My favourite Visume on Prevview.com

Have you visited Prevview.com or watch any of the visumes on Prevview.com? Quite a number of people posted their resumes on Prevview.com

After viewing some of the visumes posted on http://www.prevview.com/visumewars/ , one of my favourite visumes is posted by Mr Cliff Neo.

He gives people the looks that he is confident from the way he dressed and speaks in his visumes. He can speak quite well and do put his name in the beginning of the video to intro himself and tell the viewers about himself and his strength.

Plain background is okay as it is not that distracting the viewer’s attention and give people the focus of looking at the person in the video, not at the background.

So are you interested to post your own visume on Prevview.com? Read my previous posts on Preview.com to find out more!

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The Visumé Wars Have Begun!

Prevview.com has declared an official Visumé War in Singapore. We call upon everyone from the age of 18-35* to step into the professional battle field, in a quest to differentiate yourselves – it’s talent vs talent, Visumé vs Visumé!

Unlike any other video showdown, this war appeals to every jobseeker’s most basic struggles. That is, to stand out from the sea of jobseekers with similar talents and credentials and, to prevent themselves from being lost under a stack of paper resumes.

Entry is simple and the prizes, amazing. Whether you are looking to get your hands on a beautiful iPad2 or a job position [or both!] with our participating partners, this is competition for you.

The power to conquer is in your hands!

 All you need to do is put together a Visume – what we at Prevview call Video Resumes – that will show and tell us why you would make a great employee. You can sing, dance, rap, produce a movie or even sell a brick. Be it creative or professional, do it your way and boldly express your best self.

50 prizes to be won!**

43 participants from Category A and Category B who have received the highest People’s Choice scores will receive $10,000 worth of attractive prizes. Seven out of all the participants the Special Category will be placed in amazing job positions at the participating company of their choice [Winners are subjected to the discretion of our participating partner]. More information on Category A & B, please look below for details or visit http://www.prevview.com/visumewars/index.php/prizes for more details.

CATEGORY A
Visumé War Colonels

I want a Job and nifty Gadgets too!

In this special category, the war zone is split into 2 parts for judging.

Part 1: People’s Choice – This is based on the combined score which is calculated by the sum of “Votes” and “Views”.

Part 2: Employer’s Choice – Job winners are handpicked by our discerning participating partners only. There are 5 different industries and 7 different job positions to be won!

CATEGORY B
Regular Visumé War Soldiers

(For those who opted out of winning a job)

Give me a Gadget!* (no job but only prizes)

* Category A and B are comprised of shared prizes. i.e. There is only one each of the Top 3 prizes + 20 dining vouchers, and 1 pair each of GV Movie tickets for 20 to be won . Note that if the Employer’s choice concurs with the People’s choice, the winner is then entitled to 2 prizes.

Prizes such as iPad2 (64GB, Wifi & 3G), Samsung Tab (Wifi & 3G), Canon Digital IXUS 220 HS (12.1MP), Dining Vouchers Worth $20 and Golden Village Movie Vouchers are up for grabs!

Your outstanding soft skills and vibrant personalities will no longer have to be dormant within a piece of paper. Prevview enables you to give a voice and personality to your paper resumes, through cutting edge video streaming technology.

You no longer need to attach various documents to your potential employer. Speak to them directly through your visumés and let them know why you should be hired. Back your visumés up with downloadable important and relevant documents such as cover letter, resume, portfolio, and reference letters .

2) Two-Pronged Approach To Job Search

A) Search for Jobs with our comprehensive search function and apply immediately. Because our Employers are provided with unlimited job postings, jobseekers can rest assure that they will get the most updated job vacancies in town.

B) Be headhunted by registered Employers – All employers are provided with the Search capability where they can search for and request to interview candidates.

3)  In-Depth Information about Employers

We all know the importance of research before going for an interview. We also know how important it is to understand a job scope before applying for a job – no one wants to come off as unsure or be taken by surprise during an interview.

To enable jobseekers to be as well prepared as possible, Prevview has created dedicated profile pages for employers as well! Everything you need from the HR Video, to Written Profiles and comprehensively described Job Postings to Getting Hired Tips and Q&A can be found under one roof, the Employer Profile Page.

4) Visumé Guide

With our tech world ablaze with fancy gadgets, Prevview assures all jobseekers that making a visumé takes only 5 simple steps.  Prevview.com is well furbished with a comprehensive video guide as well as Visumé tips and articles to help you along the way.

You can visit http://www.prevview.com/index.php/visume/visume_tool for some examples.

5) Privacy Settings

A) All profiles are viewable only by registered Employers. What’s more, our technology ensures that Employers will not be able to save your video on their computers.

B) You have the option of keeping your profile entirely private [employers cannot search for you, but you can browse through employer profiles and still apply for jobs!].

C) The “Block” feature lets you insert keywords that will block views from everyone associated with them. For e.g. Prevview is your employer and you do not wish for them to see that you have a profile on the portal. Simply enter Prevview as a keyword and any Employer associated with Prevview will not be able to view your profile!
