Set the deadline, not the time
Simply enter your interview questions, set the deadline and invite candidates by email. Watch and share the responses when completed.
Say goodbye to scheduling and conducting time consuming first round phone or Skype interviews, and say hello to structured, automated video responses to your questions and tests that you can view and share when it suits.
Sonru replicates the format of a phone or F-2-F interview
Candidates log in to read and record their answers, without having to be online at the same time as the interviewer.
Like a traditional interview, candidates don’t see the questions in advance, and they respond to one question at a time. Even better, you set the maximum read and answer times for each question.
Share, comment and review
Fit recruitment around your schedule.
You decide when to review the candidate responses, and they can be viewed multiple times.
Invite your colleagues and hiring managers to review and give feedback on candidates, so you kick start the preliminary selection process without interrupting your schedules.
Sonru is available in multiple languages
The Sonru application is now available in English, French, Spanish, Danish, Dutch, Swedish, German, Malay, Korean, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Russian, Turkish and Polish. Many other languages are being added each month, so watch this space.
Choose the language when creating the Interview and all the communications candidates receive will be in that language (including the emails, login form and the application itself).
We can’t translate the questions or interview details you enter, but you can easily create individual interviews covering any languages you need.
Benefits of Video Interviewing
By removing the scheduling and conducting of preliminary interviews (like initial phone interviews) you save time. Lots of time.
The number of early stage interviews will be reduced as you can combine a number of interviews into one. Your panel recruiters can focus in on relevant sections and therefore further reduce interviewing time.
Seeing someone talk through your questions and tests gives you a complete picture.
Make better decisions about who to bring forward and make better use of on-site time with the candidate by preparing tailored interviews based on their video responses.
Video Selection powered by Sonru is suitable for multiple interview types. Merge a technical test, culture fit and language test into one structured interview.
It’s easier to compare candidates when the interview process is uniform.
Providing a standardized, structured and transparent interview ensures fairness of process to all candidates.
The video responses provide clear interview records for review so there is no second-guessing from written notes or memory. Having everything on record also helps with internal and external audits.
