"DREAMJOBBING WITH..." INTRODUCTION VIDEO
INSPIRE STUDENTS AROUND THE WORLD BY ANSWERING 5 QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR CAREER.
YOUR INSIGHT COULD CHANGE A STUDENT'S LIFE AND HELP THEM REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL.
In the DreamJobbing online workshop, students are encouraged to connect with local professionals to gain valuable knowledge about their dream careers from real people. This strategy has been extremely successful and beneficial for the students conducting interviews.
However, we want to create a series that is more widely available for all of our students. That is why we need your help!
By filming your answers to these 5 simple questions you can help 100's of students learn about your career path and what it takes to be successful in that career. Please join us and help our students find their dream jobs!
1. What was your first job out of school?
2. What do you do now and what is your average day like?
3. What is your advice to get into that career?
4. What are your tips for having success in your field?
5. What are your favorite and least favorite parts of your job?
Find a quiet and professional-looking area where no one else is around to record your video interview. To avoid looking like a shadow, be sure to have light facing you and not shining from behind you. You might also want to consider having two lamps on either side of your face to brighten your appearance on camera. It’s also important that you position yourself in the center of the webcam where your head, neck, and shoulders can be seen.
Test your webcam and microphone. If you are using a computer to complete your one-way, make sure to verify the microphone you are using before recording. Additionally, you should always play back your first recorded answer to make certain that your audio and webcam are working properly.
If you are not pleased with the quality of the video or sound when you play it back, we recommend trying the SparkHire app for iPhone or Android. You can download the app at: https://www.sparkhire.com/mobile-app
