Do Your Job Postings Look Like This, Yet?

At some point in your career, you've searched for a job. You surfed the net and likely ended up on a huge job board with millions of postings. After reading about a position and company, you clicked on a hyperlink and applied. But where did your "application" go? How come you never heard back from anyone, ever? There must be a black hole on the internet as millions of job seekers have this exact experience.....

Here's the problem. Hundreds or thousands of candidates are applying for every position and it essentially takes no effort. If you've got a Word document resume, you simply click on the "apply here" link, attach your resume and send it. How is this supposed to provide you an edge over other job seekers? How is the HR generalist supposed to notice your application over the others that have applied as well? The answer is you need to investigate video resume technology and show that HR person the difference!

Let's examine this scenario from the HR perspective. How could this laborious process be improved? Surely there has been an innovation in technology to help expedite this ages old process. Introducing TalentRooster technology! Today, HR professionals can take their traditional job posting and add relevant questions they would like every candidate to answer in both video and writing. Candidates that make the minimal effort to apply would be required to create a digital video profile answering these specific questions. Now HR can see and hear every candidate BEFORE ever committing to a phone call or interview. Better yet, every candidate is kept in a video repository where HR can go back and review candidates, forward them to appropriate hiring managers or purge them from the system. This techology is extremely user friendly so long as a candidate is capable of clicking "next" and pressing a space bar - it truly is that simple. There's no doubt that video will play a huge role in the future of the recruiting process - it just makes sense. Want to see a sample? Click here then contact TalentRooster.com to learn more!
