Zoom is a popular, easy to use and free conferencing platform that's accessible on browsers, desktops and mobile devices.
Zoom has exploded in popularity during COVID-19 to become the best known video conferencing software on the market. As such, most interviewees have more than likely used it before and will be comfortable using it again because of how user friendly it is.
Zoom is free to use for up to 40 minutes per meeting, making it good for most interviews but can lead to awkward endings if it runs over. It is also only usable for real-time interviewing, lacking most of the necessary features to be functionally all-encompassing for your human resources department.
Zoom integrates with browsers, content sharing services, and marketing and process automation tools. Examples include Marketo, Zapier, Dropbox, and Skype.
Zoom doesn't have asynchronous interviewing in its free platform.
Zoom is free for meetings up to 40 minutes with up to 100 participants with unlimited one-on-one meetings. Premium plans start at $150 per license year up to $300 per license per year.
