I have to say I am a bit late with this one and I completely missed Reed’s launch of Jobcast on the 3rd,that’s what happens when you take a holiday I suppose. The only reason I spotted it was thanks to youtube, the beauty of viral marketing.
So having now popped over to Jobcast you cannot help be impressed, their promotional video is excellent and the BBC’s recruitment video appears to be the first to take up their offering, not surprisingly I suppose!
I have to admit that I am not convinced video job portals will succeed, but as it is part of Reed if anyone can make it work they will. I remember many years back when Reed came into the jobboard market, many didn’t think they would succeed and many agencies were skeptical in using them, not only did it work I have even placement the odd candidate from them too, not bad for free a free advert with a competitor.
