4 Reasons to Serve Your Company with Video Interviewing

Video interviewing does more for your company than reducing costs. While it is a great alternative to traditional interviewing, it doesn’t sacrifice any of the qualities of the face-to-face experience. Rather, it transitions it to eye-to-eye. The camera focuses on a candidate’s (and the interviewer’s) face and gives insight into whether there is interest in the position. With…

Some Things are Worth Repeating

A coworker of mine absolutely detests the phrase, "Recruiting is a lot like dating." She says it's cliche and trite; and she is right. The problem, though, with cliches and all things trite, is that they are true. 

Why is bears repeating that Recruiting is a lot like Dating:

  1. There is the obvious "courting" that occurs in both dating and recruiting, with recruiters often serving the role of "Match Maker" between candidates and companies
  2. Dating and…

To Video or Not to Video? Resume Videos are they going to help or hinder?

Back in 2003 while reviewing submitted hardcopy resumes, there were a number of new submissions that came in with mini-CD disks. Unsure as to what they really were, and concerned of potential viruses our IT department scanned them and once given the approval it was my turn to check them out. To my surprise they simply held the soft-copy of the documents that had been submitted – ok thanks but not needed.

Even as the economy crumbles and more companies lay off their workers, it is more critical than ever to sharpen the interview process in your company.
