We have seen an increased interest for recruitment videos among all companies, but especially manufacturing companies lately
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 11, 2007
Earlier this year, CareerTV hosted a great new recruitment video for Ford Motor Company, designed to provide young professionals with more knowledge and better insight of what it takes to work for one of the world’s largest automakers. Ford says a recruitment video gives them an opportunity to showcase the culture of the organization. Barbara Bowen, Manager of Talent Acquisition, uses the tool to reach a broad audience fast and believes it has a much greater impact than other marketing efforts. What CareerTV offers is really a one-stop-shop for the candidates, providing them with more in-depth knowledge about an organization. For innovative companies like Ford, moving forward and embracing new technologies is important, when reaching out to future employees.
Ford employs 250,000 people globally. It produces vehicles under seven different brands and is among the top 100 companies to work for in Universum’s annual survey of college graduates worldwide. In 2006, the automaker generated $150 billion in global sales.
It is a very competitive recruitment market. By using CareerTV, Ford hopes to attract a wider audience and facilitate the hiring of interns and recent graduates.
It is as close as companies can get to meeting with a prospective employer without going there physically, and it is a new impactful tool to get top talent candidates to consider employers.
It’s too early to measure results, but Ford knows that video is one of many marketing tools needed to continue to attract, hire and retain the world’s best people.
"We have seen an increased interest for recruitment videos among all companies, but especially manufacturing companies lately," adds Jim Buttimer, COO at CareerTV. "This is a great way for them to compete with other employers in attracting college students with cutting edge recruiting tools and programs."
