Thanks for the feedback everyone. That first website only has 98 members, so the idea of video resumes doesn't seem to have gone viral yet
Here's the part of the job search that needs revolutionizing - sites like Monster.com will charge maybe $300 for one job posting and then the
employer has to hope the right person applies. Most small businesses probably couldn't afford that cost and that's a very passive way of looking
for an employee.
On the flip side, when you are applying for jobs, you have to submit to hundreds of openings because you know your paper resume will be automatically
filtered out with software that detects if your resume has specific words. One of the other features of the website is the job seeker enters their
skills and can say he or she is looking for work within "x" miles of a zip code. Then, when an employer searches for their zip code and skills that
they need for the jobs, several candidates are displayed in their search.
With regards to not hiring someone because of judging the book by the cover, you'll have to eventually meet the person making the hiring decision in
real life anyways, right? So, that bias in the hiring system is inevitable at some point anyways.
