The Benefits of Video Assessments

Video assessments play an essential role in video-led recruitment. They provide recruiters and employers with the opportunity to set a few questions and see the candidates answers on screen. This not only saves time, but also gives hiring managers a better understanding as to whether the candidate is passionate about their potential role and the industry itself, or not.

From this, candidates can assess whether they feel the position and company are, in fact, right for them. If it is, then they can carry on and take part in the assessment, but, if it is not, they can easily withdraw themselves from the process, saving both themselves and the recruiter’s time and effort.
