Conducting Video Interviews: A Guide

Conducting video interviews is on the rise as organisations nationwide are adapting to the practicalities of operating an increasingly remote workforce.

The impact of Covid-19 is amplifying this trend in 2020. Finding leading talent remains a core business priority and undertaking effective screening is paramount. To achieve this, many organisations are adopting video interviewing. There are many benefits to this style of screening but getting it right is critical. What is the best way to conduct an effective video interview that will set your hiring team up for success while delivering the most positive experience for candidates?

Digital communication tools make remote interviewing a highly effective, low cost and time saving option for clients and candidates alike. In many cases, it will involve a multi-stage process with both telephone screening and live interviews via videoconference.

Whilst some organisations are well versed in utilising remote screening methods, for others transitioning to this mode of engagement has been rapidly accelerated by the new workforce practicalities brought on by Covid-19. For some, the incorporation of video has been a challenging transition.

With 25 years of experience M&T Resources has a wealth of exposure to the engagement and screening models of leading organisations across Australia. Furthermore, through our engagements with candidates both across Australia and internationally, we have developed our own best practice for undertaking remote interviewing, including via video.

We have compiled our How To Guide for Video Interviewing to assist organisations that are transitioning to or refining their established remote interviewing processes.
