The job interview process, from CV writing to face-to-face interviews has been largely the same experience for decades. But as the digital world continues to merge with our offline lives – the recruitment process is starting to do the same, thanks to innovations in the digital recruitment sector (like online video interviews) and the general way that we communicate – take snapchat job applications for example.
The numbers alone show that this change, while slow to start for the recruitment industry, will only continue to accelerate. In 2014, worldwide internet users hit the three billion mark and almost three quarters (72%) of these users are now active on social media. What’s more, as digital natives grow up and start looking for their first jobs, they will expect to start and finish the process online.
