Abstract

The purpose of this study is to explore the job seekers’ acceptance towards producing video resumes for the company’s video-based recruitment. The study aims to analyse the moderating effect of self-video resumes by experienced and non-experienced applicants’ in terms of their perceived stress and coping strategies in creating the videos when applying for jobs. The quota sampling method was used to collect data from four faculties in a private university. The conceptual model was developed with constructs consisting of perceived stress, problem-focused coping, self-efficacy, self-presentation and acceptance of video resumes. The model was validated by two-level confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). Subsequently, the moderation effects between the two groups of applicants were computed to uncover different group behaviours. The perceived stress and problem-focused coping responses were found to be significantly related to self-presentations for video resumes. A direct positive relationship was also found between the applicants’ self-efficacy and their acceptance of video resumes. The results of the moderation analysis indicate a significant difference in perceived stress between groups but not in the problem-focused coping strategies.
