2014 Will Be The Year of Video: Join The Jobs Revolution With The Placement Gallery

In a year acknowledged by numerous experts as ‘the year of video’, The Placement Gallery are already ahead of the game with JOBVIDDY, the world’s 1stvideo job description tool. The jobs market is more competitive than ever, with corporations and big brand names fighting over the best talent and trying to attract them to their workplace; The Placement Gallery has arrived to help businesses stand out from the crowd with JOBVIDDYs, unique video descriptions that are set to take over the world of online job search.

JOBVIDDYs are a symbol of the growing demand for online video across the globe – branded video content currently reaches 46% of all internet users in the UK, and more than half of these people then go on to click through to a brand’s website. 81% of senior marketing executives now use online video content in their marketing programs, and at least 55% of people watch an online video every single day. Video is big business – and The Placement Gallery is here to take it to the next level.

Andy Kerney, Founder and CEO of The Placement Gallery, says, “In recent years, we have watched as other industries modernised and moved with the times, but the field of employment has stagnated. Recruitment talk continues to be about talent engagement, and through the power of interactive video, businesses now have a platform to be creative, informative, personal and even humorous - all played out through The Placement Gallery’s job board and social media.”

He adds, “Recruitment strategies are changing, and I believe that JOBVIDDY is the future for connecting employers with their potential new recruits.”

The premise of a JOBVIDDY is simple – it’s exactly like posting to any jobs board or social media account. Employers send the URL of the video they want to use (whether it’s a message from the CEO, a showcase of their products/services or an inside view of working at the company) and the key USP’s of their job opportunity. The JOBVIDDY team then make the video fully interactive and post to social platforms, allowing viewers to watch and simultaneously click the JOBVIDDY icons to learn more about the position. They’ll discover why they will love working at that company, the skills needed to excel, some of the rewards they can expect to receive, and other crucial areas that need to be considered when job hunting.  JOBVIDDY is a truly flexible job description that gives employers artistic license to engage with content they consider important to their audience.

With an increasing appetite amongst candidates for mobile job search and video consumption, JOBVIDDY fits perfectly with their lifestyle. Informative and engaging content, video inside video, images and location maps are just some of the types of information that can be aggregated to allow jobseekers to make a more informed decision about what jobs they apply for. JOBVIDDY lets companies engage with talent in their social world, the social channels on which they live their lives.

Video content offers an opportunity to do this better than ever, leading to positions being filled with like-minded candidates that associate with the job, a company’s culture and are ready to succeed. It’s a win/win situation for businesses and candidates, who will find their perfect match on The Placement Gallery.
