Boost your hotel career with video applications – How to

Hong Kong – 10 April 2017 –
Video applications offers advantages not only for training prospects: HR managers and recruiters benefit from the authentic recordings and can assess the potential trainees’ suitability for company culture more quickly and more accurately.

Tips on video applications:

Technology

  • Use camera app from mobile phone or app “Movie Pro”
  • horizontal format
  • microphone
  • LED light
  • selfie stick or even better: tripod

Content

  • Clear pronunciation
  • Short sentences
  • Only main sentences, no auxiliary sentences
  • Clear message:
    A) Who am I
    B) What can I do
    C) What have I done already
    D) What do I want
    E) Why should you hire me now
    (Advertising principles “AIDA” – Attract, Interest, Desire, Action)
  • Practice your supervisor several times in front of a mirror
  • Use a selfie-stick
    Choose a close-up: your face should be clearly recognizable

Length

  • Ideal would be 30 seconds, which is very tight – max 45-60 seconds
