In today’s recruiting world, video interviewing has greatly increased in popularity. Almost every device we own has a built-in camera, and having this technology in the palm of our hands offers many benefits. Companies need to recognize the business potential here and use it to their advantage.
It is a given that interviews can give you a better overall picture of a candidate that cannot be perceived by reading a resume alone. But conducting face-to-face interviews can be very time-consuming considering scheduling, travel, and duration of the actual meeting. At VidCruiter, we have developed a video interviewing system that will change your entire recruiting process, and save tons of valuable time.
Our software allows candidates to record themselves answering your questions anytime and anywhere, as long as they have a device with a camera and an internet connection. Likewise, you can watch and review these interviews at a time that is convenient for you. If an applicant gives a less than qualified answer to an important question, you can skip the rest of the interview and move on to the next person without wasting any more time. VidCruiter makes it easy for you to interview as many candidates as you want to and ask as many questions as needed, with you doing less work than before!
We also offer an automatic candidate rating system that can be fully customized according to your own criteria. And if you want input from other team members, you can share the interviews and allow them to evaluate the candidates as well. The more insight you have regarding the candidates, the better hiring decision you can make.
All information collected about a candidate automatically gets added to their profile. These profiles are kept on file which means the next time you need to fill a position, you already have a large pool of candidates at your fingertips that have already been interviewed and ranked!
Not only will you love the video interviews, but the applicants will too! Candidates have actually reported they prefer video interviewing over traditional interviews for a few reasons. Doing an interview without having to travel anywhere saves them time and money, especially those who are not local. And the fact they can do the interview on any device in the comfort of their own home (or anywhere they choose) allows them to be more at ease during the interview and increase their overall performance. They are also able to practice before starting the actual interview, which really helps their confidence level. Since VidCruiter is completely customizable, you can even allow the applicant the luxury of being able to re-record their answers until they are happy with the result. Whatever you need our system to do, it can do it!
Due to a large amount of information being collected through video interviewing, companies need to decide where they host all of that data. There are different privacy laws in place in different regions. The Patriot Act in the United States, for example, states that the government has the right to access information at any time. This applies to every U.S. governed company.
So if your company needs to host its data within the United States and you are looking for a US-based video interview system hosted in the US, then you have come to the right place. VidCruiter can host all of your data on your behalf in the US, while you keep full ownership of all the information.
