February 17, 2016 -- Happy Minds has launched a new feature in its already successful mobile application, the feature to upload selfie video resumes. The launch was done on October 22, 2015 and it is a huge success. This new feature that allows job seekers to upload their selfie video resumes is an innovative approach in India and is taking the recruitment industry by storm. Hitherto, recruitment's followed the conventional procedures of uploading hard copy or soft copy resumes to prospective employers. This is now made redundant by Happy Minds.
A conventional resume, which would run into several pages, would only get a few seconds of attention of the recruiters according to research. It would only serve the purpose of highlighting the qualifications of the candidate. This system was found to be cumbersome both for the candidate preparing the resume and those who have to read it.
Though many have questioned this, it was only recently that many companies started to accept innovative methods of making resumes. This not only serves to describe the candidate, it would also showcase the creativity of the candidate and would be a test of his/her soft skills. Infographic resumes were the first to come, and was easily accepted.
With advancements in technology, the concept of video resumes had caught on a few years ago. The candidate would have to sit in front of the webcam and start with a brief introduction. Later, the candidate would describe in detail about his/her qualifications and what he/she would do for the company. This was a huge hit with both the companies and the candidates.
As mobile technology evolved, and since a huge percentage of internet users came from mobile internet users, the idea of having a selfie video resume via a smartphone had come across. Happy Minds pioneers this approach in India. They had already gained reputation in the staffing industry by taking the existing turf to the mobile realms. Their job app had been received very well in the market and those who use it feel that the both the cost to hire and the time to hire decreased significantly. They also found that with increased reach for their job post, the quality of hire increased significantly.
With the advent of selfie video resume apps, the process of recruitment is considered to be much easier now. The sheer ease of use, and the agility of the process is enticing enough for many companies to consider this.
