Now, video applications
What is it? Video Resume, a new facility launched by Monster India that allows jobseekers to upload their video clips on the Monster India website in the same way as text resumes. In a month's time, the service will be available to recruiters also and they can search for video resumes in the same way they do text resumes and also receive the video resumes as job applications.
How much does it cost? The service is free.
How is it useful? The new feature allows jobseekers to speak directly to potential employers. By seeing the candidate's presentation skills online, the recruiters can do a preliminary screening before calling people for interviews.
Is it working? Monster claims 30-40 videos are being uploaded every day.
