In a changing job market, video resumes and social media are quickly becoming the #1 way to find a job

TalentRooster (http://www.talentrooster.com), the world’s leading video resume service, today announced that video resumes and social media are rapidly growing methods job seekers are using to find work. More and more job seekers are adding video resumes to their social media arsenals, uploading this powerful tool to their social network profiles.

Lauren Newman, Communications Coordinator for Adams & Garth says a video resume can make all the difference, “You could have two paper resumes — one may look fabulous, the other average. An employer could very easily overlook the average resume. However, adding a video resume to the mix adds an extra dimension that can make a job seeker really stand out.”

“Companies are savvy and use every possible tool at their disposal to source the best candidates possible,” says TalentRooster CEO and President David DeCapua. “If you have a social media site (and you should have a couple) rest assured that it is being visited by potential hiring managers. Companies seek to hire candidates that ‘get it,’ meaning they understand technology and stay ahead of the curve.”

So is the paper resume dead? DeCapua thinks so. “Using paper to represent yourself is dated and virtually impossible to stand out from other candidates — it’s time for job seekers to move forward,” says DeCapua.

In fact, technology is quickly replacing the paper resume — some companies are now only accepting job seekers on video. Being one of the first to have a video profile enhances job seekers’ opportunities and demonstrates their seriousness about the process of finding a job. Creating a digital video profile on TalentRooster also enables companies to find job seekers through Talent Rooster’s searchable database.

Newman says that this new technology is already proving successful for job seekers, “We had a candidate come in just the other day looking for legal work. We sent her TalentRooster profile over to a law firm, and the turnaround was really fast. She had a great video and she got the job. It’s really rewarding to see that this is helping our candidates and that it’s working.”

TalentRooster connects employers and job seekers through powerful, searchable video resumes and digital video profiles, making it easier for job seekers to be found by employers, and for employers to find the right fit for their companies.
