Why using video job ads will completely change your game


It’s safe to say that the traditional job ad is dead. Video content is already the most dominant form of internet media. By 2019, 80% of everything we see on social media will be visual, and it looks as though that number will just continue to rise.

It can be quite a challenge to keep up with technology these days but, thankfully, Jobylon is here to help you! Our collaboration with Videoburst means that we can easily turn your job ad into a beautiful, customized video – ready for you to share with the world.

Replacing text-based jobs ads with visual content is without doubt a great tactic to catch your dream candidates’ attention and will in addition boost your employer branding strategy. However, using visuals doesn’t necessarily have to mean high-quality professional video. it could also mean using gifs or infographics as a part of your noise, which in turn will make you look more attractive as a recruiting company.

At the end of the day, we want the targeted audience to feel a certain way and to get a sense of the company’s authenticity. What better way to do this than with visuals?
