Video interviews simplify your recruiting efforts.
So much time is spent... and wasted... conducting interviews with the wrong applicants. Some candidates look great on paper but in person might not fit your company's culture, or clearly don't have the skills represented on paper. One study found that half of all job candidates lie on their resume. Skip the terrible interviews by introducing video interviewing as part of your hiring process. Each candidate can answer the same set of questions through their smartphone or tablet on their time and then you and your team can review, rewatch, and rate at your convenience.
Screen applicants more efficiently.
Companies that do video interviews gain insight into their candidates in far less time. You will send your candidates a list of questions that they will answer on their own time. Then once they have completed the interview they will send it back to you for you to review at your convenience. This will allow you to hear from more candidates, compare them, and make a decision on who will continue forward in your hiring process.
