Having an accurate picture of your candidates can be the difference between finding the right person for the job and making a poor hiring decision. To secure the best talent, it is also important that you can quickly determine which candidates are the most qualified. Without the proper tools, it can be extremely difficult to efficiently analyze your candidates, especially if you are sorting through a large pool of applicants. Traditionally, making quicker decisions came at the expense of assessment quality or conducting an in-depth analysis of each candidate significantly dragged out the entire recruitment process. With VidCruiter’s applicant hiring system, quality analysis and faster hiring times are both possible. Here are a few examples of ways our system allows you to achieve both:
- Customized Ratings
Using a structured rating system is one of the best ways to objectively compare candidates. With VidCruiter, your interviewers can access digital versions of your interview guides and use them to rate every candidate based on the same criteria. There is no need to collect the data or manually calculate the results as the system automatically captures all of the information. The rating system can be used throughout the entire recruitment process and shows an applicant’s aggregate score and their score for each stage. You can sort candidates based on their scores, allowing you to quickly identify the top candidates. The custom rating scales can be used for multiple types of interviews including pre-recorded video, live video, and in-person. The flexibility of interview options makes it more convenient to receive input from multiple raters without needing to schedule additional rounds of interviews. VidCruiter’s customized rating system allows you to easily capture and store the information that you need to make better hiring decisions without the hassle of filling out paper forms and manually collecting and inputting the data.
- Verify Applicant Skills
The ability to quickly verify if an applicant possesses the required skills for a position can be the difference between efficiently filling the role and wasting countless amounts of time and money on unqualified applicants. With VidCruiter’s automated recruiting system, you can use filtering questions to remove applicants that do not meet minimum job qualifications. Automated emails will even notify the ineligible applicants, allowing you to focus your attention on the qualified applicants. Resumes are often filled with exaggerated claims and don’t always give the most accurate portrayal of an applicant’s skill set. With VidCruiter’s applicant testing, you can easy test applicants anywhere in the recruitment process and ensure that only the qualified applicants proceed. Voice clarity, script reading, typing speed, and Excel proficiency are just a few examples of the available testing options.
- Automated Reference Checks
Reference checks are a great way to verify candidate information, but the traditional method of doing them over the phone was tedious and time-consuming. The hassle of conducting reference checks made most companies either move them to one of the final steps of the recruitment process or omit them entirely. VidCruiter’s automated reference checking system saves time by removing inconveniences such as scheduling and playing phone tag. With VidCruiter, you can easily perform reference checks on every applicant or get even more insight by checking more references for each applicant.
The two main ways to improve the efficiency of your hiring process are identifying better quality candidates and filling your positions more quickly. Traditionally, these two were often achieved at the expense of the other. At VidCruiter, we have designed a variety of products and features that allow you to achieve both. We would be happy to show you these and the countless other ways that VidCruiter will improve your hiring efficiency.
