Houston, TX (Vocus) May 11, 2010
Employers now will be able to access top talent through the latest medium of video job postings. Candidates view the video job announcements through internet, television and their mobile devices. Career Partners International (CPI), the world’s largest partnership of career transition and coaching firms, entered into a joint venture with Job Search Television Network (JSTN) last December. CPI Houston is introducing this innovative product to the Houston recruitment market at the annual HR Houston Symposium May 12 – 13 at Reliant Center.
In addition to video job postings, employers can also enhance communication of their employer brand with videos about the culture of their organization, that can be placed on their website and all social media sites where candidates are actively and passively seeking opportunities.
