Video cover letters are also a great channel to showcase your genuine side to the recruiter. Display your natural expressions to them as they love nothing more than a candidate who is not faking through their profile.

Now the next natural question is how do I create a video cover letter. This is where this handy guide from IntroMagic can help you, as it has covered the steps to create a video cover letter along with some dos and don’ts while creating one.
