Author: David B. Weisenfeld, XpertHR Legal Editor
Video may have killed the radio star as the hit early '80s song says, but it need not be feared when it comes to job interviews. In fact, more and more employers are turning to video job interviews as a means of evaluating prospective employees. A recent survey of HR managers showed that more than 60 percent now conduct video interviews, up from a mere 14 percent in 2011.

But with hiring a key component of an organization's success, it is critical for employers choosing to embrace this technology to use it effectively.
