Step by Step Instructions on Producing Your Video Minute
SSi-SEARCH frequently uses web based video during the interview process in addition to phone interviews and, when possible, face to face meetings. Video interviews can bring 75% - 90% of the same value as a face to face meeting with one exception: it removes the barriers of distance. This saves everyone time and money.
Following careful interviews, we create an Executive Profile for each candidate we present to our clients. Rather than conveying information to our clients, we like to present direct representations, such as your resume in its untouched format, and also a video of yourself that you create. These elements present a more objective presentation and one that is also more memorable.
