If you've ever had to fill job openings at your solution provider business, you know how difficult recruiting and hiring is. Plain and simple: It's time and resource consuming. Bradford, CEO of HireVue, discusses how to recruit effectively using Apple mobile devices, including iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches.—Jennifer Bosavage, editor
Regardless of your industry or company size, hiring the talent that will propel your company to success requires being at the right place at the right time – before the competition is there – and with a strong employment brand and an enhanced candidate experience. The problem is, recruiting and effectively evaluating job candidates takes time, and often employers invest their resources in screening individuals only to determine that they’re not a right fit for the position or company.
In a market where both unemployment and talent shortages are in abundance, and communications trends point to a mobile movement, the HR technology industry is catching on to offer employers new ways to reach, attract, identify and hire those individuals who are right for their organizations. Companies at the cutting-edge of recruiting are now connecting with and interviewing a diverse range of job candidates all over the globe through the use of Apple mobile devices, including iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches.
A New Approach: iOS Apps and Interviewing
Using SaaS, video and now mobile based technology, companies are improving productivity and effectiveness, and saving money by skipping bad job interviews. With new mobile apps available, employers can create “on demand” job interviews – including video, essay and multiple choice questions – and share them with candidates. Candidates then complete the interview at their convenience using a mobile digital interviewing app and the built-in camera and microphone of their favorite mobile iOS devices. Once complete, employers can review responses, compare candidates side-by-side, share interviews and capture feedback within a cloud-based digital interviewing platform.
There’s nothing more frustrating than flying an individual in for a full day of interviews, only to realize that they’re not the right candidate after the second interview question. Because the app-enabled interviews are recorded, employers are able to avoid scheduling hassles and quickly identify and engage those candidates that are a good match for the position and company. With better insight than a phone screening or resume provides, they can also quickly determine in which candidates they should avoid investing their valuable budgets and time.
Employers can watch, share, replay, skip and compare the interviews at any time, even from their own mobile devices. A business leader in New York can interview a sales candidate in Boston without ever stepping foot on a train. A busy CEO can review and consider executive support candidates while at the airport, waiting to catch their next flight.
