HireVue Resources for Search Committees

HireVue Video Interviews are widely loved by search committees who have used it across campus. Not only will it save the search committee time, but it will also create a fairer and more equitable search by using a standardized review process through the HireVue system. Each committee member will have the role of Evaluator in the HireVue system.

How HireVue Works

Setting up a HireVue interview can happen while the posting is open, allowing the committee to send out the video interviews as soon as candidates have been determined to move forward. Each question will be rated on a 1-5 star rating process, allowing candidates to be reviewed equally by each committee member based on the questions asked during this round of interviews.

Tip: Reach out to candidates via email or phone first to keep these completion statistics high. Many times, candidates will disregard the invite if not pre-warned, or it may end up in their spam/junk folder. By giving them a pre-warning, they are ready for the invite and can complete the interview.

As candidates complete their interviews, committee members can complete their reviews. Depending on the completion time of candidates and the deadline, you can send out and complete this round of interviews in about a week.

Reminder: The faster that you evaluate the interviews, the quicker the final meeting among committee members can happen to determine who is moving on to the next round of interviews. This, in turn, quickens the search process altogether.
