No More Résumés, Say Some Firms - WSJ.com

Union Square Ventures recently posted an opening for an investment analyst.

Instead of asking for résumés, the New York venture-capital firm—which has invested in Twitter, Foursquare, Zynga and other technology companies—asked applicants to send links representing their “Web presence,” such as a Twitter account or Tumblr blog. Applicants also had to submit short videos demonstrating their interest in the position.

Union Square says its process nets better-quality candidates —especially for a venture-capital operation that invests heavily in the Internet and social-media—and the firm plans to use it going forward to fill analyst positions and other jobs.

Union Square Ventures a récemment posté une annonce pour un analyste d’investissement.

Au lieu de demander un curriculum vitae, la société NewYorkaise de capital risque, qui a investi dans Twitter, Foursquare, Zynga et d’autres entreprises de ce type a demandé aux candidats d’envoyer des liens représentant leur “présence sur le Web», comme un compte Twitter ou un blog Tumblr. Les candidats devaient aussi présenter des courtes vidéos démontrant leur intérêt pour le poste.

Union Square affirme que son processus permet de mieux cibler la qualité des candidats, surtout pour une opération de capital-risque qui investit massivement dans l’Internet et les médias sociaux et l’entreprise prévoit de l’utiliser à l’avenir pour des postes d’analyste et d’autres emplois.
