Helpful tips for each section of your video.
This section is very versatile. All the text you see in the white box is yours to customise. This can be a job title, like in the example provided. Or you can use it to communicate your situation, Studying xyz at the University of XYZ. Or it can tell your audience what you're looking for, Seeking a Marketing & Comm Position.
WHAT CAN I DO?
The hardest part of this video will be to find the right words for this section. We recommend writing it out a few times first to see what words work. For best results you should try to stick to a maximum of 26 characters per line and use all 4 lines. This can be a sentence like in the example or 4 bullet points.
It helps to try and think like the person you're sending it to. What are their needs? How can you word your pitch to ensure you touch on those needs? In the example, the focus was on delivering results. When someone is looking for a Marketer, their end goal is to get results from your work. If you're doing this for a specific job, make sure you include as much of the minimum selection criteria in your pitch as you can.

WHO INSPIRES ME?
You can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep. The same rings true when it comes to the people that inspire us. It's unlikely you are only inspired by two people in the world, so choose the two that will help your audience get a sense of what you care about.
This section is designed to give your audience a sense of your personality. There are three lines that scroll past in the video. You need to decide what each line will say. How would you describe yourself? Better yet, how do your friends describe you? It might be worth asking. You might be surprised.
Some example words to consider are:
PASSIONATE, METICULOUS, OUTGOING, ADVENTUROUS, CREATIVE, INNOVATIVE, MY FUN FRIEND, VIBRANT, ARTICULATE, BUBBLY, DRIVEN, COMPASSIONATE, ORGANISED, HIGH ACHIEVER, CHARISMATIC, DISCIPLINED, A PLANNER, A DOER, WITTY, ENERGETIC.
This section is pretty self explanatory. In the form you are provided with a space for your e-mail address. This can also be used for a website address if you would prefer.
You can find your LinkedIn address in your LinkedIn profile under contact info. If you haven't created a shortlink yet, now is the time. This can easily be created when you're there.
UPLOAD YOUR PHOTO
The size of the photo container is 550 x 550 pixels. In the event your photo is too big or you need to edit it in any way, just use a photo editing tool like Paint or iphoto to reduce the size or edit your photo. You can also use Canva.com to create a custom image for the exact dimensions required.
