Big data has been around for many years making its way to new industries. Relevant data about anything and everything can help you take proactive decisions and plan for the future. Recruitment will see an increase in big data and analytics. Software applications are already in the works for recruitment analytics to help provide insight to HR recruiters.
Due to a global recruitment market it is impossible at times for a candidate to be physically present for an interview if it is on a different continent or country. This is why video interviews are now growing in popularity by different countries. Mostly companies opt for Skype but there are other video interview tools. This technology is widely used by universities to conduct interviews with foreign candidates.
