How video interviewing is changing the job application process

Video interviews are a new tool in the job seeking process that can be mastered as you did writing your resume and submitting job applications electronically. What’s more, video interviews give you a greater opportunity to capture the attention of a potential recruiter and stand out amongst other candidates
 

  • Breaks down geographic boundaries. If you make it through this first round you can progress with the assurance that you’ve impressed the organisation and you’re not wasting time and money travelling to interviews.
     
  • Video interviews enable candidates to show who they really are. A CV is just words and a phone screen, a voice. With a video interview, you can show your personality and your enthusiasm for the role. Being able to tell a story on video is a real advantage.
     
  • Fair comparison. Video interviews give every candidate an equal playing field. In a video interview, you’re given exactly the same time as other candidates and asked identical questions.
     
  • Increased opportunities to be seen. As your video interview is recorded, the opportunity for you to get your face and name in front of more than one decision maker within a company increases. This also means that your opportunity as a potential employee does not solely rest on one person’s opinion.  
  • While video interviewing may be a new concept to grasp, it does present great opportunities and efficiencies to the job search journey. If you’ve been asked to complete a video interview, make sure you check out ‘what is video screen and how does it work?’ to help you get started. 

    With a video interview, you can show your personality and your enthusiasm for the role.
