Video resumes are quickly becoming a popular internet job hunting tool, especially among job seekers conducting their first career job search out of college. While a video job hunting resume may effectively separate these applicants from the pack, their use may not be the best resume format in practice. Serious concerns regarding high production expense and possible discrimination by hiring companies based on candidate appearance have been raised by Fortune 500 companies and career guidance advice professionals who specialize in providing tips for job hunting in today's market.
Audio Resume has been launched by My Ad Box, Inc. as a high benefit, low risk strategic job hunting alternative to video resumes. With Audio Resume, job seekers dial a provided toll-free phone number to answer five commonly posed general interview questions. Those answers are captured in an audio file, and then a unique URL is appointed that allows visitors to listen. Candidates can then include this for the best resume format, along with placement of the URL on cover letter submissions and as a link on their web-based career site profiles.
