Live video interviews FAQ

  • What is a live video interview?

  • A live video interview is one that is conducted in real-time online. HR professionals send job applicants an electronic invitation to meet at a mutually-convenient time, and they connect virtually using a webcam and microphone or their cellphone. Live video interviewing helps recruiters and hiring managers connect with top talent from all over the world. It saves lots of time and money on unnecessary travel by effectively pre-screening applicants. This is why video interviewing is so popular! You’ll want to use a professional hiring software like VidCruiter, which makes online recruitment and interviewing easy. During live video interviews, interviewers can ask candidates questions, rate their answers using the built-in rating scale, and collaborate with colleagues to arrive at hiring decisions more quickly.
  • Does live video interviewing reduce hiring costs?

  • Yes, live video interviewing can certainly minimize hiring costs! How? Video interview software like VidCruiter allows job interviews to take place entirely online, so people no longer have to travel to meet face-to-face. This saves money on travel expenses (gas or airfare, accommodations), which can be very costly. Live video interviews also reduce the wasted time (not to mention the frustration) that comes from interviewee no-shows. If someone does not show up for an interview, the recruiter and/or hiring managers simply close the browser and get back to work. Because video interviews allow HR professionals to get a better sense of applicants earlier in the hiring process, time-to-hire typically decreases. Better yet, these newfound insights usually result in higher-quality hires, so turnover is often reduced, saving even more money.
  • Can you record live video interviews to watch later?

  • Yes, you can record a live video interview to watch (or re-watch) later. You can watch the recorded video on your own or send it to others on the hiring team who may want to watch it after the fact. Using professional video interviewing software like VidCruiter, recruiters and HR professionals have the option to record live video interviews for later reference. This might be shortly after the interview to refresh a recruiter’s memory (or bring someone up to speed if they weren’t able to attend the live video interview), or it could be down the road when considering previously-shortlisted candidates for new job openings.
  • Can hiring teams communicate privately during a live video interview?

  • Yes, hiring teams can communicate during a live video interview without an interviewee knowing about it. Using professional-grade video interviewing software like VidCruiter, anyone on a panel or group interview is able to privately share documents, links, and chat amongst themselves in the built-in private chat box. Being able to easily communicate during a live video interview allows those involved in the hiring process to share opinions to applicant’s answers to interview questions in real-time—and seek further clarification when necessary.
  • Can you conduct a video interview on the phone?

  • Yes, you can conduct a video interview over the phone—so long as both the interviewer(s) and the interviewee(s) have a reliable internet connection and a functional camera and microphone built into the cellphone. Most newer phones require no downloads to connect in-person online, even with professional digital recruitment technologies like VidCruiter. Participants also have the option to dial-in to live digital interviews by phone; there is a backup call-in system that records audio. VidCruiter live video interviews on cellphones are even safe on open public hotspots!
