Michelle Amici, Head of Talent Acquisition for Technology and Engineering at NBCUniversal
The quicker and more effectively we can identify cultural fit, assess communication skills and evaluate the candidates, the better hiring decisions we can make. Digital interviewing has helped us accomplish this goal.”
For many job openings at NBCUniversal, the first step in the screening process is now a pre-recorded interview using ConveyIQ for Interviewing. Instead of scheduling and conducting phone interviews with each qualified candidate, recruiters begin the process by inviting candidates to answer interview questions online and on their own time. The responses are recorded and sent back to the assigned recruiter, who assesses which candidates to move to the next step.
With a live video screen, recruiters are put directly in front of the candidate, regardless of where they are. When a candidate engages with an NBCUniversal recruiter, it is through a secure, high-definition and branded video chat. These interviews can be recorded, annotated, tagged and shared with their hiring managers for feedback, which improves collaboration among decision-makers and reduces the time it takes to obtain feedback, ultimately improving time-to-hire-rates.
Since utilizing digital interviewing as part of their hiring process, NBCU’s recruiting team has been able to engage with a larger pool of candidates while maintaining an efficient process and reducing time-to-fill.
These efficiencies have allowed the team to spend more time focused on sourcing great talent and selling the most qualified candidates on why they should work at NBCUniversal. As Amici puts it, “this has been a game changer for our talent acquisition process.”
