Tips for self-filming:

  • Use a computer with webcam first if possible before using a phone
  • Be sure your camera on the computer or phone is at eye level
  • Choose a quiet environment for filming your video
  • Never set up with a window or bright light behind you. Try to face the window or light sources so your face is well lit
  • When using your phone be sure to hold it horizontal (landscape), not vertical (portrait)
  • Your video should be 1-2 minutes
  • Include the following:
    • What work-related skills and traits do you have?
    • What past work experience do you have? Feel free to also speak to education, training, or volunteer experience, if applicable.
    • How have you overcome adversity in your life and how has this helped you become a better employee?
