Save Time and Money
The GreenJobInterview live virtual interview solution saves time, money and resources by making the interview process easy, effective and efficient. Live virtual interviews significantly reduce or eliminate the need for domestic and international travel, save hours on the recruitment process and can typically be conducted for less than $130 per hour.
The GreenJobInterview solution paves a more efficient path to hiring – eligible candidates can be met virtually early on in the hiring process. Weeks of waiting for scheduled travel and in-person interviews are shortened or eliminated, and the length of time-to-hire is significantly reduced.
Increase the Candidate Pool
By offering the chance to interview virtually, hiring organizations encourage more qualified candidates to apply. Interviewing candidates in this fashion increases an employer’s opportunity to make the right hire for an open position. In addition, the positive environmental impact of live virtual interviews may help attract and retain Gen Y talent.
Improve the Candidate Experience
With the ability to meet from virtually anywhere with a computer, a candidate can be comfortable, relaxed and avoid typical travel-related inconveniences while receiving superior customer and tech support. By removing the need for travel and out-of-pocket expense, the hiring organization shows that they’re respectful of the candidate’s time and work-life balance.
Advance Employment Branding
Live virtual interviews provide an opportunity for hiring organizations to position their brand as progressive, innovative and environmentally conscious. Clients can customize or private label their specific virtual interview websites with company logo, color scheme, and messaging. Links and buttons displayed on a custom-branded site can direct candidates to the company’s career site.

GreenJobInterview’s live virtual interview solution reduces a hiring organization’s impact on the environment by nearly eliminating the need for candidate travel.
