Video interviewing is gaining popularity in the recruiting world, and for good reason. Companies are starting to take advantage of the fact that almost everyone owns some sort of device with a camera, and turning to doing video interviews as part of their hiring process.
The scheduling, traveling, and meeting times associated with doing face-to-face interviews involves a lot of time and effort. But interviews are important because they offer more insight into a candidate than can be obtained by merely scanning a resume. In comes VidCruiter’s video interviewing system! Developed to save your company time and money, our software will basically revamp your entire recruiting process.
Doing a video interview is easy with our system. You can interview as many applicants as you like and ask as many questions you want to, while doing much less work. Candidates can record their answers in the comfort of their own home on any device and you can watch and review them at your convenience. If someone gives an answer that isn’t up to your standards, simply skip that person and move on to more qualified candidates.
VidCruiter’s candidate rating system can be fully customized and automatically rank each candidate according to your set of criteria. Interviews can also be shared between team members for further input and allows for better overall decisions on who should be hired. Candidate profiles are also kept on file to use for the next hiring opportunity!
Applicants themselves actually prefer video interviews as opposed to in-person ones, and for good reason. VidCruiter allows the candidate a few practice questions before starting the actual interview, which boosts their confidence level right from the start and makes them comfortable with the process. Doing the interview in a familiar setting with a familiar device puts them at ease and allows them to perform better overall. The fact that they don’t even have to travel anywhere saves them time and money as well. Our customizable system even lets you choose whether or not to allow the candidate re-record their answers – it is all up to you.
The decision of where to host all the data collected during the video interview process is an important one for every company due to different governing laws and regulations in certain areas. The privacy laws in Europe are fairly rigid when it comes to the protection of personal information. For example, the Data Protection Directive pertains to the transfer of personal data. Then there’s the European Data Protection Regulation whose purpose is to harmonize Europe’s current data protection laws.
If your company needs to have a Europe-based video interviewing system hosetd in Europe, VidCruiter can help you. You keep all ownership rights to your data and we are able to host that data on your behalf within Europe.
