I keep hearing on various sites about this document not being used. But in most business circles I am involved in (online and IRL), it is one of the primary things asked for from candidates. Short video interviews are a thing (especially in Asia) but still in infancy. No one has come up with a worthy alternative. What is your experience?

Full disclosure: I run a professional services firm offering English resume creation, LinkedIn profile creation/enhancement and interview coaching. Asking the question so I can gather research on new ways companies are seeking out candidates.
