Video Resumes – A Refreshing Alternative to Demo Reels

first_imgWant to stand out from the crowd? A video resume will not only show off your work and capabilities but also will give the viewer insight into your personality. Check out our favorites and a few considerations for making your own.If you search Vimeo for ‘demo reel’ you’ll get 83,000 results (February 2014). What are you doing to set yourself apart?Applying for a job in a video or design field? Submitting a high quality demo reel is not only suggested, it’s often required. And while well crafted demo reels can show off your previous projects and work experience they do little to inform the viewer about the person behind the footage.Employers want to hire someone they connect with. This is where a ‘video resume’ can really set you apart from the pack.Similar to a demo reel or showreel, a video resume showcases your technical abilities but also gives the viewer insight into who you are as a person – how you present yourself, what your interests are and a dose of your personality.We’ve broken out the following examples into types of effective video resumes – the “About Me” and the “Hire Me”. Use them as creative inspiration for crafting your own.About Me Video ResumesGraphic designer Wenzhu Wei effectively uses his graphic design skills to showcase his work experience and personal history:In “A Dream Job Would Be Nice” Mark Leruste uses an interview format combined with press clippings, photos and humorous b-roll to inform viewers of his work history and favorite things. The video concludes on a more serious tone, where Mark explains why he is an ideal candidate for a professional position. The high production value of the video shows his ability to produce quality work.Motion graphics artist Antonin Waterkeyn shows he’s got great design skills and injects a bit of edgy humor to showcase his personality:A video resume may seem a bit out of the ordinary for a software developer, but the uniqueness of that approach is what Nick Belling is going for with this video. Nick shares his academic accomplishments, professional projects and uses YouTube overlays to give viewers quick links to his written resume and portfolio – a nice touch.Juan Salvo is a leader in the color grading industry and his video reel surely speaks to that. Although the reel is more focused on Juan’s work (and less about who he is as a person) we’ve included it in the list because of it’s unique approach. The video opens with Juan’s voiceover and shots of him at work. Showing the process behind the work is one way to really make your own reel stand out. This example is really well executed.Hire Me Video ResumeLooking to be hired for a specific position? The following video resumes are aimed at specific employer. The amount of time and effort that goes into creating a targeted Hire Me video may well pay off if you’re applying for your dream position.When Premiumbeat blogger Aaron Williams applied for a video production position with a church they asked him to make a :60 second video telling them why he should be hired. The result successfully showcases Aaron’s proficiency at shooting and editing. You’ll see him video editing with Final Cut Pro, the same software he was being hired to use – good move, Aaron! Amazingly, it took him only 6 hours to create it.Jonas Mosesson had his heart set on working for award winning design firm, Buck. He made the following video to give the folks at Buck insight into his talent and personality. Unfortunately, he reports that the job wasn’t offered…but with his skills and creative approach we’re sure they’ll be other great things coming his way in the future.Want to work for Vimeo? The logical approach then would be to make a video. That’s exactly what Stephen Niebauer did…and it worked.The most elaborate of the videos in this list, this Hire Me video by Matthew Epstein is a plea to the Google product team for a position with the company. Matthew’s approach showcases his humor and is presented with top notch production quality. Additionally, Matthew created a website to tie-in to his job seeking efforts. As a result of this work, Matthew is now employed by Google.If you want to work for Jon Stewart, your application better be funny. That’s definitely the approach Croatian comedian Ivan Saric took when creating this video resume for a correspondent position with The Daily Show.Video Resume: What NOT To DoIf you’re going to give your own video resume a shot, see what not to do in this video spoof created by Canadian job search website This one had us cracking up.One final note on video resumes…Each of the video resume creators above have a personal website.

Be sure to share your website in your video resume, where employers can go to find out even more info about you and make contact. After all, isn’t that what it’s all about?last_img read more


