Hi, I'm Fallen from and on behalf of Expert Village I'm going to answer some frequently asked questions about how to make a video resume. So, how should I dress for my video resume? Appearance is an important factor in a video resume. Now that doesn't mean that only really attractive people can benefit. It does mean that a professional presence is required. Make sure you dress appropriate for the job industry that you're pursuing. If possible do some research into the industry standard practice, is it a very professional atmosphere, is a suit and tie required? Remember, the different industries and even different geographical locations have different definitions of professional attire. On the east coast for example, sales professionals are very formal, rarely will you see anyone go into a call without a suit, tie and jacket, even in the dead of summer. On the contrary, on the west coast, many sales professionals wear attire that more closely resembles a professional golfer, rather than a sales rep. Khaki's and a polo shirt are often considered dressed up. Always err on the side of too professional if you're uncertain. No one will discount you for looking too nice. If you create a video resume in a jeans and t-shirt you're probably only hurting yourself.
