Video Job Interviews

Reach more applicants, screen better candidates, and conduct asynchronous job interviews with Video Collectors for your job seekers


Why ask your applicants to submit a video interview?

Video job interviews simplify the hiring process by giving you the flexibility to screen candidates on your own time and ask simple screening questions you want every applicant to answer. 

Do you want to start remotely collecting and publishing video job interviews without the time & expense of a camera crew or video editors? Then this video job interview template will be perfect for you.

We developed this video collector template to be a complete, easy-to-use solution for your respondents to record and upload video testimonials for your organization from any device.

We provide a delightful interface that matches your brand and works seamlessly on Mac, PC, iPhone, Android, and tablets. There's nothing for you – or your respondents – to download or install. All you need to do is share a link to start collecting great video job interviews.

Sample 3-touch email sequence

When inviting people to give you video job interviews via email, we recommend a 3-email sequence. Variations of this email sequence have been used successfully in hundreds of video-request campaigns by Vocal Video customers.

The first email in the sequence is a pre-ask – asking if they'd be open to recording a short video testimonial and thanking them in advance. The second email includes the link to the video collector, a brief explanation of the process, the questions they'll be asked to respond to, and some recording tips. The third email in the sequence is a gentle reminder to block out time to record.

Adapt this sequence to your use case, incentives, and your collector's actual questions, and fire away!

Email #1: The Pre-Ask

Take part in a video job interview

Thank you for your interest in [your organization name]! We wanted to let you know that we received your application and we are delighted that you are considering joining our team.

We reviewed your application and want to move you to the next stage of the interview process. This step involves answering a few questions about yourself via video. We’re collecting video with a tool called Vocal Video, so it should be very easy and only take 5-10 minutes. The recording can be done from your phone or laptop.

Please let me know if you’d still like to be considered for this position and I’ll send the link and the questions right over.

Thanks so much,

Email #2: The Invitation

Video Interview Process

Congratulations for making it to the first step of the screening process.

Here are the details on recording a video - it should take 5-10 minutes altogether. Just click here to record your video:

The 3 questions that we'd like you to answer are:
1. Can you share why you’re interested in this role?
2. Can you (briefly) share about your relevant experience?
3. Where do you see yourself in five years?
Here are a couple of tips:
1) pick a quiet and well lit place
2) avoid having windows or a light source in the background of your shot since that will create glare
3) look directly at the camera
3) relax and be yourself - you'll do great!

Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks again!
