With job seekers now spending up to 40 hours a week looking for work, the HRTech platform myPiitch has become the latest start-up to digitalise the recruitment industry through its innovative video-based application.
Through tailored video CVs, applicants have a better chance of showcasing their skills and talent, believes myPiitch. With an increasingly competitive job market, template-based recruitment systems and paper CVs are becoming a less efficient and time-consuming method for hiring. Job seekers are often frustrated from the cumbersome process and limited feedback from employers.
