Video Repository Platform
A recruitment company faced challenges in pre-screening and pre-interviewing candidates for big tech firms. The process was manual and time-consuming, leading to difficulties in effectively evaluating and tracking the performance of candidates. The client envisioned automating the entire interview scheduling process.
A scheduling module was required as part of the platform, allowing recruiters and panelists to schedule and participate in interviews.
Integration with Zoom:
The platform was integrated with Zoom, allowing recruiters and panelists to participate in interviews seamlessly. This integration provided a secure and convenient platform for conducting remote interviews, with the ability to record and store the interviews in the video repository.
To address the issue, a web application was built for the recruitment company, aimed at solving the problem of pre-screened or pre-interviewed candidates. The platform, dubbed “YouTube for Interviews”, provided a video repository of interviewed and screened candidates, helping big tech firms to recruit seamlessly. The platform also acted as a job portal, where candidates could apply and be interviewed, with their video submitted as a resume.