Sunny Leone dolls up in gold

first_imgThe ‘Baby Doll’ of Bollywood, Sunny Leone, was busy scorching the runway as the showstopper for designer and Bigg Boss 3 contestant Rohit Verma as he launched his latest bridal wear collection at a fashion show in Mumbai on Monday evening.In his latest collection, Verma’s range of cocktail wear and ensembles for nuptial functions was an overkill of colours and print that left the audience overwhelmed by the combinations.Bright festive hues, floral embroidery and a heavy helping of sheen were the overall temper of the collection.The show, however, still managed its share of applause when the Ragini MMS 2 star sashayed down the ramp in a gold- andred wedding ball gown with embroidery and feathers on the borders. Embellished elbow gloves completed the starlet’s ensemble, who, nevertheless, carried off the look with a radiant smile, kohled eyes, peach lipstick and a slightly messy hair up- do.Other familiar faces to grace the ramp were Leone’s husband Daniel Webber who looked smart in a tartan bandhgala and white jodhpurs and black lace- ups, and former actress Koena Mitra who sported an ornate maroon- and- gold lehenga skirt with a sleeveless mesh and embroidery top.Sunny poses for the shutterbugs in style.Recently crowned Miss India Worldwide 2014 Monica Gill was also present at the event. The US- born graduate from Boston, who bagged the coveted title last week in Abu Dhabi, UAE, cut a pretty picture in a fitted white gown with her winning crown adorning her hair and her sash proudly displayed.Television actress and Rohit’s Bigg Boss housemate Kamya Punjabi, model Jesse Randhawa and husband Sandeep Soparkar, Daisy Shah and Rashmi Desai also strutted down the ramp for the designer.advertisementlast_img read more

The selectors however, didn’t want to use the term ‘dropped’ for the talismanic figure but evidences were enough for the people in know to conclude so.Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Rohit was naturally flooded with questions regarding Dhoni’s absence and he said that the former captain’s experience will be missed but it also means that Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik can show what they are capable of.”Dhoni has been such a massive player for us, over the years. His experience in the middle will be missed but again Rishabh (Pant) and Dinesh (Karthik) have great opportunity to come and perform and show what they are capable of as well. It gives them an opportunity to express themselves,” Rohit told on the eve of the game.READ – No record safe the way Virat Kohli is batting: Sunil GavaskarRohit also said that the three-match series also gives them an opportunity to test out India’s bench strength ahead of the World Cup that will be played in May-July next year in England and Wales.advertisement”We cannot go into the World Cup with limited resources.

I have enjoyed captaincy whenever I have got an opportunity and it does bring in a sense of responsibility when you lead the side you always want to lead from the front.”READ – Kohli, Rohit part of meeting where Dhoni was dropped. What lies ahead for ex-captain?However, the 30-year-old has his priorities clear and wants to help the team as a batsman first and then comes his captaincy.”I do understand that more so I am a player first, then a captain. My job as a player of the squad is to go out there and do well for the team. Captaincy is something I have enjoyed for the last few years.”I am still a stand-in captain and of course whenever I have led IPL team, I have enjoyed my time. It has made me understand my game a lot better and made me understand my teammates better,” Rohit said.advertisementREAD – MS Dhoni not dropped: Virat Kohli backs ex captain after T20I snubWest Indies have had India’s number in T20s recently and the visitors have won all the previous four encounters between the sides including the semi-final defeat at the Eden Gardens in the World T20s in 2016.And captain Rohit is aware of the challenges ahead.”They are a dangerous team. They are one of the strongest sides in the world when it comes to T20s. We have seen that in the past. The way the approach this format in particular… We cannot forget all that as a team,” Rohit said on the eve of their match.”They have more experience. It’s a format they enjoy the most and they have had a lot of success as well. They will be a strong opposition without doubt.”It’s not going to be easy for us just to go there and win. We have to play our best cricket to beat them. The focus will be on our team rather than what they do as a team. We do understand what they bring to the table,” Rohit signed off.The three T20Is woll be played in Kolkata (November 4), Lucknow (November 6) and Chennai (November 11).last_img read more

We gave them the chance to do what they came to do.“After that, if you were anxious or nervous, you will be more so.

Governor says Waterloo also hit by water shortage says ball in PNP

first_img Water Undertaking Unit Exercise in Grand Turk a Success Related Items:governor beckingham, hon. robert hall, reverse osmosis, water shortage, waterloo CFO recommends bypass of Cabinet & House of Assembly for $2.1 million spending Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 27 Aug 2015 – Meanwhile, the Governor tells Magnetic Media that Waterloo is also suffering water shortage issues; the question to the Governor was posed by us after a recommendation in the House of Assembly that it should be checked on. The Speaker, Hon Robert Hall expressed curiosity about whether or not the Governor’s home and office is suffering the same water flow issues as other areas of Grand Turk. In that reply to Magnetic Media, we were told specifically that: “You asked about water issues at Waterloo. Waterloo has, in fact, suffered serious water supply problems on occasions over the past two years.” We also asked about why the CFO turned down the Cabinet’s request to get money to fix the reverse osmosis plant, and was informed that, and I quote: “I understand that the matter rests with the Ministry of Infrastructure, Housing and Planning which has yet to identify the recurrent costs associated with running the plant once it is operational.” HE’s office said we should direct further inquiries about the RO plant and its yearly expense to service Grand Turk to the Ministry; and we have. Up to news time, we await a formal reply. Recommended for you Vehicle Accident Claims Lifelast_img read more

