Reminded me of Reese Witherspoon’s Harvard Law School application in Legally Blonde.

    You know, they could always let people showcase their portfolios – would be more useful than having a video resume. Not that it is a bad idea per se.

    metlin – used right, this could revolutionize the way HR works. But see, as new ideas tend to get misused quick – Elle’s video popped into my mind.
    Imagine the flip side to the why’s of a person getting hired or not.

    KC – lol, illey. I think it’s cool, just wary.

    Pilgrim – I think that was Groucho Marx that said it, but a quick Google search showed both Groucho & Woody Allen.
