The interest in video resumes does suggest that candidates continue to search for a better way to represent themselves
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) December 6, 2007
The goals of video resumes are worthy. Candidates want to differentiate themselves and employers want to learn something about the prospective candidate’s workplace persona and character.
"Many of the early video resumes have been criticized by corporations and recruiters who not only dislike the uneven content and quality but employers concede they are ill-prepared to work with video resumes," wrote Rusty Weston, founder and chief blogger at MyGlobalCareer.com.
Résuméfit has developed an alternative for allowing employers to gain additional valuable insight into a candidate’s workplace persona. "The interest in video resumes does suggest that candidates continue to search for a better way to represent themselves," said Tom Schmidt, Résuméfit president and founder. "Résuméfit provides an alternative to the video resume that gives employers true value in providing insight into a candidate’s workplace persona."
This year’s college and university graduating students can especially benefit by completing Résuméfit ’s "next gen" resume process. Much of what a college student brings to their prospective employer is who they are.
Résuméfit has the ability to scientifically measure a candidate’s 29 workplace personality traits and up to 54 workplace competencies, which give employers insight into a candidate’s workplace persona. Résuméfit can benefit both the candidate and prospective employer by allowing candidates to better represent themselves and employers to make more well-informed candidate selection decisions.
Candidates complete a workplace specific assessment one time and then upload their MS Word resume. Once the data is inserted in the candidate’s resume, the document is digitally signed using asymmetric cryptography, which is a class three code signing certificate issued by VeriSign™. The digital signature gives the candidate’s resume proof of data integrity as well as provides the reviewer bullet-proof document alteration detection. Since the resume is in MS Word it can be seamlessly integrated into past, present and future hiring processes. No special software or hardware is required by anyone to open and read the document.
Résuméfit is founded on integrity, innovation, a ceaseless quest to represent candidates in the most complete and scientific way possible, and to provide hiring managers the ability to reach more objective hiring decisions. Résuméfit ’s comprehensive Integrated Evidentiary RÃ©sumÃ© System™ (IERS™) allows candidates to embed authentic and relevant soft skill testing information from cognitive assessments into their resumes. Résuméfit offers two assessments with one geared to the professional who has been in the workforce and the other geared to the specific environment of a student. Both assessments are based on the Center for Applied Cognitive Studies’ WorkPlace Big Five ProFile™ (WorkPlace™) that measures 29 unique workplace personality dimensions and 54 workplace capacity competencies. Résuméfit is the first company to enable portable, tamper-proof, digitally-locked assessments in a resume.
