Ge dina platsannonser liv med Monster Studios

Did you know that 80% of all internet traffic today is moving material *? In recruitment processes today, we therefore need to increase the amount of videos in order to hang in the fast turns digital. Monster leads the development of launching a very user-friendly app; Monster Studios.

What is Monster Studios?

The app allows you to record, edit and publish video clips in a few minutes to complement your classifieds.

In this way, you can easily humanize the recruitment process and give your employer brand and corporate culture a natural place to be seen, without having to produce a lavish and resource-intensive film. According to a study by the American Forrester Research Institute, the effect of moving material is striking; one minute of explanatory video corresponds to up to 1.8 million written down words. This means that a job ad containing video will inevitably attract more attention than a regular text ad. At the same time, candidates get a more authentic and credible impression of the company, there are real people behind the scenes.

Candidates value openness

Today, we are accustomed to great transparency in many parts of society, although it is often difficult to gain insight into different companies’ departments, values ​​and, not least, culture. Workers attach great importance to open communication, according to Monster’s survey Recruitment trends 2019 in collaboration with the University of Bamberg. Nearly 45 percent of the surveyed employees in the study valued transparency within a company that was desirable and important.

Save thousands of dollars a year

In addition to helping candidates understand their possible future duties and getting to know organizations in a more personal way, this user-friendly app can almost revolutionize the recruitment market. You no longer need to spend large parts of the budget on expensive video editing tools or agencies that will produce grandiose concepts. These movie clips can also be experienced as very reworked and fixed. But job seekers do not want to see reality as a dream scenario – they want to see it as it actually is.

Then the countdown begins: ”3 … 2 … 1 …”
