No, you don't need to.
Though, a video cover letter is a great way to stand out from the pack! Especially if you believe you're a great fit for the job and want to show off your personality! That said, while many employers on HigherMe ask for a video cover letter, it is usually optional.
You can also record a more general video cover letter for your profile, which can be viewed by employers who might seek you out! 😎✨
You can still apply for the vast majority of jobs on HigherMe without a video cover letter without affecting your chances of getting the job!
Happy job hunt!🎉
