If you were a recruiter for new hires, would you prefer video resumes over printed ones?


Let's say you are in Human Resources and you need to find a Controller for your company. Would you be more apt to view video resumes in your search, or would you prefer reading over printed resumes instead?

    Thank you. After visiting a video resume website, I was disappointed in the quality of the videos. Also, they lacked enthusiasm. Good suggestion to keep it concise. The recruiter may have many to view so it's good not to become long winded.

    I like your take on this. A recruiter is not only looking for skills, but demeanor, confidence in speaking, enthusiasm and presence. I feel that a paper resume that contains a link to a video would be the best way to go.

    I appreciate your side of things. You have a valid point. However, I think that if a paper resume contained a link to a video, a recruiter could make the choice to view, or not to view. For top professional positions, a video would be a plus.
