Video résumés?

They’re the new trend, Time magazine informs us.

Thanks goodness my days of working for others are behind me. Socially awkward chappies like me would have immense difficulty in impressing anyone with a video résumé. I’d imagine, however, that even if good video résumés help some confident freshers get entry-level jobs, their usefulness will diminish as one goes up the ladder. After a point, what you do surely has to have more impact than how you present yourself. No?
