiters, talent acquisition departments?

Now I get it recruiters are tasked with sourcing right candidate for their paying client. This is the top priority of most recruiters. Recruiters are tasked with reviewing and scanning thousands of resumes and making a judgement in 15 seconds or less prior to a candidate interview screen.

A short video link probably won’t get reviewed because of time constraints. Most recruiters are busy surfing job boards and scanning resumes or using applicant tracking software programs to be more efficient. So much for being innovative, developing a personal brand and leveraging video if your message is not received by the recruiter or human resources. It doesn’t matter how innovative or creative you are if your message does not resonate with it’s audience on the initial contact.

I believe the focus should be getting to the hiring manager or business decision maker to see if your talents, services and skills are the match but why can’t we be more savvy on the front end of recruiting and sourcing?

MORE QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER?

What are your thoughts on Video Resumes?

What tools and online portfolios do you use for career development, job search and personal branding?

How do you leverage other social networking sites with Video to share and engage?

How do we get the decision maker or hiring manager to view your visual resume and personal branding material?

Will visual resumes and videos be more proficient in the future for recruiters and talent acquisition teams?

My Rant No Excuses Use mobile video in Sales – Social Selling Video Flashback

Almost two years ago, I made a video post on why you should be implementing mobile video as part of your sales process.  I was passionate back then on this topic. The message remains the same; video is a powerful tool when leveraged correctly. I think it is a good time to revisit the benefits of mobile video for sales presentations adding clarity to expedite the sales cycle.

The is my second Video Rant post, yet another wake up call (Call To Action) on why you should be using video as part of your sales process.  My first video rant flashback was titled My Rant Why Use Web Video for Sales Engagement Online Social Selling.

Mobile video has so many benefits for sales and marketing departments to engage customers.  It’s 2014, no more excuses or myths, video should be a part of the presentation process says the fired up shouting man in this video.

Sell More Make Personal Sales Development Training a Priority Social Selling TV

Sell More Make Personal Sales Development Training a Priority a new episode for Social Selling TV.

What do today’s savvy sales representatives do to excel in sales?  They value ongoing sales training and personal development as part of their sales process.  They make it a priority to learn above and beyond typical standard level of corporate sales training.  They understand what it takes to bring insightful information to their prospects creating a competitive advantage.


I am making the assumption that you already know your product features and service benefits.  The second assumption is you that have a clear understanding of prospecting and selling to correct target audience.  Sales superstars take personal responsibility and accountability to self train.  They are not waiting on corporate training programs or the marketing department to provide knowledge base training material. They are motivated and committed to learning.

At the end of the day you are accountable for your sales goals and quota.  Spend time to self train delivering customer value that resonates with today’s buyer.  This process starts with research and education positioning yourself as an expert and trusted advisor.
