Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 28, 2009
For the thousands of job seekers who are searching for that dream job, finding a way to stand out in the crowd is getting easier, thanks to a new service, Guugos.com. Guugos.com produces customized video cover letters which brings a personal element back into the resume, pre-screening and hiring process.
Guugos.com's objective is to empower potential candidates and employers to learn more about each other faster, while virtually giving a face and voice to the name on the resume. With a Guugos.com video cover letter, a candidate presents his/her qualifications and interests just as if they were sitting across from a hiring manager.
"Text-based resumes and cover letters have remained the standard way to present oneself to HR departments for decades," said Guugos.com Founder/CEO Steven Brooks. "Not only do many qualified candidates get lost in the shuffle, but employers have limited ways to screen and evaluate job seekers before a face-to-face meeting. Guugos.com puts the humanity back into the hiring process that saves both time and money."
In their attempts to improve their job search, many candidates invest in a range of services or products such as resume writers, targeted web-sites, and counselors. Guugos.com is a new and exciting alternative method that enables the candidate to virtually knock on the doors of HR departments, allowing companies to see and hear the job candidate as a member of their team. Guugos.com is the future of job placement, as it marries streaming video to online job websites, while reducing costs and saving time.
"In the same time that it takes to read a candidate's resume, a hiring manager can view the candidate as he/she presents a video cover letter in a real world setting," said Brooks. "We're leveraging the capabilities of streaming video to give job candidates an unparalleled professional, competitive edge."
How It Works
Job seekers can visit Guugos.com to register for their video cover letter. They will receive a fulfillment kit and a telephone call from a Guugos.com counselor to review their background and begin to build the script for their video. This personalized counseling ensures that we present the candidate in the best possible way to illustrate their personality and their aspirations.
Candidates then film the video introduction at a Chicago-based film studio which utilizes state-of-the-art, hi-definition technology. Finally, Guugos.com edits the video and sends applicants a link to their video that they can access for one year following filming. Job candidates will have a professional 90-second video cover letter to send to an unlimited number of potential employers.
The guidance, production, filming and editing are available for a low, tax-deductible fee of $200.00. For recent college graduates the fee is $150.00.
Guugos.com is a privately-owned, web based enterprise headquartered in Chicago, IL. The company is engaged in offering video based resume/personal introductions for job seekers and companies looking for qualified candidates. For more information, visit http://www.guugos.com
