The Value of the Video Resume

In Employment Help by adminburnettsLeave a Comment

As you may have heard, Burnett’s Staffing is now offering video resumes to our clients and candidates— a service which will save everyone time and money. Don’t believe us? Here’s how Burnett’s makes a difference:

For Employers

Saves Time
Employers who receive video resumes can weed through candidates and get to an offer quicker, allowing them to pick up the highest-demand talent before other employers get the chance. Additionally, if they’re obviously not a fit, the employer has only spent a few minutes on them, rather than blocking out a full half-hour or hour on the calendar.

Finds a Better Fit
When an employer screens a candidates video resume before committing to an in-person interview, you can see immediately how serious they are by their professional dress, appearance, and demeanor; which will allow for a more in depth interview when that time comes.

Saves Money
An employer shouldn’t have to spend more time hiring than they do training their perfect candidate.  By saving time on the hiring process, the company saves money.  The company also saves money by having an easier time finding and acquiring that perfect candidate, which can save a great deal of money on dealing with turnover or a new employee who just doesn’t work out or wasn’t a perfect fit.

For Candidates

A Great Way to Enhance Your Resume
It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s the future of hiring!  Why not take advantage of the opportunity to add another dimension to your resume and stand out among the competition.  Burnett’s also offers professional training and coaching during the process allowing you to put your best foot forward.

Provides a Better Presentation
There’s a limit to how much you can really strut your professional stuff on your resume.  A video resume allows you to do many of the things that you can do in person in a short amount of time: show off your professional demeanor and communication skills, display relevant information you want to convey about yourself, and even allows you the opportunity to put a face with your resume.
