Six ways to create an enjoyable and comfortable on-demand interview

Six ways to create an enjoyable and comfortable on-demand interview

A vast majority of candidates we polled reflected that interview process is very stressful to them. They felt even more stressed about an upcoming video interview. This was because they did not know what to expect, given this format is fairly new. Additional stress was due to the lack of feedback during a one way video-interview.

 

So we decided to share some tips for making EasyHire.me video interviews more comfortable for your candidates.

  • Create a clear branded image of the hiring team using customization options!

You can add your company logo, corporate colors, the email signature to all emails that are sent to candidates. This feature is available on the Teams page – Customization tab.

Ask your hiring team to fill out their profiles and add their photos.This will significantly increase candidate’s level of trust and confidence.

Profile photo can be specified by clicking on the profile drop down and selecting the Settings option.

Each team member can easily specify their title, position and responsibilities in the “About Me” section of their profile.

 

  • Compose a friendly email invitation to the interview!

Easyhire.me allows hiring managers to customize emails that will be sent to candidates on behalf of the team. This option is available on the Team page, the Email Templates tab. Often candidates get acquainted with a vacancy from an invitation to the interview – create your perfect invitation!

 

  • Add a welcome video message.

Take the opportunity to greet your candidates by creating video messages. Candidates will see the welcome video before they start interviews. This is a great way for a hiring manager to introduce themselves, share exciting facts about the company and team, provide more details about the position and the interview process.

You can record one video introduction and use it for all your question sets, or record an unique introduction to each set.

 

  • Be creative when composing a question set! 

 

In order to diversify question set you may use any combination of the following types of questions:

  • Video questions
  • Quiz questions
  • Text questions
  • Technical questions with the code runner
  • Questions with attached images

Our candidate surveys showed that when candidates see a video question, they feel less anxious about their own video recording. Therefore we recommend creating at least one video question.

One good way to create such question is to ask several of your colleagues to record a video question. You can then combine these into a single question set. As a result, candidates would get to know their potential future team before the formal on site interview. This way they are more likely to be excited about the position and have a much higher chance of a more positive outcome of the interview process.

For Default questions use the editor to create a question, attach a picture or insert a link.

Add time to prepare to your questions so that candidates get the opportunity to fully understand questions and think about the answers before being recorded. This will result in more complete and detailed answers.

 

  • Begin the interview with simple and open-ended questions, for instance:

«Tell us about yourself»

«Why are you interested in the role?»

«Describe your current (or most recent) position»

and then add more complex questions.

 

  • Thank the candidate for taking the interview.

Add «Thank you» video-message to your question sets. In this video, you can thank the candidate for the interview and explain to them what next steps will be taken if they will be approved or rejected.

 

We wish you good luck in finding and selecting suitable employees, and Easyhire.me will make this process easy and fast!!!

Make your video interview more friendly and special!

Make your video interview more friendly and special!

It is very important to make the video interview process easy and comfortable for the candidate. Easyhire.me took care of the usability of the platform and in order to make the interview more comfortable for the candidate, we give managers the opportunity to record a video introduction and “Thank you” message for on-demand and assessment interviews.

The video could explain to candidates in a simple and positive way how to take an interview. The survey showed that such videos relieve stress before the interview and help the candidate feel more comfortable while recording video.

 

In this article we will explain in more detail how to do it.

In your introduction video you can share with candidates information about your company, greet him/her or advise how to behave in an interview. You can create new question set or add a video introduction to old question set.  Open the menu and click on Configure button.

In order to thank the candidate for the completed interview and tell how feedback will be provided you should configure “Thank you” message. Record your own video or add a link from YouTube.

Easyhire.me recorded a special video for Practice Interview. We are confident that it will help candidates to quickly master the video interview and enjoy the process! Take Easyhire.me Practice interview, watch the video and record your unique Introduction and “Thank you” video for candidates.
