Posting Your Résumé on YouTube

Have you thought of doing this before? If you havent, i think its high time you should consider posting your resume on YouTube if you are looking for a new job.

28-year-old David McMillan is an underemployed Hollywood writer, looking for a job as staff writer on a show. Tired of relying on the normal channels, this year he decided to take action and made a video pitch describing "the top ten reasons why you should hire me to write for your show" and then posted it on YouTube last week. The LA Times reports.

This is probably one of the best way to pitch yourself to your future employers after all its definitely more convincing than to email your resume. A short intro on video will provide great insights about yourself. I cant see any other better way to pitch yourself than to be recorded live infront on a video cam and publish it online.

This is definitely going to be the trend as more home computers can now handle streaming video; before, it was clunky and recruiters want to reach workers where they are, and younger job candidates like YouTube. The amateurish videos on YouTube carry an aura of authenticity appealing to a generation jaded by slick media.

This video clip below is great. How can you not get hired after this!! You are definitely qualified with unique talents. Good luck David.

From the moment the first Mercedes-Benz CLS four-door "coupe" was introduced to the public, other German luxury automakers hit the drafting board. According to the German auto experts at AutoBild, Audi is just over a year away from unleashing its own cleverly packaged sedan.
