Video Interviewing vs Skype

Introduction

With today’s technological advancements it is no longer necessary to schedule your face to face interviews based on a candidate’s CV alone. More and more businesses are adding in an additional round of screening, such as video interview to help narrow the talent pool and improve the quality of candidate reaching the next stage.

More than 6 out of 10 businesses in the US have integrated video interview into their recruitment process, and whilst the UK is currently some way behind on this trend, it is quickly catching up.

But what is video interview and why can’t you just use video conferencing, such as Skype?

The use of Skype in the selection process will certainly help to fine tune your shortlist of candidates and ensure that those invited for face to face interview have great potential to be your next employee.

However, using an online 2-way process, such as Skype, for interview comes with its own set of challenges. Non-scheduled video interview overcomes each and every one, making the process of video screening much more productive.
