Stop Doing Them… Automate Them!!!
Employers often wonder, “How do we perform better phone interviews?”
The answer is simple. Automate the process by using a video interview instead. This way the recruiter can simply send the applicant the questions via email and then the candidate can answer them all on their own time. The time saved by the recruiter can thus be spent searching for better and better questions. (like here)
Automating your hiring process saves you time and money and VidCruiter is one of few companies that allows you utilize this process. What separates us from our competitors is that in addition to text based queries we also have video questions, which gets the relationship between the HR department and the applicant off to a vibrant start. Right from the beginning you can give the applicant a taste of the culture of your company and give them the feeling of talking to a real person instead of dealing with impersonal text.
However should you choose you have the option to ask these interview questions via video and receive text replies. Why would I want to have a text based response option? Well what if your applicants don’t have webcams? Would you not be discriminating? And how many conversations have you had just today via email? It has become the norm to have conversations by typing so why not protect yourself from lawsuits in HR and have applicants respond by typing? The future of HR is video interviews but few realize a video question and a typed responses get a much higher likability factor from the job seeker. How do we know? We have polled over 1500 of them and that is what they told us.
Over the next 5 years video interviewing will completely replace all forms of phone interviews for most organizations. We have even seen cases where its replacing the first in person interview.
These trends in HR are inevitable and companies that jump on board first will be the ones who benefit the most. Video interviewing is the future of hiring. Video is now a way in which companies can express their culture, their brand and themselves while saving time and money. The future of HR is here now… join us.
Automating the hiring process is the best way to increase your HR ROI and VidCruiter is the ONLY company that provides the complete hiring solution.
