Kira Talent Software


 

Kira Talent is a Web-based, best-of-breed video interviewing platform that allows you to streamline your company’s hiring efforts. Start by recording the video questions that you want to ask, and specify criteria such as time limits to see how your candidates respond under pressure. From there, invite applicants to record their own responses via webcam. Review your candidates’ responses to quickly sort your potential hires into easily sortable “yes,” “maybe” and “no” categories.

If you’re not sure about your decision, you can easily invite co-workers to share comments and ratings directly on the candidate’s response page. Other features include different user account access levels, a practice suite for candidates to do mock interviews, welcoming and closing videos and the option to review and follow up with candidates directly from your iPhone via the Kira Reviewer app.

Kira Talent is available in English and French and has pricing tiers starting at $99 per month.

We found Kira Talent to be a great screening tool to quickly get a sense of certain candidates and narrow to a short-list in an efficient way. Instead of judging based on resumes alone, these video interviews were a great supplement to get us down to a shorter list of candidates worth interviewing in person.

When I first started using the software a couple of years ago there were a few minor glitches, but I believe they've all been fixed. They're also very responsive on any issues, so this didn't cause me any real problems.

Recommendations

I think it's worth thinking through how you will use Kira appropriately, given the roles you are hiring for. Since it is primarily meant for short mini-interviews (about 5 questions), you need to think about whether you will use Kira more as a screening tool for presentability and fit (less relevant for certain more technical/skill based roles), to test how they think (more relevant for skill based roles, but you may need to ignore the awkwardness that may result for some introverted dev/tech types who don't feel comfortable on video), or to test interest (e.g., questions about your company, the role, why they want it, etc.). I think Kira can be a very valuable tool when used thoughtfully. The natural tendency with a video based tool, however, is to judge based on overall poise, confidence, etc., which may not be as present (or relevant) for some of these more technical roles who bring a very different value to the company. That said, if you are aware of that potential bias going in and think about how you can use the questions to pre-screen candidates and narrow to a stronger short-list, it can certainly be effective.
