My favorite aspect of Spark Hire is being able to gauge a candidate’s personality and soft skills immediately rather than having to wait until an in-person interview.

Video interviewing allows us to bring more candidates into our funnel to assess people with a wider range of backgrounds/different experience without spending more time on the hiring process.

The Challenge

When introducing new recruiting technology, candidates may have a negative reaction to being on video, but this actually indicates a lot about the interest level of the applicant. EventMobi found that most candidates said they liked using video interview as a screening solution and expressed that it was an interesting, new experience.

Quote Mark

Almost every single job at EventMobi is screened using Spark Hire as a first stage.

Video To The Rescue

Using Spark Hire’s video interviewing platform, EventMobi was able to widen the talent pool by placing open interview links so top talent could easily complete their video interview on their own time. The hiring managers at EventMobi would then review and share the videos with their team to validate new hires.
