I thought I'd start this topic as we were discussing it in another strand and nobody seems to know what one actually is.

Is it an mp4 file that you send with a paper cv?

Is it just something you record yourself on a webcam?

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

video resume is increasingly popular tool for trade mark applicant and self-employment. 89% of employers are willing to see the video resume job seeker. Video resume will highlight the skills, knowledge and talent looking for work, the game will resume a candidate faster than the conventional job interview. Most employers now ask Resume video as attached as curriculum vitae by mail. However, you can download the new video in any online video site like YouTube etc.

Syed so what information does one put in a video CV? Is it basically a monologue to a webcam about one's skills and attributes etc? Do you record different ones depending on the job you are looking for and therefore make it specifically for an individual job application or is it usually a generic one?

Up to know I've leaned towards Jasper's opinion on this but am open to learn.

Whatever will help me find a new job really.

It seems from the lack of interest or knowledge about this that Jasper's right again.
