What is MyInterview?

Are you looking for new video interview software?  Here’s our review of myInterview after demo’ing the product directly with their CMO Eliav Rodman (you can see our full conversation below).

Our hope is that this review allows you to better understand myInterview’s solution, and how it may fit into your recruiting tech stack.  We’ll give you the advice you need to make the right decision in the short term, and keep you up to date on the various trends in HR and talent acquisition tools as they evolve.

myInterview offers an easy to set up video interview solution that allows recruiting teams to quickly ramp up virtual interviews.

Their software can be dropped into your existing career site through an easy to implement widget, or incorporated into your existing workflow and ATS, which means you can be using video interviews in under an hour.

Killer Feature: myInterview uses machine learning to assess candidate answers on the basis of their professionalism, reasoning, etc. This assessment allows companies to quickly narrow down large job applicant pools to relevant automated shortlists.  This is one of the main reasons we’ve featured this company on our list of the best video interview platforms.

MyInterview Financials?

At SelectSoftware, we believe that customers vote with their wallets.  And so, if a company has strong financial results, that is a great signal that they also have a strong product.

  • myInterview’s customer retention rate is >90%, which we would rate as excellent.
  • myInterview’s growth and profitability satisfy the rule of 40 which means their growth rate plus profitability equal a sum greater than 40.

What the Recruiting Pros Say

While data such as financials can shed light into how a company is doing, we also like to understand what specific HR leaders are saying about a given solution.   Here are a few myInterview reviews from recruiting leaders who’ve used the product:

“myInterview enables our project team to quickly review and determine whether the candidates have the right mix of energy, positivity, and strong customer service skills.  It was imperative that we had a central source to quickly review candidates and move through to the next stage of the process.  To that end the solution enabled us to appoint 40 staff members in 15 days…” - Ben Cartland, Talent Acquisition Manager at Catch.com.au

“Only a third of the people that we interviewed yesterday were people that we would’ve actually invited for an interview if we’d used myInterview first.  The days of resumes are so over…you get nothing from someone’s resume.  myInterview is so powerful!” - Dr. Mahya Mirzaei, Education Director at LearnED

MyInterview Implementation and Support

Support

myInterview offers 24/7 support for both customers and candidates.

Implementation

myInterview’s widget can be dropped on a career site to start doing interviews today.  However, many companies will do a fuller integration to ensure long term success, especially if they are hiring more than 1-2 people per month.

Typical implementation process:

1.     Setup ATS integration either directly or via Zapier (Day 1. depending if already supported).

2.     Upload any pre-screen videos for candidates to watch that explain the process, or emphasize your employer brand (day 1).

3.     Define questions for each role (day 1).

4.     Train recruiters on how to get candidates setup for video interviews and how to vet video interviews.

MyInterview Demo

Here is a short demo of their product highlighting key features:

MyInterview Founding Story

We always think it’s important to understand why a company was started.  Many times this founding DNA is core to the product offering.  For example, companies that were started out of staffing firms many times aren’t great for corporate recruiting teams, companies that were started after sub-par candidate experiences usually put the job seeker first, etc.

Australians Benjy Gillmand and Guy Abelsohn came up with the concept for myInterview when they were in High School. “We were essentially fed up with applying for casual jobs with a resume that said nothing about who we were”. There has been no real change in a hundred years, and with all of our crazy technological advancements, we still submit a piece of paper with some bullet points that are meant to sum us up as human beings. The system still upsets me, because there is so much lost potential, and the place you spend the majority of your conscious day should be linked to so much more. However the main reason that there has been no advancement is that a resume is so darn convenient to submit and review. This is why we created myInterview”.
