It might be folklore, but it’s still a great story.
The most successful job ad ever written was Shackleton’s broadside advertising for the crew of the Endurance. Printed with hand-set type on cheap paper and glued to piers and posts around the harbor, it read:
A reported 5,000 men lined up…Continue
I read a post on RecruitingBlogs this morning that said you get the most views on a Facebook job ad. I'm calling BS in my first ever video blog post.

Let's be honest, if we took a look at the technology you're using to interview even 5 years ago, I bet it would look almost the same as it does today. Maybe a new platform or two but essentially the same sh*t, different year, despite the blogging community and a ton of startups who have spent…Continue

A video job interview in recruiting creates manageable content, although very few ATS or HRMS systems allow video storage. The benefit of being able to edit, store, and convert to the appropriate information format for evaluating candidates or future consideration of a new opening.
With the global war for talent showing no sign of slowing down, the issue of how employers and recruiters can attract the best candidates remains a contentious issue within the industry.
Finding new, talented people is critical to the growth and success of all companies. Across a wide range of industries, companies are finding that demand for skills is far outweighing supply, and as this skills gap continues to widen, are having to think more creatively as to how to beat the…Continue

You certainly wish you could snap your fingers and find the right people for your clients. Unfortunately unlike the classic TV sitcom Bewitched, you can’t just wiggle your nose and wait for talent to appear.
The skills gap has made it harder than ever to find the right people,…Continue

Interviews are almost always nerve-wracking, but when interviews are completed via Skype or some other remote means, the process can seem very impersonal. Besides being nervous, the candidate will find it very difficult to read facial expressions or the body language of the interviewer.Continue

I’m regularly asked by recruiters and HR directors what type of roles video interviewing works best for. It’s a very pertinent question, for which there is no simple, right or wrong answer. It depends on a number of factors such as the seniority of role you’re recruiting for, or the size of your organisation.

Ok so this is not your norm, BDO have been in business here in the cayman Islands for ten years and they wanted to celebrate with a corporate video.
