Using video in their recruitment process
Through COVID, their team started using video more often. Like most recruiting teams using generic video tools, they found that they didn’t have a singular place to store all their videos. Hinterview was the perfect tech solution for TRP. Hinterview solves that issue and made their lives even easier by integrating with Bullhorn and being a cloud-based platform with zero downloads.
The key tool that they use the most is, none other than our founding-feature Hinterview! Hinterview is a world-class candidate presentation and interviewing tool. This feature brings candidates to life through video presentations and offers a faster selection process for hiring managers.
Emily shares that, ‘Hinterview is truly a game-changer in the market. We’re super excited to be one of the first to have it in the Unites States.’ They like Hinterview for the user-friendly UX, which we’re constantly working on for upgrades and refreshments. In fact, we empower our Hinterviewers to connect with our product team directly in a dedicated customer feedback tool so their requests are always top of mind.
Emily says, ‘the nice thing about Hinterview is that it's super easy and user friendly. You do a great job of training and support – you're like an extension to our team.’
