After all not only is the traditional process long, but it can be surprisingly inefficient. A great way employers are looking to update and shorten this process is with video interviews.

There are several ways to utilize video interviews in the hiring process and they bring their own unique advantages to the table. For instance, live video interviews allow employers and job seekers to connect in real time. It’s just like an in-person interview, only without all the travel.

The benefit of one-way video interviews, on the other hand, is that they can be recorded at any time and from anywhere. Have a passive job candidate with a packed schedule? Now the preliminary interview can be fit around the cramped calendar of this top talent.

The infographic below, compiled by Spark Hire, an online video resume and interviewing platform, looks at how employers are using online video interviewing technology in the hiring process. It discusses the difference between live and one-way video interviews and shows how both can save employers time and money while evaluating candidates.

Every company wants to hire superstar employees faster and with less hassle. Video interviews can be a step in this direction.
