Job Seekers And Recruiters Say Skype Not Suited For Interviewing
With 250 million people using Skype each month, why do only 24 percent of active job seekers and 39 percent of recruiters agree that Skype is easy to use for a job interview? The next challenge is the candidate experience. For hiring organizations this means that the positive candidate experience they’ve worked so hard to create is suddenly at the mercy of a piece of technology that is not within their control. For candidates, their stress levels are high enough without trying to compensate for technology hiccups this isn’t grandma fading in and out, it’s your potential boss and you didn’t hear his last question. This leaves candidates feeling frustrated and unhappy about their interview experience, which then transfers to the organization.
