Online Interview and Remote Work: 7 Best Video Interview Tools

The demand for online interview procedures and, the urgent requirement to work remotely from home combined with an urgent need to expand telemedicine services thanks to COVID-19 has made video conferencing software an important tool.

#StayHome is the global movement of self-isolation in order to flatten the curve of COVID-19. Front-line workers like nurses, doctors, and other healthcare staff provide essential services and have no choice but to work their shifts.

The general public needs to stay home. Thankfully remote interviewing is the modern way of hiring thanks to video software. For those needing to work at home, here are the 7 best video interview software tools.

Spark Hire

Spark Hire has over 5,000 customers from big brands like IKEA to medium-sized medical practises. They offer both recorded and live video interview solutions at a very reasonable price point.

Some of their key features include rejection management, social media tagging, automated scheduling, and a built-in rating system.


Skype is known globally as a free video-conferencing service. It has basic features that suit bother students and small to medium-sized businesses. 

Unfortunately, you can’t record interviews, or record content to be sent out unless you install an external recording plugin.


VidCruiter abolished the traditional interview process when they began offering their video platform for interviews. 

Now, HR teams can set up a reliable, well-structured, interview procedure that streamlines the onboarding process.

While they specialize in video interviewing, they also offer automatic reference checking and structured interviews.


Zoom is a video conferencing platform that wasn’t exactly designed for online interviews. But the price is on-point. 

Another cool feature of Zoom is that you can save your interviews/ meetings as mp4 files.

Skype and Zoom may be comparable on their pricepoint, but Zoom has a focus on providing a premium video conferencing experience.


Hire Vue marriages AI and human knowledge. This relationship between machines and humans provides a better method for hiring experienced candidates. 

Say goodbye to physical screening and enhance your hiring process by utilizing video software and AI. The tools HireVue offers gives you the insights you need to find the best talent.

Google Hangouts

Google Hangouts is a free app that is a phenomenal online interview tool. Because of its on-air toggle, you can record videos. Just remember, to switch your video to private.

However, if you are larger practise looking to scale up your telemedicine service and need to hire several medical professionals, Google Hangouts is not the most ideal solution on this list.

In fact, the tools listed above were designed to do the opposite. They are made to streamline and enhance the online interviewing process via recorded and live videos.

Telehealth has been around for quite some time, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic,ic, we are officially at the tipping point.
