In the text of your résumé, viewers can scroll over names of former employers or colleges and scan pop-ups with basic details and Web links—particularly useful if the employer was small or the college somewhat obscure. Each VisualCV résumé has a URL, so you can print the Web address on your business card or include the link in your contact with a potential employer.
Don't go overboard. You can add video to your VisualCV—maybe a speech given at an industry conference. But Meadows is not too keen on the often-awkward, and potentially self-destructive, video résumé. He suggests taking advantage of the available application and including a "video handshake." In 60 seconds or less, introduce yourself, quickly explain your background and what you're looking for, and then stop talking. You're trying to communicate personality and communication skills, but you shouldn't be trying to anticipate and speak to a potential employer's needs.
