How many times have you read “extensive experience” or “great communication skills” on a resume? Then, brought the candidate in for an interview to find out the opposite was true. So much wasted time! So many unexpected surprises!
The good news is that new applicant tracking functionality may allow you to minimize surprises with a video cover letter. During the online application process, companies can now ask candidates to submit a video about how they heard about the position and their qualifications. The video may allow candidates to:
- Become more personable
- Show their creativity
- Build rapport by highlighting their experience
- Reduce data entry (and saves you from reading their stock cover letter)
- Develop trust
Do you allow candidates to submit video cover letters? With myStaffingPro, you could. myStaffingPro offers this functionality free to all of our standard and premium customers. For more information about video cover letters, please contact us at http://lp.mystaffingpro.com/coverletter/
