MonsterIndia adds video resumes

Just noticed that MonsterIndia has the feature for jobseekers to add and upload their video resumes.

I wonder how many people are actually using this facility. The interesting thing is who would choose to use it. For people in sales and front office roles a video resume would be very helpful. It can help an employer to make a selection decision or otherwise.

The other point is would recruiters go through a full video resume or will they hit the stop button after a couple of seconds. In which case, how different would a video resume be from a photograph.

Oh yes, if you are not comfortable in front of a camera and are not too confident about your spoken and personal presentation skills, do NOT go for a video resume!
