hmmm very interesting indeed. some of my thoughts though...
first off, it looked like he was reading straight off of a teleprompter and you could see his eyes tracking the words so that was a bit off putting making it feel very scripted. I realize that is sort of the point but it still feels too stiff in that sense.
second, what employer is going to take the time to watch a 2 minute video of someone "reciting their resume"? i mean yeah it feels a bit more personal, but its not an interview and when companies or businesses get tons of applications a day, I feel like they will just skim the video like i found myself doing. As a mechanical engineer myself, i have my resume condensed very carefully to one single page so someone can skim and pick out the highlight points quickly and efficiently.
overall i think it comes down to the person and their degree. engineers, businessmen and similar disciplines don't have time to watch two minutes for somebody to recite their resume, but someone in the arts such as an actor/actress out of theater or even a painter/singer-songwriter or other people in an art related discipline would benefit from this a lot more because they can showcase their talents within the video. a resume is basically to show that you are qualified and deserve an interview. an interview with the company is where you make a personal impression and give them the opportunity to see if you will fit in with their business as a person or not. thats my take on resumes and what not
