I'd love to hear your thoughts on James Ballard's recent announcement (https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6290836887049371648/).
When moving from traditional written CVs to video CVs, what issues or concerns might that throw up?
For example, I'd suggest that unconscious bias could be a factor. It might favour 'introverts', or those who have more client facing, outgoing roles. It could affect older candidates who don't have the technology. It could widen the potential for racial discrimination, or at least discrimination based on looks. It might even favour those without mental health issues.
Can we mitigate those potential risks, in some way?
Do the benefits of video CVs outweigh the issues with written ones?
Or is it just time for the recruitment/OD world to catch up with the pace of tech change?
