Video Interview for Employers
The core of assessing the value of candidates hasn't really evolved much over the past decade. The initial process has long been driven by cover letters, CVs, application forms and telephone interviews, ahead of advancing to more formal face-to-face interviews. From a hiring perspective, reviewing the potential of candidates based on these things alone, will never really paint the full picture.
At Progress Recruitment Solutions, we're always exploring the best possible opportunities available to our automotive clients.
Having worked with vast numbers of automotive clients, matching prospective individuals to appropriate roles - placing over 1,000 candidates in the last year alone - we began to understand that a greater opportunity for employers has become afforded with the ongoing development of technology.
"We've placed over 1,000 candidates in the last year alone"
This missed opportunity has driven our integration with informal video interviewing. Video interviews allows employers to really review the person applying, instead of what is contained within a CV, solely. A video interview allows prospective employers to take candidate insight to the next stage; offering employers a much more 'real' glimpse of the individual behind the application. Our video interviews allow employers to see candidates:
- Express their passion with greater ease
- Demonstrate their knowledge and confidence
- Portray their true personality
Marrying up the video interview, with the CV and cover letter, allows a much greater - and well rounded - review of candidates. As employers, there will always be instances where you look beyond the qualifications and experience outlined in a CV. Seeking a passionate, dedicated individual that can fit well within your existing team and infrastructure, can be invaluable.
If a picture is deemed to be worth a thousand words, imagine how much can be assessed from a video, at an early stage of the recruitment process; saving time and improving recruitment efficiency.
