Techy Guru Video Resume Success Story

You've got to take five minutes and read this piece, posted by a blogger in Ireland. From the onset, we always believed that the first adopters to video resume technology would be the entry level and recent college gradutates. For the most part we were right, but now we are seeing more and more professional candidates. This change was inevitable, however I'm still shocked that it is happening so quickly! Isn't is supposed to take years for a new technology to become widely accepted? Aren't "seasoned veterans" slow to change?

I'm a parent and really beginning to sound like one.... I can't stress how important it is that you create a professional video resume with zero cheese factor, music or other distractions. This video is not a replacement for your "paper" version, but rather an enhancement. Doing it "right" will be germane to your success. It doesn't belong on YouTube, nor does your resume belong on Monster or Career Builder - EVERYONE does it that way and you will not get noticed. Also, it doesn't cost $300, but it isn't free (to do it right).
