When you send a VV Recruiter request the job applicant receives an email which has instructions on how to use VideoValidate to return a 90 second or less video describing why they are a fit for the job advertised. Here is a sample email:
EEOC and Use of Video Interviews and the Law:
The EEOC, the federal agency that enforces Title VII and the other federal non-discrimination laws, has maintained a neutral stance on the use of video interviews. Instead, the EEOC has directed employers to its guidance and technical assistance regarding employee selection procedures and related guidance that it has issued of a general nature. In addition, the EEOC has itself indicated that it would video interviews where needed.
We feel video interviewing such as VideoValidate actually helps prevent discrimination by allowing disadvantaged individuals that may not otherwise have a convenient way to schedule in-person multiple job interviews a way to provide additional insight as to their character and qualifications. Recent EEOC surveys suggested 80-85% of companies now use social media to vet candidates during the hiring processing and the use of video is a useful extension of that.
