Video Resumes: Is the new fad already dying?

I watched the video on Fox News’ website of the CEO of Webimax, who was interviewed on the morning news. He mentioned video resumes like they were a new, great way to get noticed by employers.

Adam suggested I do some research on these high-tech resumes (and try to answer the 10 questions he listed a few blogs ago:

After breezing through some articles, blogs, and videos, I’m not so sure about them. For one thing, do employers really want to sit through an amateur video starring you?

Visit my site to read my blog post about video resumes, and let me know your thoughts!

Are You Open for Opportunity?

I have been getting the daily updates in my email for quite sometime now. The daily videos of Roxanne and her dog Lexi, come from the beaches of Hawaii. Roxanne has a different topic everyday which may include personal development subjects to less serious topics. She also gives you a little Hawaiian Language lesson  with a Hawaiian word of the day. Today’s word of the day was Manawa kpono or opportunity.

Today, Roxanne talks about taking a life challenge as her partner Shane said when they were faced with a client rescheduling issue, “What’s the Opportunity Here ?”

I like the idea of finding gold in situations that if  we allow ourselves to, could potentially make us a little sad,very depressed or worse.

For example, when the SEO Company Lizzie and I were working for, had to let us both go due to loss of clients, we could have, gotten really depressed(we did get a little bummed) because we then had to find new (sorry for the curse word in advance) jobs. But instead, we looked at it as the opportunity to fully go out on our own. Within a month, we were able to network our resources and were able to more than make up for the lost income and benefit security. Today, our own SEO Company,, is a growing, thriving business.

How about you,

when did you have to find the gold nugget in a potentially bad situation?

I won an Ipod Shuffle from

This morning I was quite surprised when I was checking the inbound links I went on and found I had won Red Ipod Shufflean Ipod Shuffle he had been giving away in his Personal Development contest he was holding. Then this morning Alex emailed me for my mailing info and wanted to know what color Ipod I wanted. So I went onto the Apple site and ordered a red one. Apple is donating the proceeds to the Aids Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa.

I originally found out about Alex’s contest when he left a comment on another Personal Development Contest post I had done. Alex was letting me know about his contest which was very similar to Aaron’s contest which is still being held to promote the launching of Personal Development Partners.
So now, I will have an Ipod Shuffle. What will I do with it? I can keep it for my own listening pleasure. I can give it to one of the kids for a Christmas present. Or better yet, I can use it as a prize for a contest here on Pixelheadonline.

Got any suggestions for a contest or what I could do with AlexShalman’s Ipod Shuffle?

$4000 dollar Contest and Ipod Contest

Since posting about the Contest, I have become aware of several other contests. Two great contests that offer a lot more than some sweet prizes.

Could you use Any of the 4000 dollars worth of Prizes?

The first, contest I found when I was on and Jon was telling us about this Huge blogging contest being run on, celebrating David’s graphic design blog’s first amazing Anniversary.

I was checking out David’s site, and I have to say I was very impressed with his work. I seriously hope I win the Logo design prize that is up as one the prizes, because David is a really talented graphic designer. If you need any kind of marketing materials for your business designed, stop by David’s site and check out his design portfolio.

But not only is David giving away a custom designed Logo, but he has gotten a ton of other prizes donated by some other amazing bloggers to help David celebrate his anniversary. Some of the tremendous prizes include but are not limited to:

To see the entire list of prizes, and to get the details about how to enter the contest, check out The Graphic Designer Prize Giveaway.

The Second Contest I became aware of when Alex of dropped me a comment on the previous PDP contest post. Alex’s Personal Development Contest, which is ending on Sunday, is giving away an Ipod Shuffle. It is a really easy contest to enter, so check out Alex’s post and to enter. The great thing about Alex’s contest besides the Ipod, is that he has a tremendous list of other Personal Development sites, which is the main reason he is having the contest to show support for all the other Personal Development sites out there. Check it out the huge list and enter the contest, but hurry it ends Sunday.

UPDATE: Alex’s contest is ending on September 27th and not the 23rd. So there is a little more time to enter.
