Firm sees video CVs as the future of recruitment

Filed under: Recruitment General — Jonathan on February 27, 2013

Video Recruit, a new web-based service, is about to give a face-lift to the process of recruitment through connecting emerging talent and jobseekers with employers – using video along with other forms of multimedia. Therefore, those entering careers in information security jobs and other vacancies will have to get used to a new way or promoting themselves to prospective employers.

The firm aims to facilitate the increasing trend for video-based CVs and plans on making its mark on the industry through allowing both users and employers access to a more creative and transparent process.

Video Recruit CEO, Susan Thompson, said that it’s about time the recruitment industry took advantage of today’s technology. She said:

“The job market is extremely competitive with hundreds of thousands competing for a limited number of vacancies […] many of which are undiscovered talents.

“Since its conception, the CV has remained relatively unchanged and become so standardised that it’s difficult for job seekers to shine and for employers to shortlist the most talented individuals. With today’s digital workforce actively seeking new ways to promote themselves such as through the video CV, the recruitment process and employers must catch-up to accommodate and support this evolution. This is the sole purpose of Video Recruit.”

With advances in technology and access to internet resources like video site Youtube, a CV presented through video has now become popular among graduates looking to enter a career. Video Recruit further offers advice and mentorship to candidates regarding best practices when it comes to creating a professional and effective video CV.
