Three People Looking at the Different On-Demand Video Interview Features

As recruiters continue to make the switch to asynchronous video interviews as their primary screening method, otherwise known as pre-recorded video interviewing, technology is advancing with more features being added to create a continuously improving user experience. Below are some of those many features designed to create a great experience.

Interview an Unlimited Amount of Candidates at Once

With on-demand video interviews, there’s no need for recruiters to perform the interview. Candidates can respond to interview questions at a time that works for them, and recruiters are able to review these responses at their convenience. Video interviewing is helping recruiters save significantly more time than interviews conducted over the phone, allowing them to qualify their applicants with speed and ease.

A More Efficient, On Demand Interview

Because the interview is not live, recruiters can skip forward or stop the interview if they deem the candidate unqualified at any point. Recruiters no longer have to waste this time sitting through an interview for the sake of a positive candidate experience and can focus it on more qualified candidates.

Eliminate Candidate No-Shows

Having candidates who don’t show up for an interview might be one of the most frustrating things that can happen to a recruiter. With on-demand video interviewing, applicants conduct the interview on their own time, allowing hiring teams to review these responses at their own convenience. Since the interview doesn’t have to be completed at a specific time, recruiters no longer need to stress over candidates who don’t show up.

Replay and Fast Forward Video Responses

To minimize time spent reviewing video responses, recruiters are able to replay and fast forward these videos. Rather than watching the entire video at regular speed, you can speed up the process and spend time focusing on the quality of your candidates.

Ask as Many Questions as You Need with Asynchronous Video Interviews

There’s no limit on the number of questions that can be asked during a video interview.  Recruiters can also save a set of questions as a template, making it easier to set up your next asynchronous video interview. With this, you can get all of the information you need about a candidate without having to follow up or conduct multiple interviews, saving you time and resources to focus on other tasks.

Allow Applicants to Re-Record Under Pressure

Applicant Recording His On-Demand Video Interview Answer

Recruiters can choose how many times an applicant is able to re-record their video response if they are unsatisfied with their initial attempts. You’ll be able to see if the applicant is qualified and capable of working well under high-pressure situations as a result. By having complete control over the system, recruiters are able to thoroughly think about each candidate, allowing them to make good decisions about high-quality candidates.

Showcase Your Brand During the On-Demand Video Interview

Companies are able to customize their VidCruiter platform to fit its specific branding requirements. Our dedicated team will brand the applicant experience to look identical to your corporate website, or have our design team create a custom branding look for you. Our system also enables you to display more than one brand, meaning those working as part of a group of companies will be able to illustrate this and show candidates the right group at the right time. Not only does this provide a professional image, but leads to an overall unique client experience as well.

Customize your Emails

Customization Options for the Email Function on VidCruiter

Email invitations can be structured to include custom details and information that are personalized to each applicant and user. Emails can be branded to your domain, and have HTML designs from your company included, with other features such as read receipts so you know if an applicant has received your communications. By using this feature, your company will maintain a positive hiring reputation while consistently providing a great candidate experience, which will attract applicants to you.

Send Email Reminders

The email reminders feature allows recruiters to set up automatic communications for both candidates and colleagues that serve as reminders for scheduled interviews, deadlines, and more. Like other forms of communication through the software, these emails can be customized to include whatever details necessary, providing candidates with a personalized experience while keeping them engaged as a way to reduce candidate drop out rates throughout the process.

This system works both ways, with our platform transferring completed video interviews and applicant data back into your ATS, making evaluations easier for your team, and creating a seamless application process for your candidates.
