Hi Huneybees,

Nowadays, everywhere you go, I guess the word "facebook" pops up almost every minute right? There's been talk about being careful with the pictures you show as they might affect your career right?

Now, there's PREVVIEW - Asia's First Interactive Video Job Portal. They have a dedicated profile page for jobseekers like in Facebook.
You can express your true self professionally and effectively. Prevview enables you to give a voice and personality to your paper resumes, through cutting edge video streaming technology.
Instead of copy and paste or attach your resume in emails, speak directly to your potential employers through your visumés and "impress" them into hiring you.
PREVVIEW even allows you to back up your visumés with downloadable important documents such as cover letter, resume, porfolio and reference letter.

One other thing that I liked about PREVVIEW is that there's in-depth information about the Employers. PREVVIEW has dedicated profile pages for the employers as well, so that the jobseekers are able to know more about the job they are applying for. Everything you need from the HR Video, to Written Profiles and comprehensively described Job Postings to Getting Hired Tips and Q&A can be found under one roof via the Employer Profile Page.

And not to worry, all these important information are all being protected by PREVVIEW's privacy settings.-->

1) All profiles are viewable only by registered Employers and their technology ensures that Employers will not be able to save your video to their computers.

2) Jobseekers have the option of keeping their profile entirely private, where employers can't search for you.but you can still browse through Employer profiles and apply for your dream job.

3) The "Block" feature lets you insert keywords that will block views from everyone associated with them. For e.g. PREVVIEW is your employer and you do not wish for them to see that you have a profile on the portal, you can simply enter "PREVVIEW" as a keyword and they will no be able to view your profile anymore.


Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The Visumé Wars Have Begun!

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The Visumé Wars Have Begun! has declared an official Visumé War in Singapore. We call upon everyone from the age of 18-35* to step into the professional battle field, in a quest to differentiate yourselves – it’s talent vs talent, Visumé vs Visumé!

Unlike any other video showdown, this war appeals to every jobseeker’s most basic struggles. That is, to stand out from the sea of jobseekers with similar talents and credentials and, to prevent themselves from being lost under a stack of paper resumes.

Entry is simple and the prizes, amazing. Whether you are looking to get your hands on a beautiful iPad2 or a job position [or both!] with our participating partners, this is competition for you.

The power to conquer is in your hands!

All you need to do is put together a Visume – what we at Prevview call Video Resumes – that will show and tell us why you would make a great employee. You can sing, dance, rap, produce a movie or even sell a brick. Be it creative or professional, do it your way and boldly express your best self.

50 prizes to be won!**

43 participants from Category A and Category B who have received the highest People's Choice scores will receive $10,000 worth of attractive prizes. Seven out of all the participants the Special Category will be placed in amazing job positions at the participating company of their choice [Winners are subjected to the discretion of our participating partner].
