ReEvaluate Your Job Search

One of our recruiting firm partners just shared a fantastic story - I've got to pass it on. A candidate came in for a sales position - she was perfect for the job! The recruiting firm sent the resume over to the hiring manager, who sat on the resume..... The recruiter called and shared his excitment about the candidate, "she's perfect for your company - I know your culture - trust me..."! The hiring manager wanted to think about it and circle back later.

A savvy recruiter doesn't wait so he had the candidate create a TalentRooster digital video resume and sent it over to the client. Within ten minutes the hiring manager responded to set up an interview. He hired her the next day!! Just another example of how video resume technology will expedite the hiring process for everyone - It just works.

This got me thinking further - I know a professional video resume works and will increase a candidates chance for hire by 30% or more. We all know that the traditional resume will be dramatically different in the next 12-24 months - it will be digital with video, personality profile, links to social media and more.

To prove both points, TalentRooster will provide our professional video resume services for FREE through the end of September 2010. You can complete the entire process from home - all you need to do is send me an email and I'll send you the link - you won't believe how easy it is OR how quickly you will stand out for the other job seekers still attaching a Word document to an email. Happy Labor Day!!
