Wouldn’t it be nice if every application came with a resume, social profile and video answers to application questions? You spend 10 seconds skimming through the resume and 30 seconds watching their video answers. The result? A 3-dimensional understanding of the candidate. Not only do you know their qualifications, work history, and technical skills, but you also know their soft skills, personality and emotional intelligence.
Sounds like a dream? Well, it isn’t! This is exactly MyRecruitment+ offers you with our Video Interview module.
Save thousands of $$$ spent on organising interviews, rescheduling interviews and finally sitting through interviews.
To be honest, from the recruiter point of view, there isn’t much difference between face-to-face and online live-interviews because both interviews must be organised and sat through in real time. Pre-recorded video interviews are a completely different paradigm! It shouldn’t take a recruiter more than 20 seconds to realise if the candidate is a potential fit. By better understanding your candidates in the application phase you better invest your time and money into candidates that are best suited to the position, and eliminate the need to phone-screen!
Whilst a resume can explain the technical skills and work experience of the candidate, there’s absolutely no equivalent to viewing the person express themselves in order to understand their soft skills they possess, and whether or not they’d be a suitable cultural fit.
Things like personality, communication skills, and emotional intelligence are a must when it comes to either cultural fit and assessing how they would be received by your client base.
You can plug your Video Interviews questions wherever you like in your recruitment workflow, however MyRecruitment+ recommends placing them right at the very beginning of the recruitment process – so you can add one or more video questions to your application form. This way, you can shed some light on the soft skills from the start of the assessment process.
