Video Interviewing – What the Future Looks Like
Can you believe it is already 2018? Think about all the technological advances there have been in the last 10 years… no actually make that 5 years - it is truly unbelievable! All of this new technology has created a culture of “now”. Interested in watching something on TV – just stream it, “now”. Do you want to ask someone a quick question, no matter where they are – just shoot them a text, “now”. Do you want to order something and have it delivered today – just get online and order it, “now”.
Move that thinking to the human resources or recruiting department of an organization where they think, if only we could start to screen for this position “now”. If only we can confirm this candidate is as good in person, as they are on paper “now”. This is where the advantage of video interviewing comes into play.
