2 Reasons Why You Should Use Video to Recruit Your Next Hire

Stand out above your competition with a video that showcases WHY someone should work in your company!

REASON NUMBER ONE: You will attract a higher amount of qualified applicants!

A recruitment video is one of the best ways to showcase your organization’s core values, which will ultimately ensure you attract a larger, more qualified pool of applicants. CareerBuilder recently said that its clients received 34% more applications when they uploaded a recruiting video to their job postings. Why? Because they found that applicants are nearly 80% more likely to click on a job post that features a video, rather than read the standard "wall of text".

Not using a job posting website? (for shame! WHY?!) That's ok- you can use your own website to recruit. A well put together Career page with a recruiting video embedded in it will actually boost your SEO ranking on search engines, particularly Google! The take away here- Attract more clicks, and end up with more applicants.

Consider this: a great story captures your attention. That's human nature! We LOVE stories! A hiring video that tells your company's story can compel the viewer to want to want to apply; especially when they feel aligned with your business's core values, culture, and mission. Now you're looking through a pool of folks who actually WANT to be a part of the story they've just seen!


REASON NUMBER TWO: You promote your brand to your current and potential customers!
