A new video service, that lets people create their own CVs in order to search for jobs, says it will be offering free service to those who have lost their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic.

FaceCruit managing director Nick Thompson said in a statement that 10 million Australians and 40 million Americans had applied for unemployment benefits during the outbreak and the job market could only get more competitive.

"FaceCruit wants to help people get back on their feet. If you've lost your job due to COVID-19, simply jump on to FaceCruit and click on the Jobseeker tab and we'll show you how you can turbo-charge your CV using cutting edge technology," Thompson said

"FaceCruit's mission is to shake up a recruitment process that hasn't changed much in the last 50 years. When you think about it, it's incredible that employers still shortlist you based on a two-page Word or PDF document. We want to give job seekers the opportunity to make a more personal impact with employers through a quick video introduction.

"We've seen services like Zoom become a commonplace business tool during the lockdown and we're predicting that pre-recorded interviews will be just as important as your resumé when it comes to job applications."

Thompson, who founded the service after 15 years of working in sales leadership and recruitment, said FaceCruit had something to offer both employers and job seekers.

Employers could incorporate the requirement for online video interviews for people applying for positions and job seekers could create an online profile of pre-recorded videos that they could send to employers by embedding their profile link into their digital resumé or cover letter.

Employers would also be able to see other information the jobseeker had uploaded such as qualifications, accolades, and even supporting videos from mentors and referees.

Thompson said organising face-to-face interviews was time-consuming, costly and also incredibly difficult and frustrating because there were so many factors that could disrupt the process, meaning that the employer could well miss out on interviewing someone who was a perfect fit for the role.

"FaceCruit eliminates all of these complications. The candidate can't turn up late to the interview and push everyone back. The candidate could even be in a different country and conduct an interview," he pointed out.

"Not only that, you're less constrained by time and money as to how many interviews you conduct. It's much easier to conduct 50 video interviews than 50 face-to-face interviews."
