Job Applications via Video

If companies could use videos as part of the job ads, couldn’t they also use it as part of the recruitment process? As an employer would you believe a CV stating “Proven Sales Skills” or a video clip of the candidate giving her best sales pitch?

Actually this isn’t at all original – it was done 50 years ago by Milt Grant. See if your candidates can beat this pitch.

Wouldn’t it help you in the selection process if you could see people in action before hiring them for certain roles? You could watch a chef, view a presenter, see a sales pitch, an interview, a demonstration of their motor repair skills, a sample of their film direction work…. I’m sure there are others. It could be time consuming so maybe it’s for your shortlisted applicants rather than the hundreds of applicants.

If Milt Grant didn’t inspire you, surely the muppets will.
