As video interviewing gains more traction in hiring and talent acquisition, there is an increasingly-definitive line between video conference chat tools (like Skype, Zoom, etc.) and a purpose-built video interviewing solution for hiring (like Montage). This line can often be blurred since some of the technologies are relatively new. I want to give you a clear definition of “purpose-built,” and why it is paramount when it comes to choosing your direction for video interviewing.
Purpose-built means any product or service that was created specifically to serve an end use or purpose. Montage’s video interviewing solution has been purpose-built to transform the world of hiring and talent acquisition.
Let’s look at an example: You are looking for a transportation method to get back and forth from work. Knowing that you have to drive almost exclusively on the highway means you need a vehicle purpose-built to handle those conditions. You certainly could purchase a pair of rollerblades, which can get you to your destination too, but how might they perform on the interstate? To make your ride to work both effective, efficient, and safe you would choose a car or truck, purpose-built to drive on the highway. Additionally, you expect more than just an arrival at work. You also want to get there as quickly as possible, looking professionally groomed and dressed, and let’s throw in great gas mileage too. This further helps you determine what vehicle is best for you (though I don’t think a car can make your hair look better!). It is not dissimilar to trying to hammer a square peg into a round hole.
As illustrated in the example above, a purpose-built product or service is beneficial outside of being the right tool for the job. Listed below are several more reasons why a purpose-built video interview solution is paramount:
Montage understands the complexities of the hiring process and created a video interviewing platform that is purpose-built for hiring and talent acquisition. Montage’s video interviewing solution helps recruiters and hiring managers more effectively and efficiently engage and hire top talent.
