Nick also discusses how video can assist in promoting a company’s facilities and increase interest in their job advertisements through video profiles of the company.
“in the same way you can’t get much out of a CV, you can’t get much out of a job spec either and so I think that’s the other area video is going to really play an increasingly important part. ” – Nick Cowdery