Newer buildings show minimal damage after California earthquakes

first_img AP Newer buildings show minimal damage after California earthquakes Posted: July 11, 2019 AP, LOS ANGELES (AP) — The two Southern California desert communities rocked by last week’s powerful earthquakes may have sustained as little damage as they did because they have no tall buildings and many of the homes in one are fairly new and were built to stricter earthquake standards.California’s Seismic Safety Commission Chairman Michael Gardner said during the agency’s Thursday meeting that the tallest building he knows of in the Mojave Desert towns of Ridgecrest and Trona is the three-story Ridgecrest hospital.The region was struck by a magnitude 6.4 earthquake on July 4, followed by a 7.1 temblor the next day.Ridgecrest, whose 28,000 residents include many who work at the nearby China Lake Naval Weapons Center, is about 150 miles (241.4 kilometers) east of Los Angeles.The nearby mining town of Trona, with a population of about 2,000, was harder hit. Commissioners noted many of its buildings are older.Authorities estimated the damage to both towns at about $100 million, although that could go up as buildings continue to be evaluated.Commissioner Kit Miyamoto said that as inspectors entered some buildings they discovered serious damage to ceilings and other areas that they couldn’t see from the outside.“Three buildings from the exterior appeared to be fine and probably safe for entry, but upon further investigation the roofs had actually collapsed,” he said, adding inspectors may find others in that condition.Gardner said commissioners are also waiting for more information from the Naval base, where security is tight.Miyamoto noted that many of Ridgecrest’s homes were built in the 1980s and ’90s of more earthquake-resistant materials.“As we know, newer California houses hold up really well,” he said.That was not so much the case in Trona, where many fireplace chimneys collapsed and other damage was recorded.Buildings flooded when water heaters toppled over and ruptured gas lines sparked fires, and roads, highways and sidewalks also buckled.Trona also lost all of its water for several days when a pipeline carrying it from Ridgecrest ruptured. It was restored Thursday, but San Bernardino County spokesman David Wert said a “boil order” remains in place while water lines are being flushed. Meanwhile, free water was being distributed to residents.Other utilities to both towns have been restored, and Gardner said a local assistance center opened in Ridgecrest on Thursday.The commission itself plans to meet in Ridgecrest next month.No one in the area was killed, although authorities believe the quake may have taken the life of a man in the small Nevada town of Pahrump, 180 miles (289.7 kilometers) away.Troy Ray, 55, of Pahrump was killed when his jack slipped as he was working underneath his car. The shaking from one of the quakes felt from Las Vegas to Los Angeles might have caused the jack to slip, although authorities noted they couldn’t be sure.Separately Thursday, California Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara and California Earthquake Authority CEO Glenn Pomeroy urged residents statewide to consider buying earthquake insurance that they said could be tailored to meet homeowners’ and renters’ individual needs and pocketbooks.Contrary to some reports, they said the insurance is available everywhere in California. But new policies won’t cover damage resulting from aftershocks related to the series of quakes that began July 4 until 15 days have elapsed.

The consensus of the gathering is that change can be difficult, but that the confusion that accompanied the early days of the first phase of a three phase downtown mobility plan involving a 9 square mile network,  has lessened considerably.Coalition Executive Director Andy Hanshaw told us, “There’s been a lot of reporting about confusion because it was new.  This plan was passed back in 2017, it’s now coming to fruition.”  Hanshaw’s reference to 2017 addresses criticism, from businesses and business associations, including those in North Park, where there’s a similar plan for such lanes, that all of this wasn’t properly vetted and is benefittng only a few.“I know there’s been talk of a loss of parking,” he continued.  “Actually there’s been a net gain, and now there’s space for bicyclists to be safe.  So it’s for the City’s future, tripling the population downtown, for people to have more mobility choices and to get out of their cars.”As for the safety aspects, he says he’s already noted more people taking advantage of the lanes, including scooter riders.  “If you build it they will come and I firmly believe that,”  he added.KUSI’s Ed Lenderman spoke with San Diego City Councilmember Chris Ward about why he supports adding protected bikeways and removing parking spaces from our region’s neighborhood.Ward believes “choice riders” currently drive to work but would rather bike if there was a safe way to do it. He told KUSI that San Diego would see more bikers if there were safer options. Lenderman’s full interview with Ward is below. Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more
