The rise of remote recruitment has forced businesses across the globe to take advantage of video interviewing platforms. And with 30% of the UK now working remotely at least once a week, there’s never been a better time to embrace the power of video.
Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of video job specs and pre-recorded interviews in 2022…
The benefits of video job specs
In today’s fast-paced digital world, video job specs are becoming a popular way of reaching talent via the social media platforms they’re already active on – such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and TikTok. A quick 60-second video job description that showcases your opportunity is far more compelling and engaging than a 1,000-word block of text. They can also increase click-through rates to your website and social channels – which is great for passive jobseekers!
If you’re unfamiliar with video job specs, or you need some tips from the experts, our team can advise on how to position your brand and the role you’re hiring for. If you don’t feel comfortable recording or posting the video yourself, we’ll do it for you! Here’s an example of what this might look like in action. Our team will also share it on our social media, as well as emails and SMS for greater reach.
The benefits of pre-recorded video interviews
Including pre-recorded video interviews in your recruitment toolbox can save you (and the applicant) hours of time. This is especially important if you’re hiring remote workers in different time zones. It’s an easy way to evaluate candidates at your own pace – and it gives you a better insight into their skills and personality. They’re also a great way for candidates to present themselves in the best light possible. On top of that, pre-recorded videos can be shared with your existing team for internal feedback and better decision-making.
Of course, you’ll need to screen candidates before inviting them to conduct a pre-recorded video interview. Again, that’s where we come in…
