When we talk about resumes, be it applicant or employer, we talk about it like it’s your permanent record, the complete and total summation of your career thus far.

Dear Lee

I was very interested in your blog and comments about video applications.  The big issue for employers is that they do not want to waste time with video when they are looking at 100s of applicants.

Happy for you to critique…
