Casino To Hit Jackpot With Video Resumes

Whether you support casinos or not they seem to be popping up all over the U.S. The good news is that when a casino comes to town, so do hundreds or thousands of jobs. What if you were the person responsible for hiring all of these people? Where would you start? Since these jobs are stable and pay decent wages, tens of thousands of candidates will submit resumes. Have you taken a peek at the latest and greatest sourcing technology?

The "old way" of sourcing candidates (which many people still do) is a complete crapshoot. You spend hours reviewing resumes and attempt to select those you feel might be a fit. The paper is static - it doesn't really tell you anything, still many companies rely on this approach. Even a phone screen isn't bullet proof - it's a complete guess. Wouldn't it make more sense to have a dynamic resume with video, links to social media, graphics, a personality profile and more? Having 80% of a candidates information BEFORE agreeing to an interview is now a reality. Think of the time that could be saved for everyone involved in the recruiting process.

Look to the future and envision how the recruiting process will use today's technology to create efficiencies. Social media sites have changed the way business process works - it is important that we embrace these changes as they create better methodologies and economies of scale. Because technology moves so quickly it is imperative that employees keep pace. As new employees enter the workforce, they will readily adopt these new technologies. You don't want to look like the stick in the mud or appear resistant to change. The good news is this technology is very user friendly and not the least bit intimidating. Give TalentRooster a call - we'll be happy to walk you through the process.
