One contest winner, Joseph Kim, a student at Penn State University, hopes his video
resume can land him his dream job as a technology consultant after graduation. “It’s an
innovative way to let people know what kind of person I actually am, not just who I am
on paper,” said Kim.
The other winners of Vault’s Video Resume Makeover Contest are Hannah Hall, a retail
store manager for a Fortune 500 company; Nicole McFarland, a real estate student; and
Ron Studley, a management consultant.
All four winners started off the morning of October 23rd with a head-to-toe makeover at
NYC’s famous Edris Salon to ensure they looked their professional best. After a
consultation with Vault’s resume experts, they were brought into Vault’s studios to film
their video resumes.
“A video resume is the next step, a new and different way to present yourself, to stand
out,” said Hannah Hall.
