After launching a new and improved website that boasts better jobseeker interaction, Meet the Real Me is getting the recognition it deserves by industry leaders.
OnRec, the Global Online Recruitment Resource leads with a piece about the Meet The Real Me's new campaign manager, saying that “the new site allows jobseekers to approach employers in a fresh and innovative way”. This fantastic tool is capable of revolutionising the job hunt for anyone beginning their professional careers. With the campaign manager, jobseekers take total control of who sees their profiles, what they see and for how long. Simple 'one-click' options allows candidates to use the power of social media channels to market themselves.
Onrec's article focuses on communication. The way we communicate with each other has changed dramatically in the last 10 years with the introduction of social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. What drives this industry is ease and speed of access; this is mirrored in the service we provide here at Meet The Real Me. We aim to help candidates communicate effectively with employers and vice versa. It has never been more important to use your 45 seconds in front of an employer to full effect. With that in mind, a video is far more dynamic than a written CV.
There has been a marked change in the attitude towards the implementation of video in the recruitment process. Jobseekers and businesses are seeing the value in providing a platform for skills to be demonstrated at first instance. For the jobseeker, they can supplement their CV with their personality, enthusiasm and communication skills. For the employer, this represents a comprehensive way to identify the right candidates earlier on in the recruitment process saving precious time and money.
