Empowering companies to strut their stuff in the digital age.

To be seen or not to be seen, that is the question!

The time has come where the advice of “keep your resume to one page” has turned into “keep your video under 60 seconds.”  Not only is our world immersed in technology, but that same technology changes day by day with new versions, styles and shortcuts.  The way our world keeps turning is by having all of the answers at our fingertips and a way to instantly share those findings – and that, is exactly what a Video Interview does.  Video Interviews are an instant answer to all of an employer’s questions: 

- What have they done in the past? 
- Do they present themselves well?
- Do they have good communication skills?  

Those can all be answered by watching a short video.  Once you are finished viewing, and all signs are a “go”, forward it onto your coworkers for further approval.  It’s that convenient, we promise.  

Keeping with that theme is the method of the job search.  Job boards are becoming obsolete by Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook and even Youtube.  For job seekers, Video Interviews are a way of using technology, to find a job, while utilizing a social media site.  They can be done at your own pace, from the comfort of your own home and shared on whatever site you so choose.  Imagine, instead of sending your paper resume as an attachment in an email, you send a completed digital video profile.  You are front and center!  When all an employer has to do is click “play” and there you are streaming on their desktop…it’s a hard thing to forget!
