One-way asynchronous interview | PART OF ALTUS SUITE

What is Snapshot?

When you would like to get to know your applicants better before inviting them to an interview or are presented with conflicting information in their application, Snapshot can help.

This one-way video interview gives you an opportunity to learn more about your applicants’ communication skills, motivation and interest in the profession. We provide implicit bias training, a rating scale and rubric to help you and your team review applicant responses as objectively as possible.

Snapshot logo

Preview a subset of your applicants’ communications skills before inviting them to interview or use Snapshot to help break a tie when deciding between those applicants you may be on the fence with for the last few spots in your program.

Each unique assessment focuses on different competencies and attributes, but they work together to paint a more complete picture of your applicants.
