|hrreporter.com|Last Updated: 05/01/2007

With the overwhelming popularity of YouTube, where users can post videos of themselves doing just about anything, it was only a matter of time before the advent of online video resumés.

In response to a survey conducted by online job board CareerBuilder.com that found 60 per cent of more than 2,200 hiring managers and HR professionals would be interested in video resumés, CareerBuilder is going to launch a new video resume service this summer.

Job seekers will be able to use videos to highlight their qualifications, accomplishments and other key information.
