Feature: PreVView Visume Wars

Did the title catch your attention? I hope it did cos in this blogpost, I’ll be introducing a new online platform specially designed for job seeking individuals!

A little background on PreVView:
Prevview is the first portal in Asia to utilize Visumés – Video Resumes – in an interactive manner that breaks the barrier between employers and jobseekers.

Being an integrated communication platform, Prevview also enables two-way communication between jobseekers and employers. Ultimately, Prevview strives to be Asia’s premier interactive job portal for jobseekers and recruiters, allowing them to find the perfect fit, in a more personalised and efficient manner, ensuring no valuable talent goes undiscovered.

1) Dedicated Profile Page – Just like Facebook and it’s Free!
Imagine having a jobseeker profile where you can express your true self professionally and effectively. 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.

Here’s a screenshot of how the site looks like:

I like how the site is designed like some world of warcraft-ish game!! Definitely adds some fun element to the otherwise boring job seeking process.

PreVView Visume Competition

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].

So, answer the declaration for war now – Prevview is providing you the weapon and you just have to bring it!

*The competition is open to anyone in any country. However, collection of prizes will be done in the Singapore
Prevview office.

**Please refer to our Assessment Criteria for more information.

Because this is a video resume, unlike normal written, there is more things to take note of when you craft your video. Here are some tips that might be helpful:

1) Remember to talk confidently when taking the video. First impression counts and no employer would want someone who’s not confident.
2) Ensure that your video is clear and environment is brightly lit. Again, presentation is really important.
3) Be creative!! Since this is a video resume, it is more alive than written resumes. So come up with all sorts of ideas that might help you to grab the attention of your employers. (Nothing too outrageous though!)

So think you’re up to the challenge?
