Whatever you are doing, stop it and hire Lamia Gouda!

Hire Lamia Gouda now!!!

I stumbled across a gem today! While searching for something else, I discovered the video resume of Lamia Gouda. Curiosity took the better of me and I watched a VERY funny and engaging pitch of a very talented woman: Actress, Translator, Video Editor, Voice Over Talent and Stylist. She speaks multiple languages (Arabic, French and English) and not only that, she is also quite the entrepreneur. Check out her iPhone game where she has fight and outwit other actresses for a coveted Hollywood movie role.

Hire Lamia Gouda today. Look at her CVWhat I really like about Lamia Gouda is the impression she left with me. Sure, I could look at her resume and get a feel for what she can deliver, but what has me the most interested is all the intangibles that are not on her resume. Judging by her website and how it scrolls from left to right, instead of the usual vertical scroll tells me that she looks at things differently. The way she plasters her very expressive face next to each website section lets me know that she understands that she is ultimately selling her self to employers and not just a bunch of keywords. Having new media embedded in her site helps a lot as well.

This is a Nokia commercial she was in.

I have to admit that when I first saw her video resume, I thought it was a promo for an online web-series. Plus, since it was in a language foreign to me, I doubted that I would watch it all the way through. That being said, the production was first rate, Lamia’s performance was hilarious and captivating and I (literally) stood up and applauded her efforts. Anyone can see that she has gone the extra mile to get the attention of a potential employer. I will keep my fingers crossed that she gets all that she is pursuing because she is definitely working hard for it.

Check out the video resume that got me excited enough (and laughing enough) to want to write this blog post about her.

Good job Lamia Gouda! If I could, I would hire you today.

P.S. Lamia, please consider adding English subtitles to your video resume. For that matter, French subtitles as well. Please do yourself a favor and check out this website: DotSub

P.P.S. You are one hard working woman with boundless talent. Love the game by the way! ;-)

Thanks Jim,

The only reason I read this, was because of your brand.  I can always count on you for quality content and you always deliver.

 In this case, your enthusiasm did not match the content here.  So, just one question because I cant get the time back that I spent reading this and following your links:  are you saying that this is the resume of the future or  is this what job seekers need to stand out?

I do agree with you a bit on this one Ken. I took it as a resume of the future and steps one takes to stand out, but would be interested in Jim's thoughts.
