AUSTIN, TX (July 15, 2021) — Indeed, the world’s number one job site, today announced that all jobs posted directly to its platform can add video interviewing options, for both free and sponsored jobs, for no additional charge. This new capability streamlines the hiring process, reducing the time it takes to get candidates to first interviews.
As the pandemic recedes in the US, the postings for jobs employers want to fill quickly continues to rise. Even though some job seekers are still hesitant to start new jobs now, Indeed’s new research suggests that this lack of urgency is temporary, with many job seekers planning to accelerate their job search in the fall. As the number of job seeker searches begins to ramp back up, employers need to be ready to quickly identify and connect with quality candidates.
“With a mismatch in hiring urgency between employers and job seekers, it is crucial that employers have seamless hiring experiences that allow them to find talent in the right place, and at the right time,” said Maggie Hulce, SVP at Indeed. “The pandemic accelerated the use of virtual hiring tools and we’ve leaned into creating solutions to make our technology more collaborative and efficient. Indeed’s latest video interviewing capabilities get candidates into interviews an average of 20% faster than in-person interviews or virtual interviews with a third-party app. Virtual hiring can be the difference in making a quality hire quickly as employer demand is surging above candidate supply.”
Employers who opt in to inviting candidates to interview for their open jobs with Indeed gain access to a suite of tools that allow them to schedule, manage and conduct video or phone interviews for those open roles for free. The majority of interviews take place just over two days after they are arranged, far faster than in-person or virtual interviews through a third-party app. As Indeed gives employers access to 80% of US job seekers through the combined networks of Indeed and its sister company Glassdoor, companies who are urgently hiring gain access to the most diverse set of candidates spanning industries, education levels, and years of experience.
All interviews take place on Indeed’s proprietary interviewing technology Indeed Interview, which has been designed specifically for interviewing. Since there is no software to download, all job seekers and employers need to do is click a unique link and start interviewing. Indeed has hosted more than half a million video interviews to date.
