Benefits of the DSR for job seekers.
Having the opportunity to choose from a variety of images and sounds to communicate allows the job seeker to showcase their work skills and talents in their own way.
Limitations of words
Words alone are limiting. Words are not the chosen mode by which many people want to communicate their work experience and skills: People need choices.
Richness of media
Images and sounds are not limiting. Images and coloured text or voice and workplace sounds allow people a choice in how they want to communicate their skills and experience.
Moving through the Digital Story Résumé process and to be able to collect work evidence using photographs, video or voice allows the job seeker to not only better represent their skills and knowledge it also allows them to communicate clearly at the job interview.
