Entrepreneur magazine sure thinks so, and has included GetHired.com in its 100 Brilliant Companies 2012 list, an annual look at the brightest ideas, the hottest industries and the most insightful innovators of the year.
Here’s Entrepreneur’s definition of brilliance:
“Brilliance expresses itself in many ways–from the esoteric tinkerings of a mad genius to the profit-heavy balance sheets that illustrate the work of astute executives. Sometimes brilliance is merely a deceptively simple, why-hasn’t-anyone-thought-of-this-before solution to a nagging problem.”
Just shy of four months since our launch, GetHired.com is proud to be among the 100 Brilliant Companies of 2012 in the social media category! In including GetHired.com on the list, Entrepreneur predicts: “Your next job search will take the form of a video résumé.”
The GetHired.com team could not agree more! Here are some reasons that accepting video resumes from job seekers will help your company to execute a brilliant hiring strategy:
- Video allows job seekers to speak for themselves rather than allowing a paper resume to speak for them
- Video saves money in the interview process because it allows more personal interviews without the cost of traveling
- Video saves time in the interview process because it allows them to get a more complete picture of a candidate’s soft communication skills before inviting them in for a series of interviews
- Video resumes are more environmentally friendly than paper resumes
And there you have it.
