What is an Automated interview?
An automated video interview is an interview completed by candidates (using a webcam and computer) at a time and place that suits them. The interviewer enters questions that they want candidates to answer, sets a date that the interview has to be completed by and then invites candidates along to complete the interview. The candidates log in, read and record their answers. It’s not a live interview so the candidates don’t have to be online the same time as the interviewer.
Automated video interviews are becoming the standard method of first interview screening as it allows interviewers to interview people who traditionally would not have been able to make an interview at a certain time and place. It provides interviewers with an efficient, fair and structured method for conducting interviews while at the same time freeing up a candidate's schedule opening up the opportunity to apply for more jobs.
Sonru replicates a live interview online as like in face-to-face interviews, questions are asked without the interviewee seeing them in advance. Once the interview begins it cannot be stopped or re-done and questions are not seen before the interview begins.
If you've been invited to complete an online video interview, visit the Candidate Information Sheet for more information and to see what you need to get started.
