CareerBrandVideos™ for Executives, Job Seekers and Professionals
Why you need CareerBrandVideos™ for job search and career-long personal branding
Now, more than ever before, it’s time to embrace videos that express your personal brand when you’re job hunting . . . and for overall career management.
- People hire people they feel they know and like.
- Personal branding helps them get a feel for who you are and what you’re like to work with.
- Video gets your personal brand messaging across much better than plain text.
And CareerBrandVideos™ are one of the best ways to showcase what makes you a good fit for the employers you want to work for . . . while improving your online visibility, which is so important now.
What makes CareerBrandVideos™ different and better for most people than other kinds of video?
CareerBrandVideos™ are an exciting and innovative customized Done-For-You video system using animation with kinetic typography. Figures and text move fluidly to capture attention and tell your story more vividly. They are specifically designed for personal branding in job search and career.
- These videos do a much better job of showcasing your good-fit qualities than videos with a job candidate reading from her/his boring resume on camera, like with video resumes.
- They are professionally-created, unlike with homemade videos or DIY video platforms.
- And they’re reasonably priced. A set of 3 CareerBrandVideos™ costs 4-5 times less than the price of just one video by a video production company.

We created a new and better kind of video system
At the inception of CareerBrandVideos™ we searched for video platforms and creators offering the kind of videos that would work well for personal branding for job search and career. We came up empty-handed except for video resumes, self-produced videos, DIY platforms and video production companies, none of which are great choices.
Clearly, there was a need for affordable, high-quality videos, created by professionals, that don’t have the problems associated with the other options.
We are 3 experts in our fields (job search, career, and video creation) who designed CareerBrandVideos™ to fill that void.
Dazzling Done-For-You (DFY) videos without you on camera
With CareerBrandVideos™ you don’t appear on camera, fidgety and uncomfortable, and your voice is not used. Introverts LOVE CareerBrandVideos™!
You don’t need to figure out what kind of information should go into your 3 videos, like when you use a DIY video platform. You provide the right information (we’ve included our proprietary worksheet to help you with that). We do the rest and we know how to make you shine!
And you don’t need to know ANYTHING about creating video. You never touch complicated video technology. We do all the video work using content you provide.
Expert guidance throughout the process . . . and beyond
Our CareerBrandVideos™ proprietary process and considerable combined expertise guide what goes into your videos. Most people don’t know the right video formula for what should and should NOT be included . . . but WE do. You can be sure that nothing damaging will be included.
And you’ll get our in depth ebook, Video Promotion Strategy and How-To Guide, a step-by-step guide on how and where to use your videos for maximum impact. You can start getting results right away, building your brand and online visibility.
Crafted to fit the preferred short format of about 1 minute
Short videos are memorable and convey a lot of information fast. They capture and hold attention in a short attention span world.
Viewers are far more likely to watch a short video through to the end. Studies show that 5% stop watching after one minute. After two minutes, you lose 60% of viewers. And some social media platforms do not accept videos longer than 1 minute.
Better and safer for job search than video resumes
A poorly done video resume – not scripted well, the subject looks uncomfortable and unprofessional, the overall look is homemade and clumsy – can keep you from getting interviews and embarrass you.
Designed to be used throughout your career – whether you’re job searching or not – CareerBrandVideos™ are not job-searchy like video resumes. If you’re like most people, you need to keep your employer and others from knowing you’re looking for a new job. These videos won’t blatantly “out” the fact that you’re job hunting.
But they WILL help you get found online and stay highly visible throughout your career.

3 professionally-crafted videos give a feel for your personality and help you stand out
CareerBrandVideos™ are a vibrant showcase for the best you have to offer. They are captivatingly appealing, with movement, color and other compelling features. They focus on the things that differentiate you. They generate chemistry about you.
You get 3 different personal branding videos:
√ Subject Matter Expertise – a close look at your go-to area of expertise
√ Personality – who you are, how you operate, how you add value
√ Testimonials – what the people who work with you, and know your value the best, have to say about you.
You can always order more of them and build an even stronger online presence.
Because so few people use this kind of video for job search and career, CareerBrandVideos™ will position you as someone who is VERY savvy with the new world of work. And they can help dispel age issues for 50+ job seekers.
