Why you shouldn’t move to a multimedia CV

How important is format in a resume? What about format vs. content? Are Video CV’s the future? What can you do to improve your chances?

BBC columnist Elizabeth Garone questioned Grégoire Depeursinge, VP EMEA and Managing Partner Switzerland at AIMS International as well as other executive search professionals about this topic. Read the BBC article here and the full text of Grégoire’s statement below and make up your mind:

What has changed is that CV’s are now present on multiple platforms like social networks, candidate databases, etc. and can easily be adapted somewhat to suit a particular application.
