A few weeks ago my spouse who is in the marketing field announced that she would be going on an interview for a high level management position that she was interested in. Usually, she would put together a PowerPoint presentation in advance of an interview. However, she decided that she wanted to give this interview her all by creating a promotional video demonstrating her skills and accomplishments. As a classroom teacher, I use Animoto frequently with my students to create high quality video presentations detailing learning outcomes. So we worked with Animoto for a few hours and she created a great video for this interview. I am happy to report that the people she met with were very impressed and offered her the job.
Not only is Animoto great for classroom use, but that’s not all. You can use it as a link on your resume, cover letter or eportfolio at Portfoliogen. Using Animoto.com to embed your videos into your Portfoliogen eportfolio is another way stand out from the crowd and get that job!
