Hello to the folks on recruitingblogs.com. This is my first entry here...and I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Michael Hennessy, and I'm the founder/CEO of a new start-up company called SmashFly Technologies
. We're focused on providing the first job marketing platform on the market today...and so looking to talk with recruiters to find out how they are leveraging various technologies today to help them in their jobs.
My first question is around how recruiters are, or are not taking advantage of the new multi-media technologies that are available today such as video, audio and graphics animation. We're trying to find out if recruiters have started to consider using these muti-media components in their job advertisements, or is this still something that is considered too progressive?
If you have used video, or audio...in what capacity? What has been the results? have you seen increased traffic? Better quality candidates? As we delve into this area with our platform, we'd love to hear both success/failure stories from companies who have started to experiment with these new forms of job marketing.
