At VidCruiter, we understand that every company has a unique set of hiring needs. This is why we designed our platform to give recruiters and hiring managers multiple options when it comes interviewing candidates. Our clients have access to a variety of interview formats and can even mix and match them for a completely customizable recruitment process. Leveraging the advantages of each interview type has allowed our clients to experience a number of benefits including, a more engaging and streamlined recruitment process, better quality assessment, and improved convenience. Let’s take a closer look at the advantages of each type of interview:
1. Pre-Recorded Video Interviews:
With this option, you are giving candidates the ability to record video responses to your questions on their own time. These interviews are conducted asynchronously meaning, that you can also review the candidates’ responses at your convenience. Pre-recorded video interviews remove hassles that plague traditional interview methods such as coordinating schedules and playing phone tag. Video Interviewing is also a great way to quickly screen a large number of applicants. Unlike an in-person interview, if you determine an applicant is unqualified after watching a few questions then you don’t need to commit additional time to reviewing the remaining questions.
2. Audio Interviews:
Audio Interviews function similarly to pre-recorded video interviews except for the fact that candidates record their responses over the phone. Again there is no need to coordinate schedules or play phone tag. Audio interviews also allow you to test for comprehension and screen candidates for voice quality and pronunciation, making it easier to identify top performing candidates.
3. Live Video Interviews:
Live video interviews give you all the benefits of in-person interviews without the additional time and money spent on travel. The freedom to join a live video interview from a computer, tablet, or smartphone also makes it easier for multiple interviewers to get involved. Unlike free options, such as Skype, the platform is customized to match your branding and interviews can be recorded allowing you to share or rewatch them. An automated scheduler can also be used, allowing you to set your availability and have candidates select an available timeslot.
4. In-Person Interviews:
Typically, interviewers need to record information about a candidate and their responses as they conduct an in-person interview. Using paper-based interview guides is a hassle and requires additional time to be spent on data entry and storage. With VidCruiter, interviewers have access to digital versions of your organization’s interview guides from a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Interviewers can score a candidate in real-time and the results are automatically calculated and organized within the system. The rating system is completely customizable and paper forms are no longer required.
5. Hybrid Live Interviews:
It is not always convenient or possible for multiple interviewers to interview a candidate at once, especially if they are in various locations. Traditionally, organizations would make a candidate go through multiple rounds of interviews to get feedback from additional individuals or only rely on one individual’s assessment. These options either dragged out the recruitment process or potentially limited assessment quality. With VidCruiter, you can combine in-person and live video interviews, making it more convenient for multiple interviewers to join an interview. Both in-person and remote interviewers can make notes and rate the interview in the exact same way with the system capturing all the results.
