The interview process is extremely important as you look for top candidates for your company. Technology continues to change the techniques we use to hire. These days, companies should consider video interviews which is becoming more and more prevalent in the business world.

YouTube, Facebook and Skype are just a few examples of ways to hold a video interview with a potential candidate. Why conduct an interview by phone when you could see the person by video? This would allow you to put a face with the voice and even see their habits and mannerisms.

There are many reasons to jump on board with the video interview revolution that has become so dominant recently. The benefits abound for all parties involved such as the candidates, hiring managers and recruiters.

The benefits of video interviewing includes:

1.  More quality interviews
Video enables the candidate and hiring manager to have a more quality interview with better discussion. When you are able to have a “face to face” meeting, then you are able to see expression and body language. In other words, you are able to see a more accurate picture of each other which means better quality and time well spent.

2.  Easy interview process
These days, people use tablets and smart phones more quickly than computers. Video interviews can be done on any device and from any location. Talk about the greatest of ease while trying to schedule an interview! Video is flexible, simple and easy to do for even the least techy person because most everyone has a smart phone.

3.  Less time consuming
Video conferencing for interviews takes less time. When you jump on a call and use video then you’ll be “killing two birds with one stone.” You are able to see the person and hear their voice but from a distance. Brilliant! You will save time and be able to discern more because you can both audibly and visually screen them all at the same time.

4.  Video offers a competitive edge
While video interviewing has become more popular, it is still more cutting edge for companies to offer. Why not be the most innovative, flexible and fresh company hiring new candidates?
Suggest a video interview which is both convenient, more unique and helpful and you’ll see an influx of interest from job seekers in your position and company.
Video interviewing is here to stay and it’s on the rise. Consider implementing this type of recruitment into your hiring package to test the excellent results for yourself.

We would love to hear how you are using video interviewing for your business.
