Following on from our post last week about common misconceptions of video interviews, today we want to debunk the myth that Video Interviewing favours candidates that are technically savvy.
97% of candidates find our software easy to use
In the rolling candidate survey that we’ve been honing since 2011, we ask candidates to answer either Yes or No to: Did you find the software easy to use? and 97% of candidates answered ‘Yes’. Good news but then we had the bright idea to dive deeper into the data to see if other factors — behavioural and demographic — influenced this ease of use such as:
- Whether Candidates had completed the Video Interview in their native language. The 97% stat held for both cohorts.
- Whether Candidates had previously completed a Video Interview. The 97% stat held for both cohorts.
- What device Candidates had completed a Video Interview. The 97% stat held for both desktop/laptop users and mobile competions.
- The Age of Candidates. The 97% stat held for all age groups except the over 55s with 95% saying they found the software easy to use.
- The Gender of Candidates. The 97% stat held for all genders.
