"@ Chris - bringing up the discrimination claim is as baseless as making a child wait 30 minutes to swim after eating. It makes the recruiting industry look uninformed and stuck in the past. Virtually every Fortune 500 company is using video to…"

"i wish there was an app from which you can mark up a resume in an ipad.  Maybe there is one and I don't know about it.  I just use "notes" and attach it to the resume file.  "
