The good thing about video resumes is that is shows that the person has some technology skills. For example, if I was to ask my mother did she know how to upload a video to YouTube she would probably first ask me what YouTube is and then refer me to someone who she thinks will know. Another good thing about video resumes is that the person can be creative. Most people who haven’t been working for five or more years or even people who have can be creative to not bore the viewer.
The bad and the ugly thing about video resume is that everyone is not technology savvy as others. For instance, a manager who is age 50 has a successful business that makes tons of money but he doesn’t know how to use a computer because he hires people to handle the technology things. Another bad thing about video resumes is that they can be to long at time. The video resume should be short, sweet and to the point. One more thing is that technology fails and if you submit a video resume and the technology fails problems can arise.
