In response to the human resource industry’s increasing interest in video capabilities, iCIMS, Inc., has released its newest Power-Up: Video Cover Letter.
Upon request, candidates record a short video using their smartphone, tablet or webcam, and recruiters review the clip as part of their screening process. Job seekers are able to showcase their skills in a way that traditional cover letters simply don’t allow, and recruiters get a sneak peek into a candidate’s personality and professionalism before scheduling an on-site or phone interview. The solution, which will become available to customers in early 2014, is currently in beta inter- nally at iCIMS.
Video Cover Letters will help further a company’s geographical reach for candidates while cutting traveling costs and enabling candidates to better represent themselves.
