FaceRecruiters...New Innovative Way to Find a Job

  1. 0 So I found a healthcare job search website. It sounds interesting. You create a profile, which includes a pic, a video, and your resume for potential employers. In the video you pretty much sell yourself to the employer and tell them why they should hire you. I think they only have contracts with facilities in Southern CA.

    There are definitely pros and cons to this approach, but I think this is a very interesting concept. Have any of you heard of this company? What do you think about this new approach to job hunting?

    Hmmm...its definitely not a service I'd use.

    Posting a picture and video of yourself makes it easier for the employer to discriminate based on race, weight, looks, age etc.

    Sounds like video dating.
    The concept conjures a mental picture of Barbie and Ken applying for a job...

    I'm surprised it took this long for something like this to eventually come to online job hunting. It's not just for nursing, it's for an entire plethora of jobs and opportunities. I like it. It's not looks that most employers are looking for, it's confidence and you can't hide that in a video. I think this type of online job search will become common in the near future.

    I suppose so, but it circumvents the intention of the EEOC. We all know employers discriminate, but I still believe they should at least go through the motions of the process beforehand.

    Being from Southern California, I'm going to go way out on a limb and say that while I'm sure finding confident people is part of the deal, it's secondary to a resemblance to Barbie or Ken.
