Thinking of utilizing a video resume in your job search? If that’s the case, there are several websites that would love to host your video and allow you to use it as a differentiator in your hunt. The question then becomes: which site is best suited to meet your needs? Below is a quick side-by-side comparison of two such sites, Jobma and Resumebook.tv.

- Once a resume is uploaded, a QR code is inserted on it so that it can be accessed via smartphone by anyone possessing a paper copy.
- Each user has a customizable profile URL which can be distributed anywhere on the internet, and along with that the site has built in email and social media sharing capabilities. With this feature, the profile can be accessed unlimitedly through all social media sites, other job boards, and email.
