Will video resume help you to get a job?
As most of the others have said, video resumes can work, but it is of the utmost importance that it be of high quality, and an engaging presentation.
If it simply reiterates the same thing your paper resume does, and in a more boring fashion than your paper resume, this will hurt you even more than if you didn’t have one.
Think about it: with a paper resume, a future employer basically does not know you from a can of spray paint, and they have to get you in their office to see what you’re like as a person. They cannot judge your interpersonal skills, etiquette, or social graces until they see you in their office. I’m not saying that they can judge any of these things from a video of you, but I would be willing to bet money that a lot of candidates from been excluded simply because their video was of poor quality and/or wasn’t engaging.
The last thing you want it to look like is “just another Youtube video.” It needs to be thought through, and executed flawlessly. I would even suggest that, for this project, you utilize one of the higher quality video recording sites, such as Vimeo. I would advise against Youtube.
