Have you ever concluded an interview with a potential employee and thought, “What a complete and utter waste of time that was!” Well, you’re not alone. Happens to the best of us. In a time when a majority of positions attract hundreds of resumes, and turnover is as costly as ever, wouldn’t you like to make sure that the only candidates walking into your office are actually a fit for the position? Wouldn’t you like to stop wasting your time?
Video resumes are a tool that allows you to “meet” job seekers before the initial interview. By being able to see the candidate and listen to them talk about their skills and experiences in their own words, you can get a glimpse of their soft skills and personality. This is extremely important in that, if you have a stack of resumes with practically identical technical skills, you can see which candidates are a better fit for the position from the get-go.
Utilizing video resumes in your hiring process can reduce the time and money spent on finding and selecting a new employee. Not only that, video resumes also decrease turnover, as they allow for better employee/company fit. Never waste another minute of your life interviewing someone who isn’t right for the position or your organization. Video resumes allow you to be confident that you’re selecting your future employee from a group of qualified and talented candidates who would all fit into your company’s culture seamlessly.
