In an age of mobile revolution, video interviewing is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with:

As mobile-friendly video applications grow and bandwidth limitations become less of an obstacle to high-quality viewing, video has emerged as a force in mobile recruiting.

Mobile recruitment is ideal for reaching top Millennial candidates.

When you’re aiming to reach top Millennial candidates (those aged 19-35 years) your mobile interviewing capabilities should be at the absolute forefront of your recruiting strategy. This generation grew up with smart phones and live their whole lives around their favorite mobile device. Millennial candidates naturally feel confident when they engage with digitally-advanced prospective employers with recruitment processes that are obviously on the cutting edge of mobile technology.

Millennials also appreciate the flexibility to take their interviews at a time and place that suits them. It shows your company respects their various time commitments with regards to their education, family, and present employer

Recruiters also benefit from flexible access and speed-to-hire improvement.

With mobile-capable video interviewing, recruiters now have instant mobile access to screen, interview, and follow up conversations with candidates. Mobile video adds flexibility to the entire recruitment process by easier scheduling of candidate interviews, and also making it easier for upper management and other decision-makers to review interviews and become involved in recruitment decisions.

In fact, you can’t afford not to jump onto the mobile interviewing bandwagon. This is the new reality because mobile works to increase speed-to-hire at such a rapid pace that competitors risk missing out on top talent if they don’t keep up with the latest technology.
