There are many recruiters and candidates who still resist this type of system, but have not yet realized that this can change the recruiting game for your company, especially at a time when the fight for the best candidates has never been so "wild". If the world has become more smaller in terms of geographic mobility, then Video interviewing is a game-changer for the global hiring process, offering convenience, increased efficiency, improved candidate experience, and more objective evaluations of candidates and give you control over your conversations and save your time, thereby minimizing communication lags.

This one-way interview process used by hundreds of candidates and recruiters around the world it just has the purpose to help on screening process, since, candidates and recruiters do not need to meet at the first stage of the process.

What is an example of asynchronous video?

An asynchronous video is not live-streamed and does not happen in real time. It´s recorded video interview where recruiters define key recruiting questions and candidates can answer in their own time and place.

The asynchronous video interview system by Live Jobs - Video Interview Software lets you invite all your candidates do make a video interview and you can review, comment and rate all candidates in a few minutes.

What do employers look when they are using one video interview system?

With video interviewing, you can conduct interviews with candidates from anywhere in the world, without the need for travel. This not only saves time and money, but it also makes it possible to reach a wider pool of candidates, regardless of location. 

After almost 5 years in market and with an average of 200 interviews registered on our platform per month these are the main reasons why recruiters decide to use one video interview system: 

Increased Efficiency

Video interviewing is also much more efficient than traditional face-to-face interviews. With video interviews, you can conduct multiple interviews in a shorter amount of time, allowing you to quickly and effectively narrow down your pool of candidates.

Improved candidate experience

It’s one of those things that companies talk about a lot but often struggle to get right. From the application process to the interview stage, there are plenty of opportunities to make a good impression. For many candidates, the interview process can be stressful and intimidating.

With video interviewing, candidates can complete the interview from the comfort of their own home, reducing stress and making the process more enjoyable. Video Interview Systems can be too a powerful tool in enhancing the candidate experience. For example, by using video in your job postings, interviews, office tours, feedback, and onboarding, you can show candidates that you’re a company that’s willing to go the extra mile to attract and retain the best talent. So why not give it a try? There are multiple reasons for using a video as part of your recruitment strategy. 

A video will not only improve your company status, but it will also appeal to a younger demographic. Research shows that 95% of 18–29-year-olds use YouTube, which shrinks to 73% for the over-50s. 48% of 18-29-year-olds use the video platform TikTok, but that falls to just 22% for those over 30.

It’s believed that job postings with videos receive a 34% higher application rate than those without, and these stats underline the age demographic you’re likely to appeal to and this feature is free in Live Jobs - Video Interview Software.

More Objective Evaluations

Finally, video interviewing can help to provide more objective evaluations of candidates. Recruiters and managers can review the answers given on video as many times as they want.

With video interviews, it's easier to judge a candidate's non-verbal cues, such as body language and tone of voice, which can be critical in the hiring process. While video interviewing offers many advantages, it's important to approach it with a well-thought-out strategy.

Candidates are increasingly preparing themselves for this way of recruiting, as it is increasingly common for them to replay to a job offer that is on the other side of the world. 

They are invest in quality equipment during this process. A good microphone and webcam can make a big difference in the clarity and quality of the video interview and some platforms as Live Jobs - Video Interview Software provide an easy to use APP making the process even easier by replacing a computer with your phone through an APP and that is attractive for candidates.

They are more prepared for this:

Athough for many it may be new to other candidates, these processes have become routine. So, just like with any interview, it's important to be prepared for a video interview. 

Make sure you have a well-defined list of questions and a quiet, well-lit space in which to conduct the interview and go about picking an outfit the way you would if you were meeting an employer in person. 

Practice makes perfect, and this is especially true when it comes to video interviewing. Before conducting your first video interview, make sure you've familiarized yourself with the technology and have a good understanding of how to use it.

And this is WHY video interviews are on the rise in a lot of market´s and they are 1st option of top recruiter´s and candidates who don't like wasting time on first interviews. And this approach is considerably less expensive compared to in-person interviews, and it allows better and easier scheduling on both parts.
