Video-led recruitment is becoming more popular by the day, and, with that, comes video CVs. A video CV is a short video pitch that accompanies a job application or written CV. It gives jobseekers the opportunity to present their professional strengths and provides recruiters the opportunity to gain a first impression and a better understanding of the applicant’s communication skills and cultural fit. As well as this, video CVs are a great way to save recruitment time and add a more personal touch to your average job application.
Video CVs have a wide range of benefits. They allow recruiters to:
If incorporated effectively, employers can use video CVs to their advantage and find a high calibre of candidates. Video CVs will give employers the opportunity to identify:
Video CVs clearly demonstrate which candidates really want the position from the onset and those who don’t: some candidates may not respond, will try to get out of recording one or refuse to take part and others will just get on with it and show you what they have to offer.

Video CVs clearly demonstrate skills such as public speaking. They give candidates the opportunity to sell themselves and show you what they have to offer, as well as showcase their personality and, ultimately, make you want to hire them. Employers should, therefore, use this to their advantage and take away key points to probe deeper during the interview.
