When hiring for positions that require individuals to spend a significant amount of time on the phone, it is important to assess an applicant’s “telephone voice.” The ability to hear how an applicant sounds over the phone can really help to determine if they would be a good fit for any “phone heavy” position.
Traditionally, recruitment teams would have to conduct a phone interview in order to gauge an applicant’s phone conversation skills. Although phone interviews can provide valuable insights into an applicant’s ability to converse over the phone, scheduling and conducting them requires significant time commitments from recruiters. Furthermore, recruiters can often quickly identify poor fits but they are obligated to complete the full phone interview, wasting more than 20 minutes of their time with an unqualified applicant.
VidCruiter has helped a number of call centers and other organizations effectively hire their phone agents. With VidCruiter’s audio interviewing tool, you will receive all the benefits of traditional phone interviews and a whole lot more…
Similar to traditional phone interviews, a VidCruiter audio interview will allow you to gauge how clear and concise an applicant’s voice sounds over the phone and screen for overall voice quality and pronunciation. Unlike traditional phone interviews, audio interviews allow for the addition of applicant testing. A variety of tests are available, such as script reading, that will further enhance your ability to identify top candidates.
VidCruiter’s audio interviews are completed asynchronously, which allows applicants to complete the interview and the hiring team to review the applicant at their own convenience. Conducting the interviews asynchronously means that no time has to be spent coordinating and scheduling an interview. With asynchronous interviews, you are no longer obligated to spend the time reviewing a complete interview if you quickly determine that an applicant will not be a good fit for the role. Every applicant response can be shared with and rated by anyone you wish, which provides even more valuable insights into each candidate.
VidCruiter’s audio interviewing tool not only helps an organization’s hiring team, but was also designed to provide candidates with a positive applicant experience. Audio interviews can can easily be completed anytime from any type of phone. Local and toll-free numbers can be set up in any country, making it as simple as possible for applicants to record their responses. Your organization can even boost applicant engagement and offer a more personalized interview experience by providing applicants with questions that were recorded by members of your team.
It is no longer necessary to rely on time-consuming phone interviews to gauge an applicant’s ability to converse over the phone. With VidAudioInterviewing from VidCruiter, it has never been more easy or efficient to identify the best candidates for any phone-related positions.
