What is myInterview?
myInterview is a one-way video interview platform that allows candidates to answer pre-defined interview questions in the initial screening stages - often in place of the traditional phone interview. The recruiter sends a link with a flow of questions creating a sequence of video snippets that form a video introduction The recruiter reviews the videos, shortlisting candidates and engaging hiring managers earlier in the process.
Why use Indeed?
Indeed is the #1 job site in the world, with over 250 million unique visitors every month. Plus it has a free option which is good for some limited-time exposure.

This is where myInterview comes to the rescue, use video interviewing to hear from every candidate so you can more quickly make a decision on who to progress with.
