Digital transformation is driving innovation in recruitment process. Now, AasaanJobs, a leading recruitment portal for entry-level and mid-level jobs in India, has joined the bandwagon. The recruitment and job portal company has launched Video Job Description, a unique HR initiative which is aimed at easing the process to hire candidates for their clients. The concept for a visual job description was floated by AasaanJobs offers win-win opportunities to both job seekers and head hunters.
Video Job Description feature enables job seekers to make informed career decisions while this feature eases recruitment process by strengthening sourcing channels for picking deserving candidates.
Angel Broking – India’s leading Stock Broking & Wealth management firm, has become the first client of AasaanJobs to be featured under this premium initiative. The video has been exclusively shot for Angel Broking to provide candidates a clear picture of the company they are applying to, the job profile, as well as their career progression in the company. The company has posted two job listings using this format – one for Tele-sales Executives and the other for the position of Field Sales Executives. It also includes a brief description of the company with current employees talking about their own interview, their experience with the company so far, their entry-level salaries, and how they see their journey within the company in the foreseeable future.
Commenting on this launch, Siddharth Gupta, VP, Marketing & PR, AasaanJobs said, “With the introduction of Video Job Descriptions, the overall recruitment scenario in India is set to change in terms of increased transparency and knowledge. This is something that would certainly be welcomed as a value-add, especially in the entry level job marketplace, a segment that has suffered too long from a lack of clear information.”
Commenting on the development, Mr Subhash Menon, Chief – Human Resources & Learning at Angel Broking said, “Video Job Descriptions is an innovative value-addition in the recruitment process, which allows candidates to get a clear idea of the job profiles and help them make an informed decision about their future career path. Watching real people giving a first-hand feel of their experience (on video) is much more effective than reading plain text.”
Apart from Angel Broking, AasaanJobs is planning to expand its Video Job Description services to its other premium clients as well. It is currently in talks with some of them – creating a transparent hiring process that benefits all.
