5 reasons why you should only be video interviewing
Here at Tank Stream Labs we go by the motto scale up & grow with us, and the best way we believe to do this is to make things as simple and effective as possible so you can get the most out of your day.
By using technology to make your tasks easier you are saving yourself time and energy that could be better used on your ever-growing to-do list of tasks that never seem to shrink no matter how many coffees you drink and how fast you type. COVID-19 have ushered in a new era of how businesses use technology to interact with and interview potential employees.
Discovered People are here at Tank Stream Labs to show you how video interviewing is the new and best way for you to save time and effort in your interviewing process.
How many times have you had the exact same first interview? Explaining over and over what’s on your resume, some generic situation based questions and your career motivators. Depending on how long your job search is, it can get pretty repetitive. Rather than having this same first interview, again and again, video interviewing is an increasingly popular way to showcase yourself as a candidate and skip this first interview step.
TSL is excited to bring you Discovered Peoples top 5 tips on why video interviewing software is a huge benefit (and time saver!) for you.
Interview From Anywhere
Apart from the obvious reason of minimising your risk of exposure to COVID-19, the fact is that taking the time to meet for interviews as a candidate can be difficult. Having to take time off work, schedule a fake doctors appointment or take leave can be frustrating, especially if you don’t get the role.
Recruiting hasn’t stopped over this pandemic, it’s just changed to video interviews. This is really proved there’s no real need for face-to-face interviews anymore, which will ultimately save both the candidate and employer time.
Use Any Device
Using video interviewing software gives you the option of using whatever tech you have available. As not everyone has a laptop or only have a work computer available- which is a little awkward to use when interviewing for a different job. Luckily with video interviewing you can easily use your phone or tablet with no issues or hindrances.
One Interview, Multiple Opportunities
Your one interview can be used multiple times for many different roles. Rather than waiting to hear if your CV made it to the top of the applicant pile, with video interviewing you either get an interview or valuable feedback to put you ahead of the competition next time.
Get Real Feedback
While you might not get the job you were gunning for the first time around a video interview gives you the unique opportunity to receive feedback on your interview - as you can rewatch your video and pick up tips and trick on how to improve your interview skills for next time.
One Interview, Multiple Opportunities
One size fits many- a video interview also allows for your one interview to be used multiple times for many different roles. Rather than waiting to hear if your CV made it to the top of the applicant pile, with video interviewing you either get an interview or valuable feedback to put you ahead of the competition next time.
Skip the First Interview
With so many redundancies lately, it means there are hundreds of candidates’ CVs landing on recruiters desks. As some jobs are advertised by more than one recruitment agency and the client themselves, your CV can end up showing up on the hiring manager’s desk more than once.
If you’re successful, your video will be sent to top clients so you can skip that first interview stage. You can be moved to the second or even the final stage of the interview process.
