“TV programmes such as ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘I Want to Work for Diddy’ show the benefits of richly visual recruitment practices that incorporate the views of their audiences;” commented Roy Shelton, CEO of Next2Friends. “Delivering this experience online in a more immediate, accessible and interactive way is a perfect example of how Next2Friends™ can revolutionize existing business practices.”
The use of video in recruitment is a growing trend made possible by advances in web and audio/visual technology. The medium enables hirers and recruiters to gain a feel for a person’s approach and personality in ways only previously possible through face-to-face interviews. With Next2Friends™, candidates can stream directly to the site with their mobile phone or record a video and upload it later.
This is the beginning of what Next2Friends™ hopes will be a highly effective portal for recruiters and employers looking for people to work in the digital space. “Skill shortages in our industry are unfortunately a constant challenge due to its rampant growth;” added Roy Shelton. “We are therefore also inviting corporate hirers and recruiters to tap into this resource and intend to create a community of bright, capable and creative people actively seeking roles that will fuel the next phase of digital evolution.”
