Quick video recordings of candidates can show you their personality and fit, enabling you to proceed to fewer, higher quality in-person interviews. Recruitment is one of the most important processes for any business - but as any hiring manager knows it’s massively time consuming.
Video is a fantastic tool for the screening stage - setup the questions you'd like to see your candidates answering, send them out to your shortlist and make better decisions about who you take the time to meet face-to-face.
Verbate needs no complex software to integrate with your existing systems. With our simple, easy-to-use interface and unique SMS invites you can get started in minutes.

Your brain has been trained over decades to rapidly assess people by their behaviour and demeanour. Research shows that experienced recruiters and hiring managers know within 90 seconds whether they will hire someone.
When you’re after truly creative people, video can be a fantastic tool for uncovering their ability to think outside the box. When you ask questions, do they record responses sitting at home on a couch - or do they get outside, produce something awesome, and really show off some innovation?
Young, hungry and full of ideas, enthusiasm and excitement. Grad and interns CV’s are notoriously hard to differentiate as most have minimal work experience. More than ever, you’re looking for personalities you can develop and train, and this comes across on video like no other format.
Video can help reduce the number of irrelevant CVs that are generally received from job boards. A great way to prevent this is to only assess applicants who submit video. If an applicant is not willing to put in a little time and effort, then why should you? Video is also quick and easy to share with your team to get a second opinion.
