Guruon.ly Whiteboard Animation Script/Storyboard

1.

A MAN AND A WOMAN, BRIGHT, INTELLIGENT, LOOKING TO CAMERA…

V/O

Well, you made it. Congratulations. You’ve done the training. Got the technical qualification…

(THEY ARE HANDED CERTIFICATES BY AN UNSEEN PERSON – THE CERTIFICATES SAY “IT DEVELOPER” AND “WEB DESIGNER”)

Now it’s time to look for that awesome job.

 

2.

SEPARATELY – USING SPLIT SCREEN – THE MAN AND WOMAN START LOOKING FOR JOBS ON THE INTERNET USING THEIR LAPTOPS OR MOBILE DEVICES

(ON THEIR SCREENS A BIG HEADING “JOB WORLD” AND “JOB SITE”)

V/O

There are many opportunities, but you want a job that matches your skill set…

(THE MAN AND WOMAN SCROLL DOWN THEIR SCREENS UNTIL THEY GET TO THE HEADINGS “TECH JOBS” OR “TECH PERSONNEL WANTED URGENTLY!”)

V/O

You start applying…

 

MIX TO A “FANTASY” WORLD…

 

3.

THE BACKGROUND IS A BUSY SCENE OF GRAPHICS FEATURING OFFICES/RETAIL UNITS SIGNS

ABOVE THE DOORS WITH NAMES LIKE – “MEDIA COMPANY RECRUITMENT”, “WEB

MARKETING RECRUITING AGENCY”, “TECH RECRUITMENT FOR CHARITY ORGANISATION”, “GOVERNMENT RECRUITMENT OFFICES”

THE MAN AND WOMAN ARE WALKING ALONG, LOOKING AT THE VARIOUS OPPORTUNITIES…

 

4.

THE MAN AND WOMAN KNOCK ON DOORS

MALE & FEMALE RECRUITERS GREET THEM (THEY HAVE BADGES ON THEIR CLOTHING SAYING “RECRUITMENT OFFICER”)

THE YOUNG MAN AND YOUNG WOMAN HAND THEIR CV’S/RESUME’S TO THE RECRUITERS V/O

The trouble is – many recruitment agencies and recruiting staff don’t really know what they are looking for or don’t have the technical skills to be able to accurately assess your knowledge or how your skill set compares to other candidates…

 

THE RECRUITERS LOOK AT THE CV’S/RESUME’S

 

CUT TO

CLOSE UPS OF THE CV’S – UNDER THE HEADING “QUALIFICATIONS” WE SEE THE FOLLOWING ANACRONYMS:

GIT, PHP, CSS, JQUERY, VCP, CCNA, C#, NGINX, APACHE, IIS, C++, .NET

 

CUT BACK TO THE RECRUITERS

THEY LOOK AT THE MAN AND WOMAN WITH BLANK EXPRESSIONS…

A BIG “X” APPEARS OVER THE RECRUITERS HEADS WITH AN APPROPRIATE “WRONG ANSWER” BUZZER SOUND EFFECT

THE RECRUITERS SHRUG THEIR SHOULDERS, CLOSE THE DOOR ON THE TWO JOB SEEKERS

 

CLOSE UPS –

THE MAN AND WOMAN LOOKING GLUM…

V/O

Being misrepresented makes you feel under-valued, frustrated, unable to push on and start your career. You’re thinking – If only recruiters were techie’s they’d know how good I am!

 

5.

WIDE SHOT – THE SCREEN FILLS UP WITH OTHER TECH JOB SEEKERS APPEARING NEXT TO

AND AROUND OUR TWO MAIN CHARACTERS UNTIL THE SCREEN IS A MASS OF YOUNG AND OLDER, EAGER PEOPLE…

V/O

The thing is, you’re not alone. There are hundreds of applicants going for the same job. You need to stand out from the crowd so your skills can be properly appreciated and assessed…

 

MIX BACK TO SPLIT SCREEN –

THE MAN AND WOMAN IN THEIR SEPARATE HOMES STARING AT THEIR COMPUTER SCREENS LOOKING DEJECTED…

V/O

You are left wondering – what do I do? How can I avoid the non-technical middle man?

If only there was a job market where there was one platform to showcase all skills, where companies come to recruit directly for skills that are rated by fellow techies!

Well, guess what…there is.
