Significance of Video Interviewing

· Video interviewing is playing a significant role in maintaining social distance as a way of adhering to the set public health measures to avoid the spread of the novel coronavirus. Interviewers can interview job seekers through video interviewing without having to meet face to face.

· Video interviewing eases the burden of making schedules. For both the interviewer and the interviewee, one can quickly fix a few minutes to join a video interview, even during their busiest days.

· Video interviewing is also less costly in terms of both time and money. Video interviewing reduces by large margins the amount of time you would spend traveling to attend a face to face interview.

· Video interviews also make the interviewees more comfortable. The fact that the interviewer is not in front of you physically is so relieving to the interviewee. This gives them a chance to display the required traits and confidence.

· Video interviewing also gives the recruiter high chances of picking the most suitable individual for the job since it can be conducted on individuals from anywhere in the world.

Important things to consider when using video interviewing

· Ensure you are using a reliable internet connection for convenience and efficiency.

· Also, ensure you find a quiet place away from all the noise and distractions.

· The interviewer should also consider the positions that require video interviewing since not all are eligible to use this method. Some crucial positions, like those in the top management, cannot be filled through virtual recruitment.

· Candidates should also ensure they put on the outfit that they would use if it were a face to face interview. Dressing smart should be mandatory for both virtual and face to face interviews as it boosts one's confidence and also gives an excellent first impression.

Organizations should consider implementing the use of video interviewing for convenience and recruitment of quality and competent personnel.
