Children's Mercy Hospital offers chance to apply for jobs via video

Spechelle Day

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Landing a job at Children's Mercy Hospital just went Hollywood. The hospital is offering an optional process for job seekers called Introduce Yourself. It's a video job application using an app powered by HireVue.

Molly Weaver, director of employment at Children's Mercy, was inspired to offer job seekers the chance to record a video and answer questions before completing applications. She realized that some applicants, especially Millennials, did not want to complete lengthy paperwork; and some people were applying for positions beyond their skill level and experience..

"We are not looking for the production quality; we're trying to get to know that person as they answer the questions and find out if they are a fit for Children's Mercy and what position would be the best fit for that individual," Weaver said.

Since the program started a year ago, almost 100 video applicants have been hired at Children's Mercy.
