JOBMA Video Resume FAQs
JOBMA offers a powerful job search engine that allows Job Seekers to interact with Employers in a way not possible through existing job search sites. With over ten years of experience in the job sourcing industry, JOBMA combines our knowledge into an online experience aimed to ease the process and costs associated with getting a job and hiring an employee. Having experience with many people in need of employment or looking for a change, we understand that Job Seekers need to be more than just a resume. JOBMA gives Job Seekers a high level of personal branding by combining their traditional resume with a personalized Video Resume and social media integration. This gives Employers an opportunity to "meet" candidates before bringing them in for an interview, and gives Job Seekers a competitive advantage in a flooded marketplace.
JOBMA allows Job Seekers to enrich their ability to reach Employers in a unique and meaningful fashion. In our opinion differentiation is the key to getting an Employer's attention, and therefore getting a job. Through Video Resumes, JOBMA offers the ability for Job Seekers to present themselves directly to Employers, sharing their personality and experience in a short well thought out video pitch. JOBMA streamlines the hiring process for Employers by eliminating the stress, guess work, and error from filing through resumes, creating a better company fit by allowing Employers to 'meet' job candidates before the interview. JOBMA creates flexibility with video interview capabilities and gives Employers confidence in always making the best hire.
The best part about JOBMA is that it costs Job Seekers absolutely nothing! JOBMA hosts a Job Seeker's profile, including resumes and Video Resumes, for free.
Jobma improves your hiring process in two critical ways. Your screening process is improved by using our pre recorded video interview solution. And our live video interview process decreases your travel costs and increases the geographical radius you can recruit candidates from. You can even have your entire hiring team collaborate on the interview process using Jobma. Jobma is designed to incorporate seamlessly into your current hiring process.
Video interviewing brings accountability to your hiring process and being able to keep recordings of your interview process also helps address discrimination related issues. Studies* also show that minority applicants actually prefer video interviews over traditional paper resumes. And since video interviews don’t require travelling they also reduce geographical discrimination and give you a broader talent pool to select from.
Jobma was built around the ideas of collaboration and teamwork. We understand that hiring in most companies is often a team effort. That is why we give you powerful tools to schedule and co ordinate interviews. Our platform also has evaluation tools built in so that your Team can share their evaluations and co ordinate better with each other. We also offer video recordings for all your interviews so even if a member of your team misses out on an interview; they have the option of watching it on demand later.
Skype is a great tool but it’s very limited in its scope if you use it for your hiring process. There is no way to screen candidates by setting up pre recorded video interviews in Skype. You also would need a separate tool to record and keep track of interview recordings if you use Skype. And unlike Skype, Jobma lets you give candidates a branded experience by putting your company front and centre. Skype also doesn’t let you manage interview schedules, co ordinate evaluations etc. In short, Skype is a great communication tool but it’s not really a great hiring tool.
YES! A recent survey* shows that not only candidates like video interviews; they actually prefer it to traditional interview methods. Video interviews reduce the cost and stress associated with traditional interviews. They are also a great time saver and also incredibly convenient. Candidates love all the benefits that video interviews provide.
We understand that sometimes people don’t have access to a webcam. That is why we came up with the Jobma App that can be used on a mobile device. So candidates can take part in video interviews with their mobile devices and tablets that already have cameras built in. That means that they can even use Jobma on the go. The Jobma app is available on Android and iOS devices. It’s free to download and incredibly easy to use.
To get started, click the 'Get Started for Free' green button on the middle of the Employer page. Once you start filling out your information, JOBMA will guide you through the rest of the registration and into your company's profile creation.
Job postings are not limited. We encourage all Employers to post as many jobs as they have available.
Although it is not required, it is highly recommended that Employers post a video. A company video pitch will give Job Seekers a closer and more in-depth look at your company. The video pitch could be a piece of promotional material, a video tour, or a short speech from an executive or hiring manager. Our Job Seekers like to learn about the companies they are applying for, and adding a video pitch gives them a deeper sense of what your company is about.
When you login to your profile, there will be a tab along the right-hand side of the screen called "Manage Jobs". Click on this tab to view a list of all the jobs you have posted. From this screen, you will also be able to add, edit, and delete job postings. If you want to view the candidates that applied for a posted position, click "View" next to the appropriate job posting. This will pull up a list of Job Seekers that have applied for the posted position.

Although you are not required to, we highly recommend that you do upload your resume to give Employers a more complete look at your skills and work history. Your profile sets the stage, your video pitch tells the story, and your resume acts as an appendix filled with more detailed information.
Yes, your Video Resume is what sets you apart from other job applicants. On other job websites, Employers have to filter through hundreds of written resumes. On JOBMA, your Video Resume gives you the opportunity to make a unique first impression with Employers, putting you on the right path to landing a job.
For only $5 per month, Job Seekers that purchase a Premium JOBMA account can upload two additional (three total) Video Resumes.
1. Treat your Video Resume like an interview. You should dress appropriately, be well groomed and of course be prepared. Choose your location wisely to ensure good lighting and a background that looks clean, neat, and professional. Bedrooms and coffee shops typically don't make for the best locations to create a Video Resume.
2. Prepare your Video Resume content in advance. It's better to have a script than to just turn on the camera and try to 'wing it'. Try to use your Video Resume script as a general guideline rather than reading directly from it.
Fill out your JOBMA video profile completely and honestly. Also, be sure to utilize keywords associated with your top skills, because Employers will use these to search for resumes and Video Resumes that match the job positions they are trying to fill.
