Applying with a Video Cover Letter
How it works
A traditional cover letter is a brief document you send to a prospective employer that describes your interest in and qualifications for a job you’d like. You should always opt to include a cover letter when you apply for a job, unless you’ve personally been asked to submit just a resume. But, you know this process takes a lot of time, and sometimes, it’s difficult to figure out how to write an effective cover letter for each position you’re applying for.
In fact, cover letters often require more thought than a resume because you need to explain why you’re interested and how your personality and background make you a good fit with the organization. This can be pretty difficult to accomplish with a traditional written cover letter. However, new innovations in recruiting may provide you with a better solution. A video cover letter!
