Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 10, 2014
Spark Hire (http://www.sparkhire.com), the leading online video interviewing platform, recently launched a whitepaper discussing video interviewing strategies for education hiring. The free to download whitepaper entitled, “5 Ways to Hire the Best Education Employees Through Video Interviews,” provides tips on how education employers and staffing professionals can implement video interviews into their hiring process to efficiently connect with and bring in top-notch teachers.
“It’s no secret that filling teaching positions is very difficult right now. Education hiring is currently experiencing a unique problem of having too much and too little,” says Josh Tolan, Spark Hire CEO. “This whitepaper aims to ease the burden that education employers and staffing professionals are carrying by showing them the power they can hold if they recruit and hire with video interviews.”
Each year in the United States, twice as many K-5 elementary school teachers are being trained than are needed. It is expected that between now and the year 2022, positions for high school teachers will only grow by six percent. However, declining student-teacher ratios will result in a very high demand for talent. STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and special education teachers are also sparse. Richard Ingersoll of UPenn determined that America loses 25,000 STEM teachers per year and only 7,000 of these departures are due to retirement.
Video interviewing technology is an affordable solution for education employers and staffing pros who need to bring in great teachers faster, but receive 400 to 600 resumes for a single elementary school position. Specifically, the one-way interview enables candidates to answer your questions by recording short video answers. These can answers can then be viewed at any time and for any duration. You are also able to quickly get a personal feel for a candidate without having to waste time on a phone screen or in a more formal setting.
