Nate Willis's insight:

Very interesting, I can't believe that over 60% of HR Managers have used video interviews.  I recently completed my first ever video interview for a position with AT&T and it was quite the learning experience.  It definitely adds an extra dynamic to an already challenging position.  The internet and the convenience that it offers is totally taking over the job search process from start to finish.

If you already like being on camera and video...this survey will be good news to you!

 

The HR Pros who participated in this survey already use videos as an interview tool.  Video Interviews are gaining popularity.

 

My advice:  It is never too late to start practicing -- in particular for those of you who don't particularly like seeing yourself on video.

 

Make it a great day!

Nate Willis's insight:

This article examines the growing trend of mobile internet and how it relates to the job search.  Last year, LinkedIn reported that 38% of its visitors were from mobile devices.  Experts predict that this trend will only continue to grow exponentially.  This means that the way people apply for jobs is changing.  Companies will start to make the application process seamless on a mobile device, making it just as easy as applying on a desktop computer.

Nate Willis's insight:

I love this article.  It answered key questions about using an online social network such as LinkedIn during a job search.  In the article, we learn that 80% of companies use LinkedIn to look for and filter candidates for open positions.  This is a crazy amount and it does a great job of demonstrating that the job search now happens online versus paper and pen applications of the past.

Nate Willis's insight:

This article offers suggestions on how to stand out in a digital age where it seems like everyone is present on the internet and on every social platform out there.  They mention creating a Twesume.  No, this is not a typo.  I have never heard this term before but wow, what an eye opener.  They describe a Twesume as a tweet that briefly describes who you are, what you are looking for, and a link for prospective employers to learn more about you.  I like this so much that I am even going to create my own little "Twesume".  I think it is such an exciting thing that we have access to all of these online resources.  I can not imagine how the job search must have been 20+ years ago.  Crazy how fast things change!

Nate Willis's insight:

I found this article very interesting because it gives an argument to all of the other media saying that all of job searching is done online these days.  The article says that in-house methods of recruiting are actually responsible for 59%of hires.  This means that while it might be easy to find opportunities online, networking and "who you know" is still the most effective way to land a job.
