Should I use a video construction resume?

Yes, video construction resumes are taking off, spurred by the combination of widespread broadband Internet usage, higher-quality video technology and increased enthusiasm for online video sharing. And young job seekers -- who may be long on enthusiasm but short on experience -- can use this technique to get an edge up on the competition.

Depending on the construction industry and a particular position you're applying for, it can be a very effective tool, but watch out: There is a fine line between a successful video construction resume and one that might be better left on the cutting-room floor.
