Video interviewing isn’t just a luxury anymore, it’s a necessity. You’ve made the choice; you’ve finally convinced your hiring manager to go with a video interviewing service to interview international talent instead of just phone interviews. While those are losing popularity, video interviewing is gaining users because they are much better at deciphering the cultural fit and candidate attitude.

Video Interviewing: Find Your Stars

Recruiters and hiring managers file through hundreds of resumes per position. On average, candidates submit a total of 250 resumes for each job opening. That’s a lot of time and energy attempting to thin the talent pool for a position. Services like GreenJobInterview provide the technology you need to not only decrease the amount of candidates to screen, but the amount of time it takes to fill a position. Thinning the herd isn’t easy, but with the right tools, you can ease the pressure for you and your candidates. “A Hubble Space Telescope photograph of the universe evokes far more awe for creation than light streaming through a stained glass window in a cathedral.” – Michael Shermer Like the Hubble Space Telescope, video interviewing gives hiring managers the ability to see the candidate pool as a whole. Unlike the pretty stained glass portraits candidates can construct during a traditional interview, video screens give a […]

Your Corporate Clock is Ticking (Infographic)

… And you didn’t have much time to begin with. We’ve broken it down for you in this infographic: there are 24 hours in a day, doctors recommend we get 8 hours of sleep per night and the typical workday is 8 hours. That leaves 8 hours of free time. Unfortunately for most of the working population, we spend more than the 8 hours at work, get less than the recommended 8 hours of sleep and feel like 24 hours just isn’t enough. For corporate professionals, there are numerous menial tasks that needlessly take up your precious time while in the office. Like 11% of your professional counter parts, it can be as simple as a lack of motivation. You only have 8 hours, so what exactly is occupying the most time while you’re supposed to be on the clock? More importantly, what are you doing to save time at work? Keep […]

How Video Interviewing Can Help You Hire for Cultural Fit

Video interviewing is no longer an up and coming practice, it’s here. With 63% of HR managers having used video screening as a means to finding candidates, there is good reason to use this technology for enhancing your hiring process. Professionalism is hard to recognize through a phone interview, since only 7% of non-verbal communication is tone of voice. So when a candidate is thousands of miles from the company headquarters, video screening is ideal to measure their cultural fit. Nonverbal Communication A key indicator for cultural fit is a candidate’s nonverbal communication, and that’s something you can really only judge by seeing their face and hearing their voice simultaneously. Not every candidate will be from the same zip code as the company, and phone screenings don’t give the hiring manager the opportunity to see the face of their talent. This makes video interviewing  an ideal option. A candidate’s tone of voice, posture, […]

Practice Makes Perfect: Video Interviewing Gives Candidates an Edge

The benefits of video interviewing greatly outweigh the rather minimal costs. It saves companies roughly 67% on traveling costs over traditional face-to-face interviews. As wonderful as it is for companies to save that extensive amount of money, what about your candidates? It’s important for them to feel at ease during the interview process as well, so you don’t want a piece of technology that only saves you money but is difficult for the candidate. Your employer branding will suffer and so will your candidates. Jobseekers look for companies who are technologically savvy. In fact, some won’t even apply if they can’t at least send their resume from their mobile device. Video interviewing attracts tech talent, currently a very coveted career field for employers. While it does save recruiters a lot of time and money to do video screens over phone screens, it saves candidates time and nervous energy too.  In […]
