The basics – what a video recruitment solution needs to do

Alright, now time to get to know the basics of Video Recruitment. Obviously, a good video interview software needs to efficiently do what it is named after: taking videos of candidates answering questions. A few criteria need to be taken in account:

  • Advanced Technology: You are aiming at a state of the art product that records videos in high definition, without any latency, that is available at all time and respects the user’s privacy.
  • Format Diversity: not all job opportunities require the same screening process. Perhaps you quickly need to go through a high volume of candidates, or give a final assessment to decide between two talented contenders? Then a 30 second video pitch might be the right option. Do you want to assess multiple questions and give candidates a custom amount of time to answer them? Then automated interviews are the way to go. Lastly, do you feel like a live video meeting is actually the best option? Well, the best video interview software should give you the choice between format and provide you with strategic guidance to make the best decision.
  • Custom Branding: When it comes to video interviews, the way your brand presents itself will grandly influence the way candidates will perform. By recording questions yourself and uploading a teaser, trailer or company video, your applicant will get a glimpse at your company culture and assess the exercise with less stress. Tailor the user interface to your image by selecting a background and your logo and you will have all the keys to make the experience personal.
  • Peer reviewing: a new hire is never a ” one person only ” decision, it is all the contrary, in fact. A good video interview platform should give you the possibility to safely share candidate’s data to your colleagues and centralize their feedback.
