Tools such as video interviews and social media are powerful solutions that employers can and should utilize to tap into talent pools beyond the confines of their company’s backyard and go global with their recruiting.

Spark Hire (http://www.sparkhire.com), the leading online video interviewing platform, recently launched a whitepaper detailing the various ways hiring professionals can enhance their recruiting strategies to better connect with talent no matter their location. The free-to-download whitepaper entitled, “Connecting with Talent Across Borders”, thoroughly explains how companies can avoid headaches from geographic and time-zone barriers to efficiently make great hires.
“Working with thousands of companies around the world everyday, we understand the frustrations hiring pros have with filling job vacancies due to the ever-present and real skills gap problem,” says Josh Tolan, Spark Hire CEO. “Tools such as video interviews and social media are powerful solutions that employers can and should utilize to tap into talent pools beyond the confines of their company’s backyard and go global with their recruiting.”
Taking a candidate search to a global level doesn’t mean hiring pros have to wait to see candidates until the day of their in-person interview or their first day on the job. With video interviewing technology, hiring pros can immediately make personal connections with long-distance job candidates. The one-way video interview, in particular, allows employers to provide text-based or video questions to help them better assess a candidate’s personality and skills. This type of video interview doesn’t require an employer to be present and can be completed by candidates whenever convenient for them, therefore, scheduling conflicts are avoided.
Other tips discussed in the whitepaper include:
- Using social media to learn more about potential hires
- Tailoring the hiring process to mobile job seekers
- Aligning employer brand with talent brand
