Good morning – it’s Tuesday, March 16, 2010, and this is your weekly issue of Cyn opsis: Classified Advantage! This edition includes the top job listings in the Television, Media and Ad Agency markets, professional development advice from national experts, your Q & A’s with our experts, and a summary of executive moves among top companies.

Are Video Resumes the Next Big Thing?

No.  And let me tell you why.

Video resumes are long, even the short ones, (about one minute) take much more time than the average scan (10-15 seconds) of a written resume.

There is no software that scans and categorizes video resumes as there is with written resumes.  Big companies rely heavily on this software to fill positions.

Video files use a lot more space on computers than written files.  A compressed, one minute video in quicktime is about 6MB, a two page document in Word is about 30KB.  In storage terms, a company can store 204 written resumes for every one video resume.  Now imagine 1000 applicants sending video resumes.  That’s 5.56 gigabytes of hard drive space for one position.

Companies are often wary that video resumes can lead to legal quagmires regarding hiring practices based on appearances.

An embarrassing video resume can often end up in the wrong hands and land on YouTube, as a joke.

Not all people present well on camera, due to poor lighting, camera work, staging or on air personality.  These videos do much more harm than good.

There can be compatibility issues with video formats.

Many email providers will not allow large attachments to be sent.  Your video resume must conform to their rules.

But if you must create a Video Resume, here are some rules:

Dress as if you were on an interview.

Your video resume should be your elevator pitch on camera.

Limit your video resume to one minute.  Remember, a written resume gets about 15 seconds.

Discuss why you are the best person for the job and what needs you will fill for the company.

Look at the camera, never read from a piece of paper.

Do not talk about your personal life, this is for professional information only.

Make sure the audio is pristine.

The first statement you should make is your full name, and it should be the last, with the exception of a thank you.

Have friends view your resume and if anything, ANYTHING is wrong with it, do it again.

Once the video is perfect, upload it to CareerBuilder, Jobster and MyWorkster with a link to your written resume and cover letter.

Talking with a corporate leader, she said about video resumes, “If you are looking to be hired as a graphic artist, news producer, editor, or some other production job, then a video resume can aptly show your talents better than simple words.”

But she cautioned, “In general, someone who’s expertise is not in video production, should probably stay away from video resumes since they are likely to be less comfortable in front of a camera than in an interview. They may also try to make the video memorable, and it does become memorable though for all the wrong reasons.”

There may be a day where video resumes are the standard, but it’s not today.  Currently, video resumes are largely ignored by corporations for the reasons listed above, but if your job entails any type of portfolio, a video resume that shows off your work and your personality can be a useful tool in your search for a job.

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
Hybrid background? It could be your edge.
by Michael Pollock

I spoke recently with an executive who had a most successful corporate career in the TV business and has since for some years been in more entrepreneurial positions developing projects and new businesses. He wants to get back to a more structured environment but is concerned that having been out of the corporate system for some years might disqualify him. His thought was that corporations are looking for neat fits of people who are currently or have recently been in corporate jobs and that his time outside the fence would disqualify him.

Well it shouldn’ t. Everyone I talk to in big media firms is telling me the same story  and that is of restructuring and rethinking and new business models and fewer people doing the work that used to be done by many … and smaller paychecks. Does that sound right, my corporate friends?

My experience is that people who have grown up in highly structured organizations where everyone knows where they fit into the pecking order, and who has what title and so on, are not always the best people to implement the kinds of changes that are needed to bring media firms up to date. The status quo that corporate employees have long thrived on is dead. That security blanket is no more. In fact things will be in a constant state of flux for the foreseeable future so anyone who works best in a fixed orbit with known parameters will not fare well or be sufficiently effective.

But someone who has not only worked successfully in a corporate environment, yet can also bring first hand experience of an inventive, open and entrepreneurial way of thinking to the table, will be enormously valuable in so many companies today. This combination is something that corporate managers should be looking for.

I suggest to you that if you have this hybrid background, you would do well to frame yourself in those terms: as an entrepreneurial change agent who is excited at the prospect of helping to mold the new media world, yet still able to work collegially within the system.  This combo could be your edge.

So this is a word to corporate hiring executives and to those who aspire to get in there and help reinvent the media business. All experience is good experience. And a candidate with a variety of experience is often a stronger one than the person who has stayed “on track” for their whole career.

~ ASK THE EXPERTS ~
Questions from our Readers
Answered by  Michael Pollock

What should I bring to an interview? I don’t want to bring too much stuff, and yet be prepared for anything.

Bring your portfolio of work if that applies. Bring your sizzle reel or other material that can be left behind. Bring a few copies of your resume. Bring a notebook and pen in case you get any ideas or learn anything that you need to remember. That is about it.

The most important stuff will be in your head: who you are, why you are valuable, your stories that demonstrate this, your knowledge of the company and understanding of their brand, your grasp of what they are looking for. Internalize all this, relax and remember they need you just as much as you need them. And don’t forget to turn your phone off!

If the interviewer doesn’t tell you want to call him/her, should I use their last name? Show confidence and refer to them by their first name? Go formal and use Miss, Mrs. or Ms.? Sir? Ma’am?

For the media business I would avoid anything too formal.  But of course be polite. You should probably enter the room confidently and as you go for the handshake, introduce yourself by your first and last name. Perhaps you’ll get a cue from your interviewer: if they call you by your first name then you can respond in kind.

But really, if there are only two of you in the room, why do you need to use a name at all? They know who you are talking to. I myself find it extremely irritating when people use my name to me in a form like, “I am glad you asked that, Michael.” Or “Let me tell you something, Mr. Pollock.” (Was Dale Carnegie responsible for this?)

So on balance you will most likely get through the whole interview without needing to call them anything. Just keep your mind on being the best person to solve their problem, and try not to fret about the name thing.
