60% of recruiters have been using videos for hiring and a further 22% are considering using them in the future. Video resumes play an important role in the same.
A recruiter receives an average of 250 resumes for a job application and it is impossible to screen them all. This is probably the reason why you never hear back from many of the recruiters.
Today’s recruiters skim a resume for a mere 7.2 seconds and it is nearly impossible for a text CV or resume to catch the eyes of the recruiter in such a short span.
According to multiple studies, visuals are processed 60,000 times faster than texts. Another reason why you need to switch from a text resume to a visual video resume.
People remember 20% of what they read but remember 80% of what they see. This probably applies to recruiters too!
