HR Guru, you are totally to the point. And you know what, video resumes may actually result in more applicants especially if you are doing a lot of college hiring or entry-level people. In this way, you can differentiate candidates more easily and pick the more qualified ones. Also, many younger people who lack in-depth experience but have other qualities may put together a video resume rather than a conventional one.

As a experienced recruiter, I have already reaped some of the benefits of video resumes. There are, however, some useful tips that are good to follow. If you are providing such a service give the applicants a few guidelines of lenght and beneficial content. Present a basic example of what you are actually looking for and what should candidates accentuate on. Also, give several questions that should be answered during the interview in order to ensure that you are comparing applicants under the same criteria.

Exactly my point of view! This blog is really well written and opposed to most theories, video resumes are indeed a blessing in disguise. In fact, just the other day i submitted my video resume with this recruitment agency called spryjobs.com and i got some of the best job offers based on my resume. Keep up the good work! Let's promote video resumes!

I wanted to start video resumes at my company but am getting pushback. If I see the person, I could be discriminating against them unintentionally. Any way to get around that???
