Why would I want to have an InterActive Applicant answer only in text?
Recording answers only in text allows you to evaluate an applicant’s writing skills and ability to communicate her thoughts on paper. Although recording text answers allows you to evaluate this part of the applicant’s skill set, the advantages to recording responses using a webcam are numerous. As a hiring manager, it will allow you to evaluate an applicant’s enthusiasm, ability to verbally communicate, knowledge of the position, and team fit. Viewing an InterActive Applicant’s video response allows for better assessment by an employer during the screening process…prior to the first interview.
