$7,000 Video Resume??

The market for video resume technology is beginning to mature and it won't be long before every candidate will be expected to have a digital video profile - it just makes sense. "Intelligent resumes" that include the traditional resume, video resume, personality profile, relevant test scores, links to social media and other pertinent information are fast becoming the norm and TalentRooster is honored to lead this trend! Soon hiring managers will have access to 80% of the information they need, before ever meeting the candidate! Therefore it is mission critical that job seekers understand how important a professional video resume is quickly becoming....

Upon reading this piece, I couldn't believe that some people pay as much as $7,000 for a video resume - seriously? There is NO reason any candidate should pay more than $39.95 for everything including graphics, hosting, video and more. While the technology to do it "right" is not cheap, I'm saddened to learn about candidates that end up paying hundreds or thousands of dollars when they don't need to - it's like paying full retail price for a car! Just remember to do your homework and learn what all is included, before committing. Nevertheless, having the power of a professional video resume at your disposal will put you at the front of the hiring line. Good luck!
