Finding your next employee takes time and effort from you and your management team. You sort resumes, speak with unqualified candidates, coordinate schedules, organize in-person interviews, make travel arrangements, and the list goes on and on. All this adds time to the hiring process which negatively impacts productivity, consumes resources, and opens the door to potentially missing out on an exceptional hire.
In light of this, organizations have begun using online video interviewing providers, such as JobStem.com, to combat the downsides of the traditional hiring cycle. Expensive equipment, and state of the art facilities, used to conduct interviews are a thing of the past. Interviewing can now be accomplished with an internet browser and a webcam. What was once viewed as trendy and expensive, is now quickly becoming a staple in the hiring cycle.
There are two unique online video interviewing techniques. The distinction between these methods focuses on how the video interview is conducted online. Using the on demand interviewing process, all your candidates are delivered the same set of user defined, prerecorded video questions. You control how the questions are presented, how much time the candidate has to respond to each question, and the candidate’s ability to retry (re-record) a response. On demand video interviews save time, money, and most of all lets you compare your candidates using a consistent delivery method.
In contrast, live video interviewing is a web conference style interview, where multiple members of your hiring team ask questions and engage the candidate in an open and spontaneous format.
The online video interview goes far beyond the actual recording of a live or on demand interview by offering all the benefits of a face-to-face interview, without the hassles of the conventional interviewing process. Online interviews can be used to evaluate a candidate’s verbal skills, witness their body language when asked a difficult question, and determine their attention to detail without having to meet in person.
Video interviews can be reviewed by you and your hiring team, unlimited times, increasing your ability to discover the next member of your organization.
