Webcam CVs

Talking CV (www.talkingcv.com) uses the latest computer and webcam technology to create a three-dimensional snapshot of a person combining both employment history and personality.

The software, created by city-based recruitment solution providers, isero.com, is rapidly gaining popularity because it gives employers that all-important initial impression of an applicant without the expense and time demanded of a first-stage face to face interview.

The traditional CV is very limited in what it can say about you, explains Stewart Keiller, managing director of Talking CV! creator and isero.com. You can list your career and achievements but you can't show what you are really like. Your personal qualities such as manner, appearance, communication skills, body language and sense of humour are equally important. Talking CV! helps you capture these merits and set you apart from other job applicants.

Stewart added: Our customers in the recruitment industry tell us Talking CV! is transforming the way in which they can present candidates. They love the way that they can use their PCs to see and hear applicants wherever they are and at any time of day.
