What is Live Interviewing by Criteria?

Criteria’s Live Interviewing solution can be used alongside any interview you conduct, whether in-person, over the phone, or over video.

During a live interview, your hiring managers and interviewers can view all the questions in order, access evaluation guides, and provide ratings and comments. After an interview is complete, the results are easy to review so that your team can make a final decision.

The easiest part? If you use a video tool like Zoom or Skype to conduct video interviews, you can keep using it! Just pull up Criteria’s Live Interviewing tool whenever you are conducting a video interview, and use it alongside your existing technology.

Build a structured interview in minutes

Select from a library of interview questions and set up your own templates to target job-related competencies and behaviors that are critical to the success of your roles. Or add your own questions specific to your unique job requirements.

Structured Interviews Lead to Better Talent Decisions

Structured interviews are two times more predictive of job success than unstructured interviews. A structured interview involves asking the same job-related questions to every candidate, in the same order, with the same evaluators, and then evaluating each of the candidate’s responses with an anchored rating scale.

The result is an interview that quickly gets to the heart of a candidate’s job-related skills and abilities, while reducing unconscious bias and leading to better quality of hire across the board.

Less Bias. Better Outcomes.

Structured interviews are more objective, more fair, less prone to bias, and have less adverse impact than unstructured interviews. This is because structured interviews level the playing field for all candidates by allowing every candidate to answer the same questions.

A Better Experience for Candidates

Impress your candidates with a fair, objective, and organized interviewing process. Candidate satisfaction is higher when candidates know they are being assessed fairly and objectively, which leads to lower candidate drop-off rates, better candidate experience, and a boost to your employer brand.

Easy to Use. Easy to Adopt.

With Live Interviewing, you can quickly build structured interviews that are highly repeatable and scalable. This comes in handy when rolling out a structured interviewing process across teams and departments. The platform takes the burden off of hiring managers and interviewers by giving them ready-made tools to follow a structured process, provide evaluations, and review results.
