We at Collingwood Executive Search have recently been asked by a client to consider using Video CV's for a Managing Director role we were recruiting for them in the UK.

Whilst I fully embrace Social Media and Content Marketing and would like to think that we innovate in the field of digital marketing, I really don't feel ready to start asking passive, headhunted candidates to video themselves as part of an Executive Search process.

I can see the attraction for my client, there is nothing better than seeing the whites of a candidate's eyes, however, I can't yet consider it appropriate.
