Nachdem du die App kostenlos im Appstore oder Google Playstore heruntergeladen hast, öffnest du sie auf deinem Smartphone. Dort findest du je nach Kauf eine bestimmte Anzahl von Slots. Jeder Slots ist gleich unterteilt in die Sektionen Anschreiben, Lebenslauf und Kenntnisse. Zu einem Slot kannst du also drei Videos aufnehmen. Was du inhaltlich sagst, ist vollkommen dir überlassen. Um mit deinem ersten Bewerbungsvideo anzufangen, wählst du beispielsweise die Sektion Anschreiben aus und berührst den Aufnehm-Button. Durch Betätigung des roten Buttons startest und beendest du dein Video. Unter der Kategorie Abspielen kannst du es dir anschauen. Dabei hast du so viele Versuche, wie du benötigst. Auswählen klickst du an, wenn du ein bereits mit der App gedrehtes Video in einen anderen Slot hochladen möchtest für eine Neuaufnahme drückst du erneut auf aufnehmen und drehst ein neues Video. Für die anderen Sektionen gehst du genauso vor. Sobald du mit der Aufnahme deines Videos zufrieden bist, klickst du auf hochladen. Wenn du alle drei Videos hochgeladen hast, gibst du sie noch frei, das bedeutet, du gibst die Videos an das metru Team für die Bearbeitung frei.

At best, you’re recording the videos during the day in a place that provides good lighting conditions. A good place could be in front of a window at your home. Also keep an eye on the background, which shouldn’t show any private images. You should always film with the light and never against it. Some test recordings before the actual recording can help you to test the lighting conditions.

Let`s have a look at your smartphone setup: Make sure you put the smartphone on a solid ground so that it doesn’t wobble too much. You can use a tripod or build a small construction yourself to achieve this. During the recording, you should stand inside the mask shown on the smartphone screen.

Various packages have been put together that are geared to different needs, as they differ in the slot and PDF number.
