How to write your own Video Editor resume?
1. Showcase what you worked on
Being in a creative industry, it is vital that you can provide recruiters with an expectation of what your creative skills are and what you can do with them. Therefore, including any references or links to where they can find and review any projects that you completed in the past is a great first step in building your resume. It will also make clear whether your “style” matches the vision for projects which your potential employer may be wanting to produce.
2. Point out any relevant experience
The difference between an average Video Editor and a great one is that the great one is able to prove they are more than just an expert at using editing software. The edits one makes to any audio-visual project have to make sense and they have to fulfill a purpose. With educational videos, that purpose is usually to keep viewers engaged. Hence, any previous experience which may have required you to take into account writing, storytelling, or any other creative input into your editing is pretty much a certain must.

3. Demonstrate superb skill
The advantage of working in this industry is that there are many opportunities for people such as yourself to enter events which reward you for any outstanding work. Awards and certificates can add more value to your previously completed projects and work experience. It can even help recruiters grade your skills, as these people can many times not have an idea of what “very good quality production” means within the context of the industry.
