We try not to be overly critical here at Jobacle.com – but at the same time – we are trying to push existing career Web sites to a higher standard.
Today’s example of “Holy crap, we gotta jump into this Web video craze” belongs to the folks at Vault.com. Now, in general, the site does offer some great resources for job seekers. However, the video below is a career site doing video just for the sake of doing video. The content is flat, production is weak and it’s a waste of :53 seconds of your life.
Career Web sites can post all of the video in the world. They can blab on and on about whether video resumes are “the next big thing. BUT, all of these career Web sites must realize that if they don’t evolve with the needs and wants of today’s online job seeker, they will eventually be left behind.
I implore these companies to only tackle Web 2.0 if they have a useful and well thought-out product. Quite frankly, these Vault videos look they were done by a high school film class.
