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, Seeking a Grad Role in Graphic Design or Architecture etc...
WHAT CAN I DO?
The hardest part of this video will be putting together your 15 second show-reel. You must have this ready to upload when you customise this video. If you don't have a show-reel, you can easily make one using a basic movie maker tool. In the example video we used images and simple transitions. The video must not be longer than 15 seconds, can't be larger than 30 MB and must not have any sound. Acceptable formats are AVI, MP4, MOV, FLV.
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.
