How Interviewing Software Saves School Districts Time and Money

School district recruiters know that they need to make every second and cent count when it comes to hiring new teachers, especially when the district’s budget is tight. Just one bad hire can cost a district up to 2.5 times the teacher’s salary after recruiting, replacement and onboarding expenses.

Interviewing software helps school districts save time and money in a number of ways:

  • Complete interviews faster: According to LinkedIn research, a principal can review 100 one-way video interviews in the same amount of time it takes to complete 15 phone screen interviews. And the information gleaned from digital interviews reduced the average time recruiters spent reviewing applications from five hours per candidate to two hours per candidate.
  • Schedule interviews faster: Do you and your hiring team spend hours just on the tedious back-and-forth of scheduling interviews with teachers? Automated interview scheduling helps you eliminate those tedious emails and calls. Instead, you can simply send automated invites that link with your own calendar, so that candidates can choose a time when both of you are available. 
  • Save time and money on travel costs: With live two-way video interviews, you can interview teachers from other districts, states or even countries, while saving time and money on travel costs.
  • Gain a leg up over competitors: With interviewing solutions, school districts and principals can screen and identify top talent in a more timely manner and offer jobs to the best teachers before competing districts complete their interviewing process.
