If you are using or considering video as a staffing or recruiting company, Vipe is offering a free benchmarking report to help you set & manage expectations. We analyzed a sampling of 25K videos  to see how usage trends have changed over the past 3 years – and some results were surprising!

For example, did you know that if you remotely invited a candidate to record videos on their own, you could expect a 2.5 day turnaround in 2009, but in 2011 the average response time is less than 6.5 hours?!

The following topics were reviewed:vipe video cheat sheet - video trends in the staffingindustry

I’m excited to head to CSP Orange County to give my Web 2.0 & Staffing talk!

November 19, 2008 Leave a comment

I just want to write a quick note to say I’m really excited to head down to Orange County tomorrow to give my Web 2.0 & Staffing talk. In times like these it is especially important to know how to make the most of various tools that are out there.

Web 2.0 can be an overwhelming concept, and in my experience, many are talking about it, but few have described how it can actually affect the bottom line for recruiters.

That’s the point of my talk and I’m looking forward to a fun time!
