More recruiters are making the switch to asynchronous video interviews, otherwise known as pre-recorded video interviewing, as their main screening method during the recruitment process. This is largely due to the advanced features which are constantly being added to the technology. Below, you’ll find some of the additional benefits of using this software.

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 when convenient. This allows for less scheduling and saves time when compared to traditional phone interviews.

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 can stop sitting through an interview for the sake of a positive candidate experience and can focus their time on more qualified candidates.

Eliminate Candidate No-Shows

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

Replay and Fast Forward Video Responses

To minimize time spent reviewing video responses, recruiters are able to replay and fast forward videos. This allows you to re-watch an important part of the interview or skip through wrong or irrelevant answers. By utilizing this feature, you’ll be able to focus on the best candidates instead of wasting time with those you won’t hire.

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, meaning you won’t have to skip questions because you’ve met a limit. Recruiters can also save a set of questions as a template, making it easier to set up your next interview. You’ll be able to get all of the information you need about a candidate without having to follow up or conduct multiple interviews, saving time and resources.

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, which creates a higher likelihood of hiring the right person.

Showcase Your Brand During the On-Demand Video Interview

We’ll be able to customize the online interviewing platform to fit your specific branding requirements. Our team will either brand the applicant experience to look identical to your corporate website or design a custom branding look for you. Our system also enables you to display more than one brand, so you’re able to switch which one to use on a per-job position basis. 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 customized depending on who you want to send them to and for what reason. For example, you can send an interview invitation to a candidate outlining instructions and details, but change that for another candidate applying to a different position. Emails can be branded to your domain, have HTML designs from your company included, and even have read receipt capabilities.

Email reminders allow recruiters to set up automatic communications which can inform candidates and colleagues about scheduled interviews, deadlines, and more. Like other forms of communication through the software, these emails can be customized to include whatever details necessary. This method keeps candidates engaged and can reduce your dropout rates.

Integrate with an Existing ATS

VidCruiter Applicant Tracking Integration Options

VidCruiter’s platforms are easily integrated into a number of other applicant tracking systems with our premium integrations. The system is able to pull data from your existing ATS, saving you and your applicants the trouble of entering all their information each time. 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.
