Video Interviews: A Template for Success

by | Jan 31, 2019

by Ben Hess, Managing Director, ThirdPool Recruiting

Earlier this week, I briefly outlined some of the best practices for conducting video interviews.

I sketched-out a basic framework for an effective connection, but didn’t provide much detail on how the best interviews are actually conducted.

To provide more detail, I’m making our video interviewing template available for download.

This template was developed, tweaked, and continually updated many times during the process of conducting dozens of video interviews with live prospects. It was also tested with several different hiring managers.

You’ll find it flows smoothly and focuses on many of the important issues you’ll want to uncover during the interview.

It also provides some good questions for building rapport in the video chat environment.

Finally, we’re making it available in an editable format, so you can make your own improvements and adapt it for the needs of your organization.

Download it and give it a try.

Your first interview may feel a little awkward, but you’ll gain your stride quickly.

You’ll soon develop into a video interviewing pro.
