Online interviews for recruiters

In recent years due to COVID-19, the recruiting industry has been shifting towards a more digitalized one. The change happened fast and the industry hasn’t been able to adapt fully. It means there are many ways to improve your process as a recruiter. Constant interviews take up a lot of time and even then you aren’t always getting what you need from them. There are ways to shorten those interviews while getting more information simultaneously. This blog will explore some of the ways in which you can make your online meetings cost and time-efficient.

Meeting summaries

There are multiple ways to automate several processes which in turn decrease the time needed to conduct an interview. One of those ways is to have meeting minutes. Meeting minutes basically is a written record of everything that’s happened during a meeting. By having a summary of what happened during the meeting you can ensure nothing gets lost and save time as you no longer need to write down the summary yourself.

Having a transcription

If you have constant interviews you might have had this problem. You were interviewing someone who has a different dialect or is a foreigner who has an accent as his native language differs from yours. When you have such interviews it sometimes gets difficult to understand the other party. If you would have a traceable transcription and you could look at it in real-time or look back at it after the meeting it would save you time. It would save you time because there wouldn’t be a need to constantly ask the other party what was said and make the interview not fluent and lengthy. It would also decrease the number of follow-ups needed for clarifications.

Interviews on the phone

Sometimes you might find yourself in a situation where you need to do an online interview while being not home. This leads you to the decision to make the interview on the phone. It doesn’t sound like a pleasant experience and in most case, it is not. There are several problems like not always being able to hear the other party well or having connection issues. However, there are certain ways in which you can make them exceptionally organized with the slightest effort. One of those solutions is using isLucid.
