Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
Spark Hire (http://www.sparkhire.com), the leading online video interviewing platform, recently launched a whitepaper discussing video interviewing strategies for battling the skills gap. The free to download whitepaper entitled, “5 Ways to Use Video Interviews to Jump the Skills Gap”, provides employers and staffing professionals with tips on how to best utilize video interviewing technology to ensure they are connecting with the right candidates.
“Hiring professionals are currently faced with an unusual problem. More than forty percent of recent college graduates are unemployed or underemployed, but companies are having difficulty finding candidates with the right skills for their open positions,” says Spark Hire CEO, Josh Tolan. “This whitepaper will empower employers and recruiters with video interviewing strategies that give them the ability to jump the skills gap and efficiently connect with top-notch candidates who will actually contribute to their company’s success and not just fill seats.”
Nearly 40 percent of companies have open positions that they are unable to fill. This largely has to do with the difficulty of finding the right candidates. Once they are found, they are extremely hard to scoop up before the competition. Moreover, 61 percent of companies admit to having been forced to settle on hiring someone who didn’t fully meet the requirements of the job.
Companies looking to quickly address skills gap obstacles while saving money should turn to video interviewing. Six out of ten companies are already experiencing the benefits of this technology. The one-way interview, in particular, is especially convenient for employers and staffing professionals because it enables candidates to answer questions by recording short video answers. These recorded responses can then be viewed at any time and for any duration. Hiring professionals are also able to quickly get a personal feel for a candidate and determine their passion, dedication, and growth potential.
