We have recently expanded our remit to cover young people and adults with learning disabilities who have aspirations of gaining work experience, volunteering or becoming employed. The project we have developed - myCVinAction.com has the aim of creating video CVs for people with learning disabilities portraying each individual working in the environment they enjoy and excel in.
MyCVinAction.com is an opportunity for people with disabilities to break down some of the barriers of finding employment by providing a tool that demonstrates the candidate’s ability to fulfil a job role. Because of some employer’s general lack of awareness of disabilities, applicants with a disability rarely make it to interview. A video cv ‘in action’ gives candidates the opportunity to actively promote themselves by breaking down preconceptions those employers have.
In addition to the traditional written or video cv that simply reels out a candidates qualifications and experience, myCVinAction.com provides a video that demonstrates a candidate in their ideal role, hence the ‘in action’. Adding to this, it allows candidates an opportunity to promote themselves verbally, and provides a video reference from a previous employer or tutors.
