How Recruiters Use a Live Interview Solution

The flexibility of the system is one reason why companies love it, some of which have even started using it outside the scope of the recruitment process, as well.

Use Case #1: Replace the First In-Person Interviews

The software makes it convenient for recruiters to interview a large number of candidates without actually having to meet them, saving time for both the interviewer and the interviewee.

Use Case #2: Reduce or Eliminate Travel Costs

There’s no need to fly a candidate in from the other side of the country and pay for travel expenses when using live video interviewing, which can save a significant amount of time and money for the company.

While the benefits and disadvantages can be debated for hours, web interviewing makes it easier for applicants to connect with recruiters working remotely. Just send an invite to everyone you need to be included in a meeting or interview, and they will all be able to connect via video conferencing.

Use Case #4: Recruiters Want a Face-To-Face Experience While Saving Time

To get an experience that is similar without the need to actually meet the candidate in a boardroom is a huge time saver. The only other option, though, is using a modern recruitment software designed to help people connect through the internet.

Use Case #5: Never Miss an Interview with Recording Option

This doesn’t have to be a concern when using webcam interviewing because each video interview has the option to be recorded. If a recruiter or hiring manager was unable to make it or brought in later to give a second opinion, they can watch the interview and know exactly what was said.
