What is the introduction video?
Your introduction video is where you can introduce yourself to talent seekers on Tallo. It can simply be you sharing who you are, what you’re interested in, and what your future plans are.
Adding an introduction video is a wonderful way to showcase your personality and other facets of yourself that normally stay hidden behind your screen.
Ready to create your introduction video? Here are a few tips to help you get started:
Keep it short
A good window of time to shoot for is 30-60 seconds. You’d be surprised how much information you can share in under a minute! It also encourages viewers of your video to watch it in its entirety.
DIY or ask for help
There is nothing wrong with recording your video yourself, but if you have a friend who can record your video for you it may be a bit easier.
Find a well-lit, quiet spot
If possible, find somewhere with little to no background noise and a good amount of natural light. Bonus points if you can find a simple background, like a wall.
Start with a smile
If you’re unsure how to start your video just start with a smile and go from there.
What to talk about
Start by introducing yourself and telling everyone what you’re currently doing (e.g., school, job, certification).
Then, pick one or two of these topics to include:
- A professional accomplishment you’re proud of
- Things you enjoy working on in your free time
- Your favorite past work experience
- One or two professional skills you’ve learned
- Your favorite class and what you loved about it
If you like, you can throw all of the above recommendations out the window and do your own thing! As long as you feel comfortable and are representing yourself the way you want to, we’re fine with that.
