7 Tips for Employers Navigating Remote Recruitment

Hiring experts explain how companies should approach recruitment when employers and candidates are working remotely.

First Impressions Still Matter

When demand is high for specific talent, companies "don't have the luxury of making mistakes," Brocaglia says. She advises being especially cognizant of how candidates act in video interviews.

"It's much more difficult, in some ways, to interview people just virtually," she explains.

While it's important for a candidate to be focused, it's equally important for a hiring manager to give these conversations their undivided attention. Factors like body language and the subtleties of someone's behavior may fly under the radar. Pay attention to specifics: How comfortably are they answering the questions? Are they focused? Are they using a cheat sheet? Are they speaking candidly about their roles and responsibilities?

First impressions matter as much online as they do in person, Drew says. Hiring managers should note whether a candidate is dressed professionally and in a quiet space. Personality usually also comes through on video, and employers should be able to get a sense of someone's passion for technology and the work and projects they've accomplished. This can help people stand out.

"You can convey the passion and deep knowledge of what you're into pretty well by articulating it ... those things still translate in both phone and video interviews," Drew explains. "[Companies] have the opportunity to really understand and gauge how well and how articulate someone can speak to their background and experience."

One of the biggest things he looks for in a video interview is a candidate who can speak with passion about their background and experience, and what they want to do moving forward.
