Odro, a Scottish based tech start-up has created a free video interview platform that allows candidates to apply for a job with a CV and a video, standing out from the mountains of CVs received by hiring managers every day.
Odro,which currently works with a number of Recruitment agencies & large employers across the UK, Europe and Asia launched BetterthanaCV.com as a free self interview platform.
A survey of 100 hiring managers across the UK delivered the top 4 questions employers will ask in a first stage interview. BetterthanaCV.com will ask you these questions on video, and attach them to your CV, making sure you stand out from the crowd with your application.
By attaching a self interview video to your CV, you save your hiring manager hours of wasted time on interviews. You also stand out from the crowd with a video showing your inter-personal skills, personality and the ability to add any further information you think is relevant, in an innovative and professional way.
BetterthanaCV.com has been created to help people applying for competitive positions, allowing them to stand out from other candidates.
The average graduate position in the UK has an application to vacancy ratio of around 500/1 – and all you have to differentiate yourself from other candidates is a CV. Theplatform also improves your chances of feedback by over 800% .
74% of candidates requested for next stage interview are subsequently hired after being submitted on BetterthanaCV.com’s technology.
When asked about why people would use BetterthanaCV.com, Ryan McCabe, CEO of Odro, says that:
“When you apply for a new job, that’s your first impression. I’ve interviewed some people with terrible CVs, but are fantastic in person. When I noticed how competitive it is for a graduate to get a new job, for example, I thought we could build something that will help.
“After running the beta tests on BetterthanaCV.com with a few large employers, it is well on it’s way. We have a few plans on how to improve it over time, but for a free service I think we’ve created something pretty special for job seekers.”
