In this work, we have analyzed the perceptions of Master of Business Administration (MBA) enrolled job-seekers towards video resumes along with determining the reasons for preference and non-preference for it. We administered 210 semi-structured self-designed questionnaires among MBA enrolled candidates looking for internships or final year placements of various Indian Universities. They were asked to use a video resume platform followed by filling up a semi-structured questionnaire focussed on gathering viewpoints about the perceived interface features, fairness, validity, privacy. Qualitative data analysis was also done to determine the reasons affecting user’s adoption of platform driven services. Video resumes hosted on video-sharing platforms offer a unique opportunity to both the sides concerned i.e. the job applicant as well as the recruiter. Research on determining video resumes from job applicants’ viewpoints is scarce and this study will add to the paucity of research pool on this topic. Moreover, this is the first study to highlight the issue of security and privacy of video resume platforms and, provide technical recommendations to these platforms from the applicants’ perspective. With this study we hope to reach out to recruiters (practitioners), job-seekers, researchers and information system application developers for better acceptability of the product.
