Video conferencing is becoming easier and cheaper, but organisations should be wary of the buzz.

    Very insightful post, Cameron. The growing popularity of video interviews is very exciting and all of us here at Spark Hire are happy to be a part of it! The sharing of sensitive information is tricky no matter what technology is being used. If it must be done through video, it is important to ensure that you are on a secure Internet connection that can only be accessed by those with the password.

    Furthermore, at Spark Hire we don’t believe that video interviews should replace face-to-face interviews -- it’s extremely necessary to meet someone in person before extending a job offer to them. However, video interviews a great tool for getting to that step of the hiring process faster. Technology, if used properly, can be a very powerful tool for employers so it is crucial that they take advantage of the resources so readily available to them. Utilizing video interviews will lead to time and money being saved and great hires being made! We actually released a free whitepaper recently entitled, “The 2014 Forecast for Video Interviewing”, that I think is relevant here: http://resources.sparkhire.com/2014-forecast-for-video-interviewing/
