A letter to the hiring world – it’s time to catch up

Dear hiring world,

It’s time to catch up.

TikTok, Instagram Reels, LinkedIn Live, Zoom – everywhere we look, video is playing a more important role in the way we consume media and interact with our networks. So why is the hiring world so far behind when it comes to video?

Rewind ten years, and it makes sense. Smartphones were just becoming commonplace, there wasn’t ubiquitous wifi, and people thought being on camera meant you were on your way to Hollywood or Funniest Home Videos.

“Today we are just scratching the surface of the power of video.”

Big Tech has seen that video is the way of the future. The education sector is catching on. Real estate is driving ahead. So why is it that when it comes to searching for a job or looking for staff, we scroll through boring job ads or download CVs hoping that when we meet them, they’ll be as qualified and engaging as they looked on paper?

Vidaura is on a mission to bring the hiring world up to speed by putting video front and centre.

Companies want to profile what they have to offer, their culture and why you should work there. Video does this far better than a job ad.

Job seekers are more than a bit of paper. They have a personality, a voice and an aura that you simply can’t feel through writing form.

Hiring world, it’s time to catch up. It’s time to bring video to the top of the funnel.
