Preguntas frecuentes

How does Cliptakes support recruitment?

Cliptakes allows your hiring managers to accept video interviews from candidates without any input. Hiring managers can easily watch a video introduction for a candidate and make a snappy assessment, saving them time.

Recorded video interviews allow your team to identify the strongest and best-suited applicants for their active vacancies, without wasting unnecessary time conducting in person interviews.

In addition, video interviews offer a unique way to set candidates apart from the competition. If a client is impressed with a candidate from watching their video, chances are they will get selected to interview first.

How can I watch completed video interviews?

Once a candidate completes their interview, you will be emailed a link to watch their video. You are also able to easily embed the video into a WordPress page should you wish to showcase the video on your own website.

Videos can be emailed directly to the requesting consultant if required.

Do I need to edit videos?

No. You do not need to edit any of your received videos. Video answers are combined with your set questions to create a ready to watch video interview.

Is Cliptakes used for recruitment purposes only?

No. Cliptakes is increasingly being used for a wide range of purposes. If you think it may be the solution you are looking for, sign-up for a FREE account here.

This proved an excellent tool for the recruitment process of our new CEO. It was a great insight into the candidates and gave them an additional challenge to respond to. It also helped us share with remote members of the team, and the wider team, the people who were in the running, and therefore gather feedback from the larger teams on presentation and characteristics. Service wise, the service I received was outstanding. Having an urgent challenge which wasn’t down to the plug in, they helped solve my problem outside of regular hours. 100% recommend.

Having been in the industry myself, I can say this plugin works very well. The team is super responsive and supportive. They also updated the plugin to meet my specific needs. I can definitely say this is one of the best plugins out there. With Cliptakes, you do not need an API or other hassle to interview someone. It is easy very to use and customise. I did all the work by myself in a matter of 2-3 hours.

Using video interviews helped me so much in building my recruitment business (In Reach Recruitment), and Cliptakes makes it so easy – both for me and the candidate! Having the ability to send CVs alongside a one-way video interview to hiring managers is leading to quicker placements. Love that I can do this on my own website instead of using a 3rd party site!

We are a recruitment company that have been using Cliptakes for several weeks now. Cliptakes works really well and has transformed the way in which we work. Previously, we would send CVs to our clients, we now are able to bring our candidates to life using pre-recorded interviews. Unlike other products we have tried, Cliptakes does not need any on-going input from us, we simply send our candidate a link to their video interview, where they answer our pre-set questions in their own time. Once they have completed their recording they simply click submit and the professionally edited video comes directly to our inbox and can be instantly forwarded on to our clients. Would definitely recommend. Joe Birchenall Director
