Different videos in recruiting
Some applicant management software have an integrated tool for conducting video interviews. But even without the use of an integrated system or software, the use of video interviews is available to HR departments.
There are many different video variants that are used in E-Recruiting.
The most common variant of video calls are live video calls. During the live video call, all participants (applicants as well as recruiters and line managers) log into the same video call. The video can then be held in real time but independent of location.
Possible use cases
We recommend first and foremost to use tools that are already in use in the company. From our own experience, we can recommend Google Hangouts (Google Meet) or Demodesk as tools.
In general, with any video variant, it should be noted that detailed instructions are already sent with the invitation. So that the candidates can also prepare themselves accordingly and know what the technical requirements are and what the procedure is.
Whenever possible, there should also be a variant to check and test the technical requirements in advance.
Here you can find more tools, which are in use at our company.
Of course, there are also countless free as well as paid alternatives:
