    Thank you for great tips regarding Skype/video interviews!

    One thing to consider when choosing your video interviewing platform is to choose whether you want to use live video interviews (Skype) or so-called on-demand video interviews. The latter option removes you completely from the need of scheduling interviews, and can help you save much more time & resources than live video interviews. Also, on-demand video interviews don't require that much from your internet connection - no need to worry about Skype lag.

    Here's couple of examples of on-demand video interviews, worth checking out: http://bit.ly/1A8ePRc

    Thank you for a great blog post & have a great week!

    Being in the video interviewing space, here at Spark Hire we are definitely seeing the popularity of video interviewing technology growing by the day. It's a very exciting time and we're happy to be a part of it!

    As you said, more and more companies are seeing the value in implementing video interviews into their recruiting and hiring process. Hiring managers are able to improve collaboration among team members so that everyone is able to weigh in on a potential hire. This ensures that smart hiring decisions are being made. The One-Way video interview, our most popular feature, allows employers to shorten their screening process and gain more insight on a candidate than they would when conducting the typical phone interview.

    We recently launched a free e-Course that will be very beneficial to recruiters and will help them become video interviewing experts in just a few days. The “5-Day Crash Course to Video Interviewing” will go over basic information about video interviews, best practices, and strategies for ensuring a great candidate experience: http://resources.sparkhire.com/5-day-crash-course-to-video-interviewing/.
