In today’s world, it’s no secret that your next top employee might not live in the same city, state or even the same country. As business owners and hiring managers we, typically, follow the practice of accepting resumes, contacting prospects for a phone interview and then follow-up with an in-person interview. It’s that personal face time that often helps us determine if the potential employee is the right person for the job. In the past, this has been a problem with distant job applicants. The only solution was for the potential employee to travel for an interview before relocating. Video conferencing now offers businesses an easier solution to help them hire the perfect employee.
Will Video Conferencing Replace Traditional Interviews?
If your company is paying for travel and lodging expenses to interview remote applicants, these costs can add up quickly. Even if your company can afford these massive expenses, why would you want to needlessly waste your budget? In these cases, video conferencing is a wonderful cost-effective solution.
If your company is not covering the travel costs you still benefit because you’re opening your doors to highly skilled prospects who are willing to relocate after being hired.
Video Conferencing Interviews
Even when interviewing local job applicants, there are advantages of video conferencing over traditional methods. When accepting interviews, it not only affects your time management but also that of others in the human resources department. Information is getting passed back and forth internally and potential applicants are flowing in and out of the office day after day. This becomes both distracting and time-consuming. Video conferencing doesn’t require these back and forth communications within the office and it’s as simple as making a phone call. Most importantly, it gives you that personal face time to better evaluate the prospects potential.
