CazVid announces its arrival in Santiago to innovate in the Chilean labor market
With the intention of streamlining the recruitment process and establishing communication between employers and candidates, CazVid, a free application that allows users to publish job offers and resumes as 30-second videos, today announced its launch in Chile.
Yuvi Shmul, an entrepreneur with more than 20 years of expertise in the digital industry, launched the App in 2020. His goal is to provide a quick, simple, and alluring way to find job or workers while also democratizing access to employment.
We are excited to be in Chile, a nation with a young, vibrant population that is able to adapt to the difficulties and changes in the modern world. Since it provides a unique and efficient method of seeking for employment and workers, we think CazVid can significantly improve the Chilean labor market.
An innovative software for finding employment and workers
CazVid is a cutting-edge platform that enables users to make and share brief films to highlight job offers for employers and candidates’ qualifications, experiences, and motivations. This streamlines the hiring process and eliminates the need to look through lengthy, static CVs in the conventional style.
The business, which has its headquarters in Tempe, Arizona, also has operations in Mexico, Colombia, Costa Rica, and, as of recently, Santiago de Chile. With the posting of video resumes and job announcements, it seeks to streamline the hiring process while providing consumers with unique value.
“The idea is that both employers and candidates find in CazVid a fast and effective way to apply for their offers. A video allows you that speed, but also efficiency: you can get to know the candidate or the employing company in advance, long before the personal interview. That saves time, and we all know that time in this day and age is money,” Shmul said.
According to CazVid’s creator, the plan takes into account how consumers currently absorb information. The creation of profiles and job offers, which were previously only possible in static or written formats, is now attempting to incorporate video, which is currently considered by many technological experts to be the most popular format.
CazVid in Chile
When Cazvid arrives in Santiago, the nation is dealing with a difficult economic and social condition brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, in addition to the effects and difficulties posed by the conflict in Ukraine. According to the most recent report from the National Institute of Statistics (INE), this has undoubtedly had an impact on the labor market. The unemployment rate in Chile reached 8% in the quarter between November and January 2023, which indicates that there are both a proportionally significant number of people without employment and businesses that need employees.
Additionally, the severe health crisis encouraged the growth of remote work, which is now a preference that is increasingly sought after by both businesses and employees. A study by the consulting firm Mercer found that 83% of Chilean businesses intended to keep or expand teleworking after the pandemic.
In this situation, CazVid provides a practical and effective solution to locate employment or labor at any time and from any location. “Our mission is to expand access to employment by offering a fast, easy and totally innovative solution to create an interactive labor community with common objectives, and which allows employers to save resources in their recruitment processes, and to candidates greater effectiveness. in their job searches,” Shmul added.
The difference in worth
CazVid stands out from other job applications because it lets users express themselves more effectively through video than through written text. CazVid is also quite simple to use; all you need to do is download the application, sign up, and shoot a 30-second video showcasing the job offer or resume. Once you’ve filtered and viewed other users’ videos depending on your tastes and interests, you may get in touch with prospective employers or prospects via the app.
The App can be downloaded for free from the App Store and Google Play stores and works with both iOS and Android devices. In the United States and a significant portion of Latin America, the application has more than 100,000 registered users. It aspires to achieve similar success in Chile, the remainder of Central America, and the southern cone.
