The newest concept for recruitment is here at Job Pinoy. Video resume is a fresh new way of recruiting talent online. Job Pinoy is encouraging HR pros and job seekers alike to try and see how it works for both parties, especially the positive impact it can give.
If you’re a recruitment professional on a busy or tight schedule to fill job openings, the video resume might be the alternative that can help your company find the candidate you’re looking for. Every supervisor and manager pride themselves on having the best employee on their team, which goes the same for the recruiters. It goes without saying that the importance of optimizing your recruitment process should be high on the priority list
To further discuss the matter, here’s how a video resume can help recruiters find the best employee.
Showcases soft skills, saves time, and promotes credibility
The video resume being a live visual aid is helpful for recruiters because they can see firsthand the soft skills of a job seeker. Instead of merely just reading pieces of paper with skills written on it, recruiters can now gauge an applicant from the way they expressed themselves on their video resume. This will then cut down the average pre-screening time, especially for jobs that put emphasis on communication skills.
Employers will be able to save time from a short 45 second to 2-minute video and put their attention to other things at work instead of spending the majority of their working hours pre-screening and calling applicants to schedule an interview appointment. Apart from that, they will also be able to know how credible the applicant is based on their video resume which also enhances the interview process to a more comfortable and personal approach.
Support specific skills
Creating a video resume requires a few technical skills and creativity since an applicant has to use devices at their disposal to create their own. Recruiters will easily see those skills on display from the overall quality of the video they submitted.
Job Pinoy wants recruiters to know that they brought video resumes here in the Philippines not to completely render the traditional paper resume obsolete but to support it. That is possible with all companies, especially focusing on particular skills that they need.
Summing it up, video resume improves the recruitment process by putting a face on a job seeker’s traditional resume. Who better to sell themselves on the job market than the job seekers themselves. Video resume puts both the applicant and the employer to a better position whilst undergoing the whole recruitment process, boosting the entire experience.
