+ About the Alaant Advisor
The Alaant Advisor is our column focused on all things going on in the world of recruiting, job placement, and search. Think of it as your weekly briefing—a handy, quick guide to what's going on.

Here's what's happening this week:

Last Week’s QOTW Poll Results:

Q: Do you use one way video interview technology to screen applicants?

Yes – 32%

No – 47%

What is one way video tech? - 21%

One way video interviews sound like a great way to save time.  Send your applicants some questions and have them record their answers- easy right?  Sure for you, but there are many pitfalls to this type of screening, including disengagement from the candidate, discrimination and don’t forget the added anxiety and stress you could be causing that applicant. Recruiting is not transactional, keep the human touch and minimize the tech. Need more guidance? The experts at Alaant are here for you. Reach out today!
