What is a One-Way Video Interview?

A one-way video interview is a type of job interview where candidates record their answers to pre-set questions via an online platform. The candidate receives an invitation with a link to the interview, and they have a limited time to answer each question before moving on to the next one. This format allows employers to efficiently screen a large number of candidates and provides candidates with flexibility in terms of when and where they complete the interview.

How does video interviewing address discrimination?

Recorded video interviewing brings accountability to your hiring process. Being able to keep a recording of your interview process helps address discrimination related issues. Studies* show that minority applicants actually prefer video interviews over traditional paper resumes. This gives the employer the ability to see all of their candidates as a person, as opposed to just a piece of paper. Video interviews also eliminate the need for travel, this reduces geographical discrimination and gives you a broader talent pool to select from.

My hiring process involves multiple people from my company. How will that fit in with Jobma?

Jobma was built around the ideas of collaboration and teamwork. We understand that hiring in most companies is often a team effort. That is why we give you powerful tools to schedule and coordinate interviews. Our platform also has evaluation tools built in so that your Team can share their evaluations and coordinate better with each other. We also offer video recordings for all your interviews so even if a member of your team misses out on an interview; they have the option of watching it on demand later.

I already have Skype, how would this be different?

Skype is a great tool, but it's very limited in scope if you use it for your hiring process. Skype can only be used live, so there is no way to record, evaluate, and screen candidates ahead of time. With Jobma's pre recorded video interview tool, you can review and weed-out candidates in an organized and efficient manner. Jobma puts your company front and center by allowing you to customize your interviews to showcase your brand. Skype is a great platform for communication, but it's not equipped with the necessary tools for hiring.

Do candidates really like video interviews?

A survey from Software Advice shows that not only do candidates like video interviews; they actually prefer it to traditional interview methods. Video interviews reduce the cost and stress associated with traditional interviews. They are also incredibly convenient, and a great time saver. Candidates love all the benefits that video interviews provide.

What if a candidate doesn’t have a webcam available with them?

Are Employers Required to post a video too?

Although it is not required, it is highly recommended that Employers post a video. A company video pitch will give Job Seekers a closer and more in-depth look at your company.

Our Job Seekers like to learn about the companies they are applying for, and adding a video pitch gives them a deeper sense of what your company is about.
