When you receive a large number of applications for a position, you might end up with qualified applicants that you were unable to hire at that time. The great thing about identifying these additional quality applicants is that they can build a strong candidate pool that will help you fill future openings more efficiently. Unfortunately, with traditional hiring methods, the value of these quality applicants is often lost as they blend together with the countless other unqualified resumes. If you want to build a quality candidate pool that doesn’t let quality applicants fall off your radar, then you need video interviewing. Here are a few of the main advantages that video interviewing can offer as you build your candidate pool:
- Both pre-recorded and recorded live video interviews allow you to relive an interview as many times as you want. You no longer have to worry about forgotten details or misinterpreting facts about an applicant. You will get the same experience with a candidate even if it is weeks or months after their initial application.
- With video interviewing, you can streamline the process. You don’t need to subject a qualified applicant to the same screening process if they previously completed it. Considering that you can easily access and review all the previous information, you may be able to save time and skip certain steps of the process. The qualified candidates will appreciate not having to repeat the same steps over again.
- Video interviews give you a complete picture of an applicant. This allows you to quickly determine if they are a fit for other positions with different requirements without conducting an additional interview. It’s especially helpful if you are reaching out to a passive candidate and trying to sell them on the different opportunity within your organization.
- Video interviews are the best way to compare previous candidates with new applicants. The basis for comparison is even stronger if you used the same interview format and questions for the initial position as the later position.
Not only will video interviewing help you hire more efficiently today, but it will also help you build a more reliable pool of candidates for future positions.
