A 2 minute Videeoh CV from the candidates has some real advantages over written CVs. Probably the biggest advantage is that you get to meet the candidate, you can assess their attitude and body language, their tone of voice and generally how they would come across in person.
Research has shown that 80% of communication is non verbal, when you use a written CV you're missing 80% of what the candidate has to offer which means you're basing your interview decisions on just 20% of the available information.
The candidate will be taking you through what they've done, their qualifications, what they're looking forward to doing and generally letting you know more about who they are.
Another advantage is that you will avoid CV fatigue because each candidate will have a face, a voice and a definite attitude and energy of their own. This means that selecting for the interview stage can be much more accurate and efficient.
We have worked alongside recruiters for 10 years at face-to-face recruitment events and they've often told us how difficult it is to decipher written CVs, you can end up trying to read between the lines and mind read the candidates character.
They've told us many times they want to avoid that sinking feeling 30 seconds into an interview after you realise that the candidate is so completely different from their CV and/or phone conversion beforehand that you begin to wonder whether their CV was in fact a complete fiction. We've been reliably told by recruiters that this can happen.
