Video interviewing a candidate

The most popular time to conduct video interviews with candidates



Asia’s most renowned regional HR Excellence Awards is back in October in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia to sieve out HR’s finest gems. Are you a diamond in the rough? View the categories and find out more.

If you’re looking to provide a good interview experience to candidates, make note that three in every five video interviews are completed outside of typical business hours (9-5), either after-hours on a weekday, or on the weekend.

Alongside, home is the most popular location for candidates to undertake a video interview (86%), while a friend’s home and even the candidate’s current workplace are equally (un)popular at 5%.

These findings were derived from Sonru’s new whitepaper, which also found that a quarter of all remote interviews are now completed on mobile devices, with IOS systems edging out Android systems (18% versus 8%).

The Sonru team also identified best practices for recruiters to conduct effective video interviewing:

1. Use video introductions: Just over four in five (81%) of the campaigns studied with a 100% completion rate had personalised video introductions.

2. Ask the right number of questions: The majority of interviews (75%) with a full completion rate asked between 5-8 questions per interview, with the least (11%) asking fewer than five questions.

3. Get the interview duration right:  The majority of full-completion interviews (47%) were between 10-14 minutes in length, followed closely by interviews between 15-19 minutes (26%).
