Unlocking international opportunities with a VanHack profile
After filling in your information, it’s time to submit the English Verification videos. It was designed to evaluate the candidate’s level of professional English, and it is a mandatory step in our platform. After all, you are starting your journey to an international career, so hiring companies need to know how well you can use English in work situations.
The videos are also a way to make a great first impression. Think of them as a marketing tool for your profile! They are your first contact with international companies.
Check your priorities
Harvard researcher Grant Donnely concluded that saying “I’m too busy” to friends’ invitations can be perceived as untrue. “The results show that giving an excuse about not having enough time can hurt relationships, whereas giving an excuse about not having enough money can help them,” he wrote. The reason is that most people understand time as something more or less under our control, in opposition to money, for example.
Are you saying “I’m too busy” to yourself? Maybe it’s a matter of adjusting your priorities. You can do it if starting an international career is your number one professional goal.
If you haven’t completed your profile because you have further questions or want to understand the platform better, don’t hesitate to contact us. Think about what’s holding you back, and let us know how we can help.
