Video Interviewing from a Candidate's Perspective Infographic
Graduates and other job hopefuls are finding themselves having to jump through increasingly complex hoops to land a job in the market place. With competition higher than ever, recruiters are trying to find more efficient ways of interviewing to find the best talent with video interviewing set to be the next big thing. The Video Interviewing from a Candidate's Perspective Infographic gives a useful perspective into the process from a candidate's point of view.
Video interviewing, especially that which is a one way recording, can benefit the candidate by:
- Having the ability to complete the interview at their convenience; time doesn’t need to be taken out from work and can be even completed on evenings or at weekends and being mobile in whatever location suits them
- Providing a new experience, developing their skills for future applications
- Having that extra couple of seconds to think about what’s being asked of them, prior to recording their answer
- Candidates who are now joining the workforce are those from the millennial and Gen Z generation. These individuals are very tech savvy, looking for vacancies on mobile phones and tablets. Despite this, when conducting video interviews, the majority of candidates prefer to use desktop laptops or computers in the comfort of their own home. It’s worth noting this as it’s vital that company websites and careers sites are mobile optimised.
Companies implementing video interviewing as part of their recruitment efforts have the ability to view and reflect on not only the candidate’s answers, but also on their body language, behaviour, and appearance; building a more in-depth and well-rounded picture of who the candidate is and what they can offer. As a result, recruiters can evaluate candidates more efficiently in comparison to telephone interviews which don’t reveal the whole picture, hiring the right individual for the vacancy.
