Engage, interview and hire top talent, faster, with VidCruiter.
VidCruiter’s pre-recorded video interviewing software improves the efficiency of any recruitment process by enabling hiring teams to screen applicants in a fraction of the time it takes to schedule and conduct either phone or in-person interviews.
Pre-recorded video interviewing was designed to help companies with the screening stage of the recruiting process. With pre-recorded interviews, there is no need to schedule phone interviews or spend time asking the same questions repeatedly. The one-way interview functionality is a huge time-saver. Your team no longer has to worry about where the applicant is based, or take the time to both arrange, and attend an initial face to face interview.
The applicant is asked to record videos of themselves answering pre-determined interview questions. These are questions you would normally ask in your first interview relating to work experience, personality, or the candidate’s understanding of your organisation.
They may be specific to the position you are recruiting for, for example:
“In our company, most of the team is out of the office the majority of the time. How will you find working in a work environment where you will be working alone for the majority of the day?”
The candidates will typically record one video response per interview question while at home on a mobile device, laptop or tablet. It can also be completed at the applicant’s preferred time.
Not only can questions be customised for each placement, but the amount of pressure (time to prepare and time to respond) can also be modified meaning the platform can meet the needs of any position.
These videos are then stored on a secure platform for clients to sign in and watch at their convenience. Decision-makers in the hiring process are given access, and call each watch, replay, share, fast-forward these video responses at their convenience.
The team reviewing a candidate can rate each answer, these are automatically consolidated into an overall candidate score. A candidate who is not deemed a good fit can be screened out immediately, something that is impossible to do in a face to face interview.
The painful, and yet all too frequently played out scenario of an expensive manager sitting in an interview with a totally unsuitable candidate for 30-45 minutes they had screened out within the first 5 minutes is eliminated!
VidCruiter will assist clients in ensuring consistency in hiring and ensuring a cultural fit with their organisation’s culture, will assist screen candidates quickly and cost-effectively manage placements in remote locations where the decision-makers in the recruitment process are not.
