Is it a good idea to send a video along with followup email ?

Sep 29 27 Comments

I cleared all rounds of interview at Microsoft, I did not hear back from HR and manager for past 2 weeks. Is it a good idea to send a 2 minute video explaining "How I will be a great asset to the team" to the Hiring manager along with the followup email ?

    Email maybe unless you’ve sent x2 or 3 already. Follow up not bad but God no no no stop no video, explaining no no no

      Maybe reach out to recruiter if you have not already. Also, hiring manager? Did you meet anyone on team you want to join? Reach out if possible? Good luck!

      There are studies from LinkedIn showing a high correlation between follow up videos and becoming hired

    It's only a great idea if you upload the video on YouTube and post link here.

    No. Take initiative and send a video of you explaining why you will be a great CEO to Satya.

    I like your intentions and understand the feeling but they may be busy and this would come as another thing on their agenda, if you think you are rejected just study and impress them next time and then become what you intent to send them.

      I appreciate your kindness. I'm going to work at Microsoft for sure. I just want to make the process faster. So I thought of doing this.

    This is even worse than the “should I send thank you messages” conversation from last week.

    Sounds like you are ghosted. But anyway, still, do the video, upload it into YouTube and paste the link here.
