Leverage video like the pros to boost your recruitment efforts.

Video_Recruiting

More and more employers are turning to video to differentiate their employment brands and engage with prospective candidates in a powerful and mobile-friendly way. Below are some of the many ways you can leverage video to enhance your recruitment efforts.

Job descriptions

Who says job descriptions have to be boring? Companies like HubSpot are redefining the traditional job description by incorporating video for their featured positions. Now prospective candidates can watch 60-second clips to learn exactly what the hiring manager is looking for in a candidate and why they should consider working at HubSpot. Better yet, the job seeker is immediately introduced to the hiring manager and what it might be like to work for that person before an application is ever submitted.
