Wedge – How To Objectively Grade A Video Interview with Matt Baxter
Today we have a wonderful guest, Matt Baxter from Wedge. We’re going to be talking about how you can objectively grade a video interview. This should be a fantastic conversation because I think people know how to do regular interviews, but maybe not video interviews. Let’s get to it.
Matt Baxter is the CEO of Wedge. He’s been an entrepreneur from a young age, launching a lawncare business prior to his entry into the talent acquisition/tech world. Wedge was an idea on a napkin, a SAAS product that helps companies leverage video interviewing and video screening in their hiring process.
If someone has never done a video interview before, what is your advice? Determine the 3-5 questions you want to ask the candidate. Err on the side of behavioral and soft skills/cultural fit. Also, do you want to give the candidate more than one shot to record their video?
For the rest of his advice, you’ll have to tune in!
Super relevant and you might learn something new. As always, comments are welcome.
