Here are 10 best Video Interview Software Script features of Castasy that enables you to start a Video Interview platform.
In a post pandemic world, It wouldn’t be surprising to note that companies would hire for positions remotely. Apart from safety of the organization and it’s employees, there are varied reasons such as cost cutting, tapping into a much wider talent pool across the globe. That said, there are challenges in the hiring process itself.
Let’s look at some of the challenges that a normal recruiter would face right from scheduling the meeting to hiring the employee.
Top 5 challenges faced by interviewers/ HR
Keeping track of qualified candidates and ranking them would help hiring better employees. There could be a lot of parameters that an individual recruiter looks for in a candidate, all of this needs to be in the incorporated in the tool that they are using, that sadly isn’t the case with many solutions available.
Keeping track of meeting schedules with hundreds of potential candidates everyday could be a cumbersome activity, the Hiring Manager/HR has to check the availability of the candidate and the interviewer without any lapse. Incase of rescheduling, this again has to go through another round of back and forth with the candidate and the interviewer.
Multiple tools and platforms involved
For a simple interview, the HR has to use a different tool to schedule the meeting, conduct preliminary interview questionnaire through another platform, host the video meeting on a Video conference software, take down notes from the interview for scoring the candidate on various factors. keep track of the same to be sent to the management, separate tools to quantify the candidate and ultimately gauge their hiring efficiency process, etc. All are done on separate platforms. Imagine, if you’re a CEO, studying the data across these platforms, would be a nightmare. This isn’t efficient in any way.
Expensive Solutions for easy to fix problems
There are expensive tools that will do just about half the tasks listed, as a startup or a SMB these may not be a viable solution for short term or long term.
Tools that are built on for many Organizations are complex by design, onboarding a new HR every time would require separate training hours spent on coaching them.
These are just some of the challenges faced by recruiters around the globe without the efficient interview and hiring platform.
All of this can be mitigated with the use of a Video Interview Software script.
