One-way video interviewing can replace phone screening. This software is becoming a more prevalent tool among recruiters everywhere.  

Remember – One way video interviewing is nothing like Skype.

Of course, video interviewing is not as ideal as face-to-face interviews. However, in some cases, video interviews are better for both the candidate and the recruiter. With 42% of AGR members revealing that they use video interviews in their recruiting process. So why are video interviews the future of your recruitment strategy?

Less Travel Involved

One of the greatest complaints you will hear from candidates is how far they need to travel for just one job interview. The candidate may have even booked time off from their current job to go to your interview. Eliminate this annoyance by using video interviews.

You can invite the candidate to record an interview hosted by companies like FaceCruit. If you wish to hire talent globally, nationally or even locally, use video interviewing software in your recruitment strategy. Because this enables you to hire a number of highly-skilled workers without the constriction of geographical boundaries.

Hire Faster

Video interviews will not replace the face to face process. Use video as an alternative to the first pre-screen phone interview. Using video interviews at this early stage lets employers meet a vast number of candidates quickly and get a better sense of who they are. While this can be done over the phone, video brings people to life and allows them to share their story more personally.

You will have a better idea of candidate’s character because you can narrow down your list of best candidates faster. This significantly reduces the amount of time you spend hiring overall. Here is a simple example. You have 50 applicants. You categorise as 10 green (Suitable), 15 yellow (not sure), 25 red (unsuitable) what is your process? Currently most recruiters would be phone tagging with the green trying to organise a pre-screen phone interview. Thirty minutes is spent on each candidate realising some are not suitable and some are not interested. You now revert to the yellow candidates. You can do 8 video interviews to one telephone call.

Improved collaboration

If you are taking notes throughout an interview, it can be difficult to share feedback with the rest of your team. FaceCruit allows you to record interviews, meaning team members can evaluate a candidate by themselves or as a panel reviewer. This process is done by inviting reviewers (Stakeholders) via email.

Recorded video interviews also mean that team members can replay and rewind any segments that catch their attention. A manager who couldn’t make the interview can suss out a candidate’s character and identify any red flags because video interviewing contributes to improved collaboration and better hires.
