Think about the perfect candidate slipping through your fingers and into the welcoming arms of a competitor. It's not just a loss; it's a missed opportunity to push your creative boundaries.

  • Video Interviewing Platforms: Tools like HireVue or Zoom have become the casting calls of the digital age, allowing for efficient and flexible interviewing that keeps the process moving.
