Advanced Resources is First in Chicagoland Area to Introduce Digital Video Resume Technology, the Latest Innovation Intended to Improve the Hiring Process

Cutting-edge technology enables area employers to see and hear candidates prior to an interview.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 02, 2011

The unemployment rate in the Chicagoland area continues to hover between 9-10%, creating a highly competitive job market with hundreds of candidates applying for every open position. Advanced Resources LLC, a locally based staffing firm and talent solutions provider, has announced that they are the first to introduce CareerClip digital video technology in the Chicagoland area.

The Internet continues to be a powerful medium for companies and job seekers alike. With over 200,000 video resumes posted on YouTube, it's clear that the role of a resume (or CV) is rapidly evolving. Advanced Resources recognizes and embraces the vital role that video and social media are playing in today's hiring process.

Advanced Resources' applicants highlight their qualifications in digital videos, which can then be sent to clients electronically before meeting Advanced candidates in person. This innovative advancement in recruiting offers value to clients in streamlining and shortening the interview process.

It also gives applicants the opportunity to stand out among dozens of competitive job seekers. CareerClip video resumes from Advanced Resources allow job seekers to showcase their abilities beyond the capabilities of a traditional paper resume. Prospective employers can see, hear, and “get a feel” for how an applicant presents themselves. It's estimated that a professional digital video profile can increase a candidate's chance for being hired by thirty percent or more.

“Our clients are finding tremendous value in the ability to observe candidates visually before meeting in person,” said Rich Diaz, President of Advanced Resources. “Attracting and retaining top talent is crucial for any business' success, and it can take a lot of time and money. Our Career Clip video technology helps our clients reduce their time-to-fill and cost-per-hire. Our clients can assess a candidate based on much more than a paper resume, and our talented candidates have a much greater probability of being hired.“

Advanced Resources has partnered with TalentRooster to manage their CareerClip digital video resume technology. Based in Columbus, OH, TalentRooster is a leading provider of digital technology. "We are really excited to be in Chicago with Advanced Resources,” said TalentRooster CEO David DeCapua. "Given Chicago's demographics, we're confident this technology will be well received."
