Video Interviewing Software is the best way to modernize your recruitment process. It allows recruiters and job candidates to complete interviews from any location, which gives both parties more flexibility and eliminates the cost of having to travel to an interview.
VidCruiter offers two different kinds of Video Interviewing Software, Pre-Recorded and Live.
Pre-Recorded Video Interviewing is only performed by the candidate. The system shows your questions then the candidate records a video of themselves answering those questions. It’s an ideal replacement for phone interviews during the screening stage of the process because once the candidate is finished with their video interview, all your recruiter has to do is log on and watch the videos.
Live Video Interviewing, on the other hand, has the applicant and the recruiter speak face-to-face via the internet. It allows you to meet applicants without having to be in the same room, but it also offers the candidate the same experience as having an in-person interview. Many recruiters are using Live Video Interviews instead of performing the first in-person interview now.
VidCruiter’s In-Person Digital Interviewing system will let your recruiters go paperless and help make sure all your interview data stays organized in one location. Instead of taking paper notes for each candidate, In-Person Digital Interviewing allows you to do it all electronically. You can even rate the candidate’s answers as the interview is ongoing and the system will automatically evaluate those ratings to give you an overall score instantly. If there are multiple interviewers, the system will take all the ratings in account to provide you with an overall average.
The In-Person Digital Interviewing system will also provide recruiters and hiring managers with your structured interviewing guides. This makes it easier to evaluate candidates fairly and ensures an interview doesn’t become unstructured because the guide was forgotten.
If you want to make sure you hire the right person for the job, then you need to be using Structured Digital Interviews. Research from Julia Levashina, an Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management specialist, shows the best way to evaluate candidates is by using a structured process. When you use this strategy, you’ll be able to compare the applicants side by side and accurately identify who is the most qualified applicant.
We’ve updated the structured process by digitizing it and making it easy to use no matter what type of interview your recruiter is performing. It also reduces the number of hiring errors made by recruiters and can even protect your company from legal complaints claiming bias or discrimination played a role in the selection process.
Finding a time to complete an interview with a candidate can be a huge hassle. If there’s not an obvious time for the interview could take place, recruiters may be making multiple phone calls and sending many emails trying to figure out a time that would work for everyone. Interview Scheduling Software makes the whole process much easier.
All recruiters have to do is set their availability in the calendar and then an email will automatically be sent to all candidates you need to do an interview with, asking them to select the time that works best for them. This eliminates the need to go back and forth to find out when everyone is available. It can also be utilized for every recruitment event, not just interviews.
Reference checking is one of those recruitment tasks that you need to complete despite it not adding much value to the overall consideration of a candidate. But by using Automated Referencing Software you’ll not only get more value from references, but you’ll also complete the task much quicker than before.
Automated Referencing puts the onus on the applicant to contact their references, not the recruiter. Once contacted, the applicant submits their reference’s contact information in the VidCruiter system, which will then automatically send an email form to the references asking them to fill it out. The responses will be more honest because they’re committing their words to a written record, instead of just speaking over the phone, and recruiters will be able to get the task done sooner instead of playing phone tag with references all day.
There are some jobs where recruiters need to know how an applicant acts when speaking with someone over the phone. Telephone interviews used to be the best way to test this, but that’s not the case anymore. Instead, recruiters hiring for positions which require an employee to be on the phone all day are starting to use Audio Interviewing Software.
VidCruiter’s Audio Interviewing Software works similarly to our Pre-Recorded Video Interviewing tool with one major difference. Instead of a candidate recording a video of themselves, they call a phone number which dictates the interview question to them, then records their answer. Recruiters can review the responses on their own time and learn what a candidate is like over the phone without needing to take the time to test that themselves.
With most jobs, there’s only so much you can learn about a candidate through interviews and reviewing their resume. During almost every recruitment process there comes a time where you need to test candidates to see if they can do the job effectively. Skills Testing Software is the quickest method to get this recruitment task completed.
Instead of being required to supervise a skill testing session, your recruiters can now get applicants to just complete the tests online. Our platform allows you to test for a variety of different skills, including Excel knowledge, typing speed, RFP simulations, and more. The system will even tell you if the candidate left the browser, which could suggest cheating took place.
An Applicant Tracking System is a great tool to keep your recruitment process organized and manageable. The software makes it easier to sift through resumes, keep track of all your applicants, and find the best person for the job. For small companies who don’t have an ATS yet, VidCruiter’s Applicant Tracking System has been a great tool. It’s simple and features a straight-forward workflow. It’s built for organizations who want to hire great candidates as quickly as possible in a cost efficient manner.
