Doing some research this week on Recruitment Videos in advance of the Mobile & Video in Recruitment Conference happening today, I came across many great (and many poor) videos for recruiting and employer branding. Here are my personal top 5 great recruitment videos. They’re all funny (extremely), some were expensive to make, others not so much and one was even done on a single take!
First up is my absolute fave which we used snippets of in our recent great graduate recruitment video. It’s from a now defunct Brazilian job board called DreamJob.com and features the “Worst” Job in the world, a Massage Therapist for models. Classic!
This next one is by CareerBuilder.com aired on Superbowl weekend. Most of CareerBuilder.com’s videos are hilarious, so I’d urge you to check them all out!
This is from Monster, aired in the UK, and we got a great chuckle here! I’m sure we all have Mondays like these!
Shot in ONE SINGLE take, this video isn’t obviously for recruitment, but the team at Connected Ventures got together over a case of beers and lip-dubbed their way to a brilliant viral video. On their channel in Vimeo, one line: “We did this video one night after work. We are a company called Connected Ventures, a group of friends who work for: Vimeo, CollegeHumor, Busted Tees, and Defunker .… and, we’re hiring“
This is by Barclays for Graduate Recruitment – excellent idea, really outside of the box (for a bank), expensive… but it goes to show that great ideas are the spark!
I know that’s our 5, but here’s a bonus one from a little know company (at least in Ireland and the UK) called Elastic Path, showing “what it’s really like to work at Elastic Path”. Love this:
Have you come across a video for recruitment or employer branding that went viral? Put the link to it in the comments, we’d love to see it!
