Creating a perfect resume is vital for everyone in the current competitive job world.
From the ones starting their career to those well settled in their field, everyone requires a resume when looking for a job. And few people can tell you what the ingredients of a perfect resume are. While we all look for these answers, video resumes are making their way into the modern hiring landscape and transforming the way companies acquire talent.
The new trend of video resumes can help jobseekers in many ways.
Firstly, a well-made video resume will automatically make a jobseeker stand out as it is still a novel concept. For example, a young student, Puroshottam, applied for a data scientist job at NoBroker and sent them a video resume. He was instantly recruited by the organisation. After receiving their first-ever video resume, NoBroker is now encouraging candidates to send video resumes. ‘Video resumes help judge the personality of the candidate and shortlist quickly. We are readying ourselves for video resumes for future recruitments,’ Akhil Gupta, founder of NoBroker told ET.
Secondly, video resumes give the hiring managers a quick understanding of the personality of the candidate. Additionally, creating a strong video resume is proof of an ability to create good video content, which may be advantageous in creative professions.
With video resumes becoming frequent, digital technology is indeed on its way to transforming the hiring process. There are a few companies who are working on making video resumes more popular. Here are a few of them.
