Online Video – the new recruitment adverts?

Have you heard the statistic that the average person will read the first few lines of an advert or article before flicking onto something else if it does not grab them?  However on average someone will watch a 3 minute video even if it doesn’t grab their attention!

Recruiting 2.0 - The Potency of Video

As a hiring manager, how many times have you said the phrase “The resumes I am getting do not match what I’m looking for at all”? Well, now is the time to restructure your hiring process and see what you can do to improve your results. For starters:

1. The proof is in the details – Your job description is everything; it should be detailed, but not a novel. Make sure that important “must haves” are at the top to catch those quick readers in their tracks before they hit the “apply”…

To Video or Not to Video? Resume Videos are they going to help or hinder?

Back in 2003 while reviewing submitted hardcopy resumes, there were a number of new submissions that came in with mini-CD disks. Unsure as to what they really were, and concerned of potential viruses our IT department scanned them and once given the approval it was my turn to check them out. To my surprise they simply held the soft-copy of the documents that had been submitted – ok thanks but not needed.


During the Global Career Brainstorming Day (held Dec. 3, 2010) and at…
