Keywords:Perceived stress, problem-focused coping strategies, selfpresentation, video resumes, video-based job application
The purpose of this study is to explore the job seekersâ€™ acceptance towards producing video resumes for the companyâ€™s video-based recruitment. The study aims to analyse the moderating effect of self-video resumes by experienced and non-experienced applicantsâ€™ 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 applicantsâ€™ 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.
