The video resume has a sordid history. It was made famous in 1996 by Aleskey Vayner, in a video application he sent to a US investment bank. The title of the video: ‘Impossible is Nothing’. In it, Aleskey is asked a single question – ‘how do some people like you become very proficient in their field much faster than most?’
His six minute response has since become internet folklore. Highlights include a 225kg benchpress, 225 kmph tennis serve, ballroom dancing, and a clean karate chop of seven bricks. Worth revisiting today to brighten up the workday. Would you hire this guy?
