Rezoomo to revolutionise résumés with video

Wednesday, 4th September, 2019 4:45pm

A Cork-based talent attraction company has launched an update promising greater efficiency to its clients.

Rezoomo has launched a complete revamp of its online talent attraction platform. The updated platform aims to revolutionise the efficiency and effectiveness of in-house recruitment, with market-leading innovations.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Cathal Doorley and Chief Operartions Officer (COO) Seamus Clinch say they redesigned in line with changing market trends and evolving customer needs.

In an increasingly competitive jobs market, companies struggle to attract talent with traditional text job descriptions. Video can increase the rate of job application by up to 34 per cent, they have found.

Commenting on the relaunch, CEO Cathal Doorley said: “We’ve made video and audio job ads a core part of the Rezoomo offering. We needed to give customers a new and more engaging way to reach candidates. The beauty of video is that it allows companies to really bring a role, organisation, and culture to life, in a way that text never could.”

Headquartered in Cork, Rezoomo have been a pioneer in the world of video recruitment.

“60 per cent of candidates say better communication would improve their recruitment experience. Not only does Rezoomo allow bulk, customisable email communication with candidates, but now we also offer video messaging,” said Seamus Clinch.

Since its inception in 2016, Rezoomo has also been used by job seekers to create digital CVs and enabled candidates to record video introductions. “Getting a candidate on camera, allows them to showcase their personality and enthusiasm for a role. We wanted to give candidates a way to stand out from the crowd, whilst giving employers some early insight into prospective hires,” said Cathal Doorley.

Having already raised €500,000 from Enterprise Ireland and angel investors, Rezoomo is aiming to raise upwards of €2m in the coming months. This funding will be used to power the ongoing expansion of the business, as Rezoomo moves into the UK market.
