Embrace the Industry 4.0 with Visumé
As part of the Careers Advisory Service’s Get Ready Get Hired programme, CAS has invited Graduan to introduce the concept of a Visumé (Video Resumé).
According to Graduan, since we are towards the era of digitalization with the emphasis of Industry 4.0, the employers these days are open to the concept of a Visumé as it is an alternative to the traditional one sheet resumé. They also stated some examples of the companies that have started asking for video resumé such as Maxis, Shell and RHB Bank.
“From an employer’s perspective, to have ‘met’ the applicant in video format even before an interview would be vastly advantageous for the applicant.” Ms. Fatin Yusoff, Senior PR & Event Executive from Graduan said.
However, for a successful Visumé, employers would usually take note of a few key aspects.
“In that short clip, do express yourself freely and professionally to promote good body language. Do practice clarity and conciseness when conveying a message and just be you.” She added.
Overall, the event was informative for the students to experiment with different ways to impress potential employers by approaching a task in a unique manner.
