How The Recruiting Tool Works

  • Candidates provide their name and email address
  • Each candidate records and submits videos answering your questions; the existing tool calls for two videos per candidate (each addressing one question); you can customize it for candidates to include one or more videos.
  • Questions may include why you want to have a particular job and/or work at the company -- and/or reflect a core value of the company.
  • Videos can be viewed, shared and evaluated by multiple individuals
  • Candidates can link to LinkedIn and/or other social sharing sites.
  • Candidates can upload their CV.
