Although most candidate CV's or resumes are known to be rigid, dull and boring, so many companies still base their recruitment decisions on them. If you are doing this, how many potential superstars are you rejecting from your Talent Pipeline. This applies as much at Leadership level as it does at the more junior levels.

As an Executive Search Consultancy we receive a lot of speculative CV's from Senior level candidates hoping we are working on an outstanding role relevant to them. The truth is that without meeting them or viewing some engaging piece of video, it is very hard to really understand the magic they can bring to our clients.

So that said, how brave is the world of recruitment to put paper CV's in the bin and find socially enaging ways to drill down and really understand candidate behaviour, personality and future potential?
