If you are an employer and haven’t already started receiving video CVs from keen prospective candidates, then brace yourself for change. A generation who have grown up using the Web and social media are ready and willing to impress you with their personal and presentational skills.
Of course the paper or e-resume will always play a vital part in expressing an applicant’s experience and abilities, but in today’s increasingly competitive markets, time is short and traditional recruitment procedures can often prove expensive and frustratingly slow.
It isn’t until a job hunter has been successfully shortlisted and sits down for an interview that you can really get a sense of who they are, and whether they will be an ideal fit for your business or organisation.
Research has long shown that the first 30 seconds of an interview can prove to be a real deal-breaker CeeVid helps to bridge this gap by sourcing only the most professional candidates, and enabling them to showcase who they are and what they have to offer in little under a minute-and-a-half.
The industry conversation has already moved on from whether the time is right to make a video CV, to how to make a professional video that can meet a company’s needs and enhance job applications.
