Today’s HR Views on VideoCVs
HR manager or a Human Resource manager is the primary interface between a company and a potential employee. HR managers are the first people to receive an applicant’s resume for a job profile. The candidates are first and foremostly shortlisted by the HR managers after which they are transferred to the manager of the department head for further rounds. HR is the one who is responsible to begin the process of recruitment and who manages the follow-ups on the selected/hired candidates. HR is also authorized to manage the human resource throughout the working; therefore it is important to understand the HR’s views on a Video CV since it is most likely to be screened by them first.
A Video CV being an advanced source of potential employee’s information should be easy to understand and transfer by any person with a normal human intelligence as it is not only screened by a particular department but is processed at different levels of a company, HR being the first. Since the role of an HR is the most crucial in the recruitment process, following are the few benefits of a Video CV from the point of view of an HR manager.
An HR is responsible to conduct the process of recruitment and staffing of employees for a company therefore it is obvious for them to receive tonnes of applications for different job roles of a company. They are the common denominator for selection of every department’s employees and so they are always swamped with huge databases for various roles. Considering the number of applicant’s profiles they receive for a single vacancy, they understand how difficult it might get to distinguish the applicant’s profile even after their careful selection.
This makes them a fair supporter of a Video CV which helps them in distinguishing different profiles and also eases the process of classification into different departments and job roles.
Among the bunch of resumes received by the HR managers, there could be a substantial portion of profiles which may be absolutely irrelevant for the job profile or which may be of untrustworthy candidates.
A Video CV, therefore, emphasizes on the genuineness of the applicant’s profiles since a video make the candidates appear more appealing and reliable, making it easier for HR managers to consider and focus on the genuine candidates only.
Easily Identifiable adjustment scope.
The Video CV focus on the personality aspects of the candidates. It makes it easier for the HR managers understand the human, his/her actual self behind the profile which helps them to verify if the candidate would fit into the company’s environment or not, and to what extent. It further helps the HR managers to know about the adjustment capabilities of the respective candidate making the recruitment process simpler, and efficient.
The HR manager is loaded with a lot of selection, hiring, and management responsibilities of the human resource of a company. The process of recruitment also demands strict attention of the HR managers for the effective scrutinization of the candidates' profiles which leads to accumulation of huge database with them.
Video CVs therefore help the HR managers in saving a lot of their time by helping them with easy profile classification and lessens their efforts of the selection and its management procedure.
Simplifies the Understanding
One of the best advantages of a Video CV for an HR manager is that it simplifies the understanding of the applicant’s complete profile for them as the content flow in a Video is easily interpreted and since all the important information is highlighted by the applicant themselves, the HR doesn’t have to narrow down the crucial information for processing the profiles further.
If the Video CV could be helpful in so many ways at the primary stage of the recruitment process itself, then it is also easily convenient to measure its efficiency for the rest of the hiring process as well which is probably quite high.
