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.
Explicit Customer Consent
It’s now a must to ask customers first before processing or storing their data. The request not only needs to be clear and see but it also must be done so in a straightforward way by using easy to understand language. Silence or inactivity from the side of the customer should not be taken as a yes and companies that use their info must be able to prove that they received approval. Also, your customers now have the right to withdraw consent upon request in a reasonable timeframe.
Get A Data Protection Officer (DPO) If You Can
Hiring someone who specializes in data protection can save you a lot of worries. Your DPO is your point person to ensure GDPR compliance. This is especially important for companies larger than 10 to 15 employees that process personal data on daily basis and in sheer numbers. But what does the DPO role actually do? The role entails:
Regular and systematic monitoring of data on a large scale
Processing on a large scale of special categories of data
Conduct A Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA)
You’ll definitely need to conduct a data protection impact assessment if your company stores personal data in a permanent storage. This should be done before any project should be carried out and it’s basically an audit within the company that will allow you to measure the effectivity of safeguarding the privacy of the individuals whose data you store. The DPIA aims to achieve these three:
Compliance with applicable legal, regulatory and policy requirements
Establish the risks and effects
Evaluates protections and alternative processes to mitigate privacy risks
Data Breach Policies
There will always be substantial risks when it comes to storing data. And Data Breach policies ensure that your customers’ trusts will be kept intact in case of the worse scenarios – which is data breach. The GDPR requires companies to notify local data protection authorities of any data breach situation within 72 hours of discovery. And yes, this means that every company will need the kind of technology that will allow them to detect and address breaches within a certain timeframe. Note as well that this is one of the stricter GDPR requirements and you may have to overhaul your internal data security policies for this.
Giving Them The Right to Opt-Out
Deleting personal data not only minimizes the amount of data each company has to keep but also gives customers the freedom to choose. So if a certain data is not needed or has been requested to be deleted, then the answer is yes delete it. And as mentioned, customers have every right to request to be taken off email lists and other such lists that a company may have that they store for marketing or other such purposes.
We value our users’ privacy and know that the GDPR is aimed at making people know that their personal data are safe and not being used in some way that they do not approve. So here’s a quick rundown of what we changed to be GDPR compliant.
We have recently added many cool features to the EasyHire platform. Below is a list of new features that we added lately:
1. Mobile video interview – Your candidates can take the video interviews from their mobile from anywhere, at any time. EasyHire offers a seamless interview experience across desktop, Android, and iOS devices. Check out more on mobile video interviews here.
2. SMS notification – You can configure SMS notification to receive alerts when interviews are completed by the candidates.

4. Setting up multiple interviews – You can now upload a CSV file with a list of candidates and set up interviews for multiple candidates with a single click.
5. Redesigned the interview room – We have redesigned the interview room with a slick look. Your candidates will love the interview experience.
The interview process is unique to each organization. It depends on the type of the job, the role, and the level. Some roles emphasize the candidate’s communication and presentation skills whereas others give more importance to domain knowledge and skill set.
A video interview would be the right choice if the role requires assessing the candidate’s presentation skill along with other things. On the other hand, a simple online assessment test would be sufficient if it is required to evaluate whether the candidate has the domain knowledge and the right set of skill for the job. EasyHire provides options for conducting both types of interviews – a video interview as well as an assessment test.
