This short video explains the pros of including video in the communications field, particularly in the business aspect. Visual aides of any sort when used properly only help convey whatever message you are trying to present. Video use is also appropriate for communications fields such as advertising, communication education, television/broadcasting, high technology industries, and more.
However, I do not believe every communications career absolutely has to be video literate. If you’re going to be a Legal Reporter you may watch a few video clips but I don’t believe it will be necessary for you to shoot and edit a video. It is the same for a Media Analyst, Announcer, Reporter, or the like.
