In an article titled "Auditioning in a Video Resume", yesterday's New York Times discussed the increasing use of video resumes. Our experience with lawyers and law students shows that the biggest challenge in the use of video stems from a person's discomfort in front of a camera. With the cost of technology rapidly coming down, the primary cost of video resumes is for media training. A video resume can show one's personality in a way that a written one never could. This increases the chances that an in person interview will follow. With regard to students, this is particularly important if their law school doesn't have a large number of firms coming to interview on campus. But if the lawyer or law student doesn't "show" well, it's all for naught.
