As much as people think that video interviews are uncovered water for candidates, recruiters also need to be prepped on how to successfully conduct video interviews. I compiled a list of the most important Do’s and Don’ts for recruiters to employ as they begin using video interviews to identify top candidates for their organization.
The Do’s and Don’ts of Video Interviews Do: Begin by thinking about your interviewing strategy.
Come together with your team and determine questions that will help you best identify the perfect candidate. One of the benefits about video interviews is that they give you insight on major candidate information such as personality, social skills, communication skill, cultural fit etc., that will help you determine whether or not the candidate should continue with the interviewing process but you need to ask the right questions. Save factual questions like, “what is the highest degree you obtain?” to a phone or written interview and ask open-ended questions like, “why do you want to work for our company?” for the video interview. Open-ended questions help you gain information about the candidate from the way s/he responds to the question, allowing you to get the most out of your video interview.
