Video cover letter sample from Robert De Niro
An all-time favourite for inspiration
This is an old one yet one of the best examples of a video CV or cover letter.
Robert De Niro shoots a video resume for an intern job in the movie “The Intern”
- He dresses up professionally
- Sets-up his camera on a stand
- Finds a good spot in this house
- His pitch is perfect – why he wants the job, what are his strengths and what he would bring to the job
- His screen presence is charismatic – shows aptitude and personality, which is not possible with a text resume.
At i12WRK, we encourage job seekers to upload a video cover letter and go all out to give their best shot to get the job. Also, we have seen that candidates with video cover letter have a better likelihood of getting shortlisted.
P.S: Do watch the movie for some serious inspiration on your video cover letter script, also there are typical interview questions and Ben’s (Robert De Niro) incredible attitude as a senior citizen intern.
