The quick benefits of using video interviews
1. Puts a face to the resume
If a picture is worth a thousand words then a video is worth a million. When you're sifting through resumes that look all alike, video interviews help you get a glimpse of what these candidates are like in real life and enable you to screen them before you invest time for in-person interviews.
2. Gives you superpowers to screen faster
Video interviews are faster and definitely less time consuming that in person interviews. They also cut down huge chunks of time and resources spent in coordinating traditional formats of interviews. You can meet any candidate you want to, from anywhere in the world without worrying about travel costs or geographical boundaries.
3. Let’s you hire as a team but with less hassles
Since video interviews can be saved and played for hiring stakeholders, it makes collaboration easy. The hiring panel can watch it at their convenience and leave comments and notes for each other to make a good and collective decision.
4. Attracts more candidates (truly interested ones) to interview with you
Not just any candidates but candidates who are truly passionate about working with your company. A video interview requires more commitment from a candidate when compared to telephonic interviews. So, virtual interviews can also help you get right to candidates that are serious about pursuing a role with you.
