With each passing day, a growing number of companies are getting involved with video interviewing. This may be new to a lot of people, but once they are on the right track they realize the benefits it can bring to their company.
Did you know there are two distinct types of video interviews? These include:
Let’s first take a look at asynchronous video interviews (also known as pre-recorded video interviews).
Asynchronous video interviews are extremely convenient for both applicants and the company they are applying to. There is no need to coordinate and schedule a specific time for the interview and ultimately time zones become irrelevant. Candidates can complete the interview at a time that works best for them and the recruitment team can review the interview at their convenience as well. Asynchronous interviews can be shared with every recruiter, hiring manager or other relevant individual allowing input from all parties without the candidate having to complete multiple interviews.
In an overall sense, asynchronous video interviews are perfect for companies that want to save both time and money, while still giving applicants a simple way of showing why they are the best person for the job.
What about live interviews? For some companies, the live interview remains an important part of the recruitment process.
Here are some of the many benefits of a live interview:
- Regardless of where a candidate is located, live interviewing makes it easy to connect with applicants in a “face to face” environment, driven by technology.
- Ensures a fair, consistent review for every applicant.
- With VidLiveInterviewing, multiple team members can participate in the interview at the same time. Best yet, they don’t have to be located in the same room to do so.
- Record each and every live video interview for future use. With a face to face or phone interview, this is not always possible. Instead, you are going on memory and “feel” when reviewing applicants and making a hiring decision. With a recorded live interview, you can review the questions and answers as often as you would like.
Once you get involved with video interviewing technology, such as the VidCruiter system, it won’t be long before you are considering the benefits of both asynchronous and live interviews.
