What about adding a video to your application?
Progress just keeps on coming. Darn it.
A young man named Humberto Valle, out here in AZ, has developed a website called http://oppenup.com (two p's for opportunity) which helps applicants add a video to their job applications.
They make no secret of it--this is for Millennials (read young people) who are tech savvy.
And, I would say, also, people who don't look old--which is still a big no-no jobwise. Yes, age discrimination is illegal--so what, it happens all the time.
Still, companies are not asking for videos of applicants. Sometimes these are posted on YouTube.
So this is a fledgling industry--but these days, the fledgling stage usually lasts about six months.
So whiten those teeth and buy a new shirt.
