Webinars & Talks


If a picture says a 1,000 words, what does your video say?

Candidates’ informational and emotional needs change as they move through the recruiting process and having the right content, at the right time, is powerful. But traditional video has been prohibitively expensive to produce. This webinar will show you how to have the best of both worlds – engaging content at minimal cost.

Why, When and Where Recruiting Videos Work

You can spend an excessive amount of money on recruitment video, or you can film on your phone for free, but how are you sure you are creating a video that will positively and measurably impact your results? There are many approaches to recruitment video, but not all of them are successful. Join this 45-minute master class in results-driven video. Your learning will include:

  • Matching your video to your desired result
  • Getting your videos seen
  • Spending exactly the right amount
  • Avoiding mistakes that reduce credibility.
