Last Advice On Video Interviewing

Video interviewing can be a very powerful part of your HRTech stack.  This is especially true for high volume roles where you’re spending a tremendous amount of time doing phone screens.  While on demand interviewing can drive ROI from decreased time spent on phone screens, it can also increase your hiring outcomes by allowing you to better understand who a candidate is before making a decision on whether or not to hire them.

However, it’s worth noting that you should have a well defined strategy around how you will introduce the concept of video interviews to your candidates, and set expectations for their experience as well as how this content will be used.  Companies who simply send candidates a link to take a video interview are not going to be successful.
