Video interviewing has become increasingly popular in today’s recruiting world where just about every device has a built-in video camera. If your company is not currently taking advantage of this technology, you need to jump on board.
VidCruiter’s video interviewing system is leading the way when it comes to recruiting. Interviews offer a way to get a total assessment of a candidate that is not always apparent on paper. However, conducting face-to-face interviews involves a lot of time and effort, both for scheduling the interview as well as the actual meeting times.
Using our system, candidates are able to record their answers to your questions on their own time using any device with an internet connection. This makes it easy to interview as many people as you want and ask as many questions as you need to. You can watch and review these interviews at your convenience on your own time, as many times as you need to. And if there is a particularly important question where the answer given would determine whether or not the person would move on in the process, you can review that question first. Then if the answer is not to your satisfaction, you can move on to the next candidate without wasting any more time.
VidCruiter has a fully customized rating system that will automatically rank candidates according to certain criteria determined by you. Our system allows you to share interviews with other team members so they can rate and rank the candidates as well, leading to better hiring decisions overall.
Incorporating video interviewing into your hiring process will not only save your company significant amounts of time and money on recruiting and travel costs, but they come with another perk as well. All candidate profiles are kept on file so there will be a large pool of candidates already available when the next hiring opportunity comes along, which will mean even more time savings in the future.
What about the actual applicants in this whole process? Well it turns out that candidates prefer video interviewing over other types of interviews. First, they don’t have to travel to and from your office which saves them time and money, especially if they are from out of town. Since candidates can do the video interview anywhere on any device, they feel more comfortable in their own familiar surroundings and tend to perform better answering the questions. One thing they also love is the fact they can practice before starting the actual interview process. You can also allow the applicant to record and even re-record until they are happy with their answer, but that is up to you. Our system is completely customizable so you can be sure that anything you need, VidCruiter can do it.
With video interviews comes the decision of where to host all that data since different regions are bound by different laws. PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act), for example, is a Canadian law stating the responsibility organizations have with regards to any personal information they collect. If your company requires having your data to be hosted within Canada, it could be difficult to find a Canadian video interviewing system that will meet all your interviewing needs.
As usual, VidCruiter has got you covered! VidCruiter offers a Canada-based video interviewing system where all your data is completely owned by you and it is all hosted in Canada on your behalf.
