Novel approach to online recruitment

Posted: July 19, 2010 in Corporate website, Online recruitment

[tweetmeme source= “jsnrss” only_single=false] I just came across these guys Mind Valley after installing some of their educational  iPad apps for my young kids. After reading through their site, it turns out that they actually have some pretty strong (and inspiring) visions about how to grow their start-up business, with a big focus on getting the right talent.

Most interestingly, they don’t accept standard CV’s, rather they take online applications via video interviews. They ask candidates to upload their ‘cover letter’ by video to YouTube.

Fascinating stuff! Not sure how this would / could work for bigger corporates (I can also see this raising all sorts of other issues) but it definitely demonstrates a novel and different way to make online recruitment more interesting!
