well, at the end of the day it's just making a video of yourself saying what you're good at.  What's to know about?

I assume like a CV there must be some kind of protocol with one of these?

I'm with Bob a bit on this Jason do you mean anything goes or is there a certain order or information? Or does the paper CV go along with the video one?

Video CV what a waste of time.
I can just see everyone gathering around a PC and having a good laugh at some of these.

E mail your CV.  as a PDF preferably.
These days it is not worth a stamp as most will be thrown away!

I agree fully with this.

You should think again, you seem like an ideal video cv candidate.  The format is this:

1 Talk about what you're good at.
2 Explain why you are bypassing the usual recruitment process
3 Rant in a semi joking manner about what you hate about the recruitment industry

A prospective hirer gets hold of it, doesn't have a vacncy that's right for you but finds it funny so forwards it to his contacts.  The vid goes viral and BANG, you've just self publicised and find the job of your dreams at the company of the year.

ok, so you've got to dream a little, but what's to lose?

So we get loads of tossers sending videos by email clogging up company's severs.
You then find that they put them on youtube and your CV video is laughed at world wide.
Who will give you a job now?

Keep it professional.  Hard I know when recruitment agencies may be involved.

I don't have to go along with anything I don't like.

That's the trouble with the British they just put up with anything no matter what.

Take David "the boy" Cameron last week, one minute he is doing  a "deal" with China for 1.4billion trade business.

Then he is giving away a 1.4 billion Contract to Siemens - a German company, (remember they bombed us in the war!) which results in 2,000 BRITISJ workers losing their jobs in Derby.

At the end of the day we will have hyperinflation (to ease the debt) and everyone will be equal with NOTHING!

What does the war have to do with anything? Either it was a good deal or a bad deal. Obama was here recently and we are their major partner in a few wars right now...remember though they booted us out of their country two hundred years ago!

The war? I think it's time to get over that.
