HRchitect Tech Vendor News: Jobvite Unveils First-Ever Native Video-Interviewing Solution to Create Comprehensive Recruiting Platform

Jobvite Video accelerates, enhances, and builds consistency in the applicant screening process


Burlingame, Calif., October 7, 2013—Jobvite, the leading recruitment platform for the social web, today announced Jobvite Video, a built-in video-interviewing product that gives hiring teams a way to quickly and effectively screen candidates. Today’s businesses face several hurdles when it comes to hiring, ranging from the fluidity of careers to the increasing number of people involved in the hiring process. Jobvite Video helps companies recruit more efficiently and be more assured of candidates early on in the hiring process, saving time and money.

“Advances in social, mobile, and cloud technologies have changed recruiting tremendously. Recruitment is now marketing, and companies need to market their job opportunities like they do their products to consumers,” said Dan Finnigan, president and CEO of Jobvite. “This has spurred a growing demand for video interviewing from both recruiters and hiring managers. Jobvite Video is the first recruiting platform to meet this demand and will significantly aid companies in engaging and screening talent faster and more efficiently.”

The global talent pool is shrinking rapidly and candidates come to the application process with more information than ever before, creating a need for companies for one recruiting-focused platform with best-of-breed products.

Jobvite Video enables companies to easily create the kind of candidate experience top candidates now expect, while offering significant time and cost savings compared to piecemeal point solutions. The only video-screening solution built directly into a recruiting platform and job seeker portal, Jobvite Video offers lasting value and unmatched user experience through configurable welcome pages, invitation-specific expirations, and side-by-side evaluations.

From a single login recruiters will be able to invite, interview, screen, schedule, track and hire effortlessly from their desks. These capabilities will not only accelerate candidate screening, but also reduce remote hiring costs and facilitate panel feedback early in the hiring process leading to better candidate matches. The time saved and the feedback enabled will allow recruiters to understand their talent funnels and level of engagement better.

Unlike other video platforms, Jobvite Video is natively built to work seamlessly across the entire hiring process.  Jobvite Video offers full security, candidate controls, archiving, and unlimited playback for a safe, secure, and optimized job seeker experience. Invitation-specific expirations ensure a timely response from candidates, while giving candidates the ability to interview at their own schedules from their preferred locations.

“Jobvite Video will enable our recruiters to reach out to more candidates in a more effective manner,” said Scott Carlson, Director of Human Resources at Command Transportation. “It not only will provide candidates flexibility in scheduling their interviews, it will also help us make more informed decisions about people beyond what’s in their resume.”

Jobvite Video is another innovative addition to Jobvite’s recruitment platform, including Jobvite Engage, the 2013 winner of HR Tech Product of the year that enables companies to market and build talent pools, Jobvite Refer, the pioneering social recruiting tool that has changed the marketplace, as well as Jobvite Hire, the company’s flagship applicant tracking system used by the world’s fastest-growing companies.
