LinkedIn promotes resume videos

LinkedIn promotes resume videos

DEAR JOYCE: I'm not what you would call "tech-minded," but my boyfriend is and he says I should record a video of my resume. He would handle the "tech" part. Is this really necessary today to get a great job? -- C.D.

A video resume is among numerous approaches to getting a great job today. It's an option to consider, especially if you're using LinkedIn. But if you're a neophyte at creating one, find a resume professional with experience in creating your video.

DEAR JOYCE: I have just graduated with a bachelor's degree in sports management, which included an internship, but I don't seem to be able to land a job in my field. Help! -- D.J.
