The emergence of COVID-19 really challenged the preconceptions of interviewing. Hiring managers who would otherwise insist that they couldn’t possibly hire someone without meeting them face-to-face were forced to shift to virtual interviewing. Video interviews are now commonplace and have become an essential part of the hiring process for most companies.
There are two types of video interviews: live and pre-recorded. Live video interviews are simply a video call between the recruiter or hiring manager and the candidate. This type of video interview is the most popular and is the go-to substitution for the face-to-face interview. A pre-recorded interview is less common and is often used in the candidate screening process. In this type of interview, the candidate is the only person on the video call and there is an automated system that prompts the candidate with questions. The system notifies a recruiter or hiring manager once the interview is complete so that the candidate’s responses can be reviewed.
Live video interviews are an excellent replacement for in-person interviews and offer a number of benefits to both the hiring team and the candidate:
As with any other video call, video interviews are not immune to technical difficulties. Trying to push through a video interview with persistent technical issues will be a frustrating experience for both you and the candidate. If you or the candidate is having technical issues, reschedule or change the interview to an audio-only call instead. Despite the potential technical snags, video interviews can be a great, or even necessary, addition to your hiring process whether you’re using them as a screening tool or as a way to interview remote candidates.
Our ATS (recruitment module) allows users to schedule individual or panel interviews. Communicate to candidates the date, time, and video link (Zoom, Teams, WebEx, GoToMeeting, etc.) via email or SMS. During interviews, HR users and managers can notate responses to questions and assess skills in real-time.
