On a show called How I Met Your Mother a guy named Barry Stinson creates a video resume. This video is very viral and can be used to market oneself but the only thing I get from this is that he only talks about himself.  As a company I don’t see the value in this guy.  I could see that apparently he is awesome.

The one thing he does have going for him is that the video is very creative and it is a great marketing ploy…. This video takes away too much from what he can do and focuses solely on how “awesome” he is.

I would say that when you create a video webume you should be creative and you do want to attract your employer’s attention but you also want to do it in a little more professional manner.
