Understanding Your Candidates
Regardless of the position, you are hiring for, you hope to receive a lot of interest from potential candidates. The larger the applicant pool, the higher the chance of finding quality candidates. While having a large number of applications is ideal, this definitely poses problems in regards to organization and creating candidate profiles.
There is no denying the fact that you can learn a lot about a candidate by reviewing his or her resume and conducting a phone interview. However, if you truly want to make the best hiring decision, you need to dig a little deeper.
Using Software to Your Advantage
This is where VidCruiter comes into play. With the help of our system, it is simple to create a comprehensive candidate profile. Here are several features that will work to your advantage:
- The system automatically stores every response from the candidate, including all formats: video responses, text responses, skill testing, and multiple choice. If you are collecting the information, you can be assured it will become part of the candidate’s profile.
- It includes all files submitted by the applicant, such as resumes, work samples, and test projects.
- All ratings can be viewed on an aggregate level and broken down by rater. Furthermore, results for reference checks and scores can also be viewed.
