…Or you’ll at least make an impression on the recruiter that will last till the end of time. We’re not talking about that classic video CV, you know that one where you sit in front of the camera and explain your typical CV without polishing it up at all. Right now, video CVs are a current trend and any version that you dare to put into practice will fully classify you for the professional league. But these video CVs have nothing to do with that. I’m referring to little lethal capsules, emotionally-speaking, that have become a social phenomenon. They are circulating around the social networks at whim (they seem to be married to the “Share” button) and provoke empathy in just a few minutes. You’re sure to be able to get ideas from each of these video CVs!

Heads up! All of these video CVs are in Spanish. Half of them have English subtitles, so don’t worry! But we thought it was a cool idea to show you how other countries use their creative minds to land a job. Remember, it’s always a good idea to learn about and share cultures!
