Intro + Closing Videos (On-Demand Only)
Take the Interview recommends adding custom intro and closing video messages, which will significantly enhance the overall candidate experience. Recording a custom video message puts a face to your organization and offers candidates important information about the role, organization, company culture, and other details.
A link to a public video from Youtube can be used or a video can be directly uploaded to TTI (MP4 format). Talk to your CSM for more information.
Creating the Videos
Below are links to generic intro and closing videos. Feel free to copy of the format or use these in your platform.
Sample Intro Message Outline:
Intro: "Hello, I'm NAME, a recruiter here at COMPANY."
Welcome the candidate: "Welcome to your digital interview. A resume can only show us so much about you, and at COMPANY we look for candidates that embody our core values. This first step ensures we get back to you and in front of our team quickly."
Info on your company: "COMPANY is driven by a passion for..." (mission statement/philosophy here)
Info on the position: "As a POSITION TITLE, you'll be given hands-on challenges..." (high-level overview of position)
Closing: "We look forward to learning more about you. If you have any questions along the way, click the support icon to receive assistance or to access additional resources."
Sample Closing Message Outline:
Thank you note: Thanks so much for taking the time to tell us a little bit more about yourself.
Sign off: We look forward to reviewing your video. We will be in touch [provide timeframe] with next steps.
Adding the Videos to TTI
When it’s time to upload or add your link, navigate to the ‘Settings’ page, scroll down to the ‘Intro Video’ or ‘Closing Video’ section, click the dropdown, and determine how you would like to add your video.
You can create a company-wide intro and closing video, which you add on the ‘Settings’ homepage. Videos added at the company-wide level will auto populate on the department level.
You can also create department specific intro and closing videos to differentiate the various sectors of your business, and tailor the videos to be a bit more specific. To do this enter the desired department (see ‘Departments’ for additional information), and add your links there.
