At Pulse Nursing at Home, we want to make the recruitment process as simple and stress-free as possible for those joining us. With that in mind, we’ve removed the hassle and pressure of face-to-face interviews by using HireVue, our video interviewing platform.
How does HireVue work?
Video interviewing with HireVue is done online, so all you will need is an internet connection and a device with a camera, such as a laptop, tablet, smartphone or computer with a webcam.
Your Pulse Nursing at Home consultant will provide you with a link to a video containing a series of pre-recorded questions. You will record your responses to these questions and send them back to us. This will then be reviewed by one of our nurse practitioners, who will be looking for the exact same things that an interviewer would in a face-to-face interview.
Why do we use HireVue?
We know that video interviewing may seem daunting at first, but it doesn’t need to be. For nursing and healthcare assistant jobs, video interviews offer a range of benefits.
Reduce travel: no more setting off three hours early to avoid traffic or turning up soaking wet from the rain, your video interview can be completed from the comfort of your own home. This saves you both time and money!
More convenient: when you’re looking for a new nursing job while still working, it can be difficult to find time to fit in interviews. When you’ve just finished a night shift, the last thing you want to do is walk into an interview at 9am! With video interviewing, you can complete your interview whenever and wherever you like.
Less pressure: interviews can be scary, but HireVue can help relieve some of the pressure. Rather than worrying the interviewer can smell the cheese and onion sandwich you had for lunch, videos can be completed on your own in an environment you feel more comfortable in. If you need to take a break in between questions that is absolutely fine, and if you’re not happy with one of your answers you have the chance to re-record.
Fairer: with face-to-face interviews, your interviewer needs to listen to what you’re saying, make notes and remember the next question they want to ask you and then remember it all again after the interview. With HireVue, every applicant for a nursing job receives the same questions and the reviewer has more time (and less distractions) when considering your answers so you can be confident that you have been given your best chance for success.
If you have any questions about completing your HireVue then don’t hesitate to ask your consultant, they’ve definitely heard it before! If you’ve not yet applied for a job with Pulse Nursing at Home, then take a look at our vacancies here!
