The EasyHire.me team is very excited to launch Live Video Panel Interviews!
This feature has been on our roadmap for several years now. However with the shelter-in place conditions under COVID-19, we’ve seen an increased demand for this feature from employers.
Panel interviews are live interviews where a candidate is interviewed by multiple interviewers. Interview panel usually consists of the hiring manager, team lead, HR representative, and senior team members. The panel team may differ according to the organization’s type. Also, Panel interviews are often used for internal audits of the interview process and practices.
Easyhire.me allows conducting video Panel Interviews with up to 4 interviewers. Every interview panel member can add the question to the interview and leave grades and comments.
To invite interviewers click on the “Add Panel Members” button in the “Set up live interview” form. The interviewer can select panel interviewers from their team members.
Panel interview members will receive an interview confirmation e-mail after the candidate confirms the interview date and time. After the interview has been finished, all participants may view interview playback and submit a scorecard.
While On-Demand interviews is still the most common and efficient way to pre-screen a large number of candidates, for many types of jobs Panel interviews are an essential tool in getting to know how candidates perform under stressful conditions.
We have taken on the challenge of simplifying the workflow for prospecting candidates and further improve your easy hire experience.
Our approach combines two distinct ideas that we have been hearing from you – provide actionable content for candidates and set up self-service workflows to deal with scale.
You can now create a public link to your EasyHire.me job posting and use it in all your job board postings, social media campaigns, and even email messages. Candidates will be able to click to take an On Demand interview immediately and not have to wait for you to schedule one. You also get notified on your Slack channel and Email when candidates submit their interviews.

You pick up the phone and eagerly dial the number of your next promising candidate. Their resume and cover letter are stellar and their application looks impressive. This should be easy- they have all the credentials, skills, experience, and knowledge to make a great fit for the position. Let’s get to know them on the phone and see if they might be a good fit for the company.
Except it isn’t as easy as you thought. Phone calls are a tough way to get to know someone.
Although the statistics vary about what percent of communication is based upon non-verbals, it can certainly be agreed upon that a phone call means you might miss the following as compared to a video interview:
Facial expression. During a video interview, whether it be live or recorded, a hiring manager or recruiter can see someone’s face, their reactions, both positive and negative, and glean a lot of insight into the candidate. Is the smile genuine? Are they making “eye contact”? Are they looking confident?
Body language. During a phone interview, you can only guess what the candidate is doing on the other line. On a video interview, you can see whether the candidate is leaning forward intently, suggesting interest. You can see if their arms are cross, if they are excessively yawning, or have their feet on the desk.
Professional appearance. Is the candidate dressed professionally? Of course, a video interview is the only way to know!
How can recruiters and hiring managers move from the classic phone screening interview to a video interview process while still keeping the convenience and low-cost? EasyHire.me is an all-inclusive interview management platform that addresses the needs of assessing the non-verbal cues a candidate provides with both live and on-demand interviews, as well as a scorecard to objectively rate aspects of the candidate such as genuineness, professionalism, and interest.
