I think this article is relevant because in many ways interviews are a way of vetting employees. Last week I attended the Recruiting Roadshow and Joel Cheesman of Cheezhead.com gave a great commentary on video resumes.

Normally this is not a forum for comedy but I believe its a great way to show you the benefits and the liability of this new medium. First however, read the following article, then watch the video:

Bellevue, Wash. — May 8
InterviewStudio, a new rich media platform used for the initial interview of a job candidate, has just made available its latest Webinar, “To Video or Not To Video: The Social and Legal Considerations of Video Interviews and Video Resumes.” The Webinar features legal views and perspectives from the EEOC, a private-practice law firm, and recruiting industry experts.
Though controversial, the video has arrived on the hiring scene, and employers and recruiters must now determine how they will use video interviews or resumes in their applicant-screening process while staying within the guidelines set forth by the EEOC and OFCCP.
InterviewStudio’s Webinar, “To Video or Not To Video,” presents employers and recruiters with the latest information they need regarding video usage in the screening process, with the EEOC’s views presented by an assistant legal counsel; practical advice on video risk management from Summit Law Group, a private practice firm based in Seattle; and an industry perspective from Colleen Aylward, a 16-year leader in the applicant screening market.
