It's hard to calculate how much time and energy this approach to hiring will save our firm. People who are willing to make the effort to showcase themselves in a video introduction are setting themselves apart from the crowd.
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (PRWEB) July 29, 2008
According to Greg Rokos, president of FutureResume.com, "Most employers immediately see the benefit to the FutureResume.com technology approach to hiring. When hiring managers come to the job board site, they can not only look at a paper resume, they also see a one- to two-minute video resume introduction of the candidates they find of interest. The job seeker's personality and purpose are showcased in the video resume. It's like having a mini-interview before actually spending time and money on a live interview. And, in fact, hiring managers can just push a button and schedule a video conference interview with any candidate who meets the criteria. This approach helps companies find the best candidates most efficiently. Plus, companies can be featured on our web site in their own video profiles, letting them display their corporate culture for the job seekers."
Wayne Cassard, system director, human resources for The Valley Health System, commented, "It's hard to calculate how much time and energy this approach to hiring will save our firm. People who are willing to make the effort to showcase themselves in a video introduction are setting themselves apart from the crowd."
FutureResume.com went live for job seekers in July and candidates are even now beginning to post their resumes and video resume introductions as part of their job search. The job board will be available to companies wanting to post employment listings in September. The cost will be $299.00 per month, a substantial savings over most job search boards. Corporate partners, however, are listing their jobs today, giving them exclusive access to the job seekers until September 1. The partners are also featured on the FutureResume.com web site and FutureResume.com is preparing their video profiles for posting.
"We are proud and honored to have these fine companies join us from day one," said Theo Rokos, co-founder and board member of FutureResume.com. "It's a real vote of confidence for this new approach to hiring."
FutureResume.com was founded in June 2008 by two brothers from Southern Calif., Greg and Theo Rokos, with years of experience in executive search and sales management. Their concept was to bring together ideas that had been around the edges of the hiring experience for awhile — specifically video resume and video conferencing — and make them central to a new job board to enable the best companies to find the best people. Job seekers make one- to two-minute video introductions that they post with their resumes on the job board site, thus going the extra mile to showcase themselves and demonstrate commitment. In addition, companies can produce a two-minute video showcasing the benefits of their workplace to improve their recruiting efforts. Hiring managers save time and money finding the right candidates for the job by reviewing the video resume introductions. Then they can push a button to schedule a video conference. No matter how many places a job seeker may be searching for a job, FutureResume.com is the one place where they can stand out from the crowd.
FutureResume.com is located at 20311 SW Acacia Street, Suite 240, Newport Beach, Calif., 92660. More information can be found on FutureResume.com or by calling (949) 553-8331.
FutureResume.com, the unique new job board that uses the video resume, the Internet and video conferencing to let job seekers stand out from the job search crowd and saves companies time and money in the hiring process, today announced the signing of new corporate partners that have been first to support the FutureResume.com hiring concept. The corporate partners are featured on http://www.FutureResume.com, and until September 1, have exclusive access to job seekers joining the FutureResume.com site.
