Why Video and Audio?
Video resumes are a powerful tool for building your professional identity. Video and audio introductions provide an opportunity to showcase your skills, accomplishments, career growth, and unique personality in a more engaging way. They allow potential employers, recruiters, or collaborators to get to know you on a more personal level and can help to build trust and establish a connection.
Sharing your story through video or audio also provides a way to demonstrate your communication skills, which are highly valued in many fields. They give a more comprehensive view of who you are as a professional, rather than relying solely on bland resumes and basic cover letters. Additionally, they allow you to stand out in a crowded job market and help you to differentiate yourself from the competition.
Finally, they can also give a more humanizing touch to your professional image and allow for career networking; video resumes allow recruiters, employers and collaborators to see you in a more relatable way, as a person and not just a set of bullet points.
Why do I need a professional brand?
Much like your personal brand, your professional brand is the image and reputation that you create for yourself in the professional world. It's how people perceive you and your abilities, and it can be an essential tool for building a successful career.
Building a professional brand is especially important in today’s economic environment as it can help you stand out in a crowded job market. It can also help you to establish connections with potential employers, recruiters, and mentors. Having a professional brand can also help you to identify your unique strengths and values, and align them with your career goals.
I was recently laid off, how can Heyo help me?
Receiving a shout-out or endorsement from someone you used to work with can be incredibly beneficial for someone who was recently laid off.
First, shout-outs and endorsements from former colleagues can provide third-party validation of your skills and abilities. They can demonstrate the impact you made in your previous roles and the value you brought to the organization. This can be especially important for someone who was recently laid off and may be concerned about how their departure will be perceived by potential employers.
Additionally, shout-outs and endorsements from former colleagues can also help to establish your professional reputation and build trust with potential employers. They can help to demonstrate that you are a skilled, reliable, and valuable employee. They can also give insight into how you work with others and what kind of impact you can make in an organization.
Lastly, shout-outs and endorsements from former colleagues can also help to expand your professional network, which can be especially valuable for someone who was recently laid off. They can help you to connect with potential employers and collaborators, and they can also help to open up new job opportunities that may not have been available otherwise.
Why would I use Heyo if I already have Linkedin?
Heyo is a career growth platform designed to help you stand out in new ways and showcase your professional story through short-form video, audio, text, and photo. Unlike LinkedIn, which is primarily a text-based platform, Heyo allows people to showcase their professional story with visual content.
One of the key advantages of Heyo over LinkedIn is that it allows candidates to create a more personal and human connection with potential employers, recruiters and network. By using Heyo as an online portfolio, people can communicate their personality, tone, and attitude which are not possible to convey through traditional resumes and profiles.
Another advantage of Heyo is that it allows professionals to receive shout-outs which are like endorsements from bosses, coworkers, friends, and mentors. These shout-outs can be a valuable asset in the job search process as they provide an additional layer of credibility and show that a person is a valuable asset to any team. Sure, Linkedin has recommendations and endorsements, but Heyo takes them to much higher levels.
Additionally, Heyo allows applicants to create a more dynamic and engaging portfolio of their work and experiences, which can be especially beneficial for people in creative fields such as design, photography, and video production.
