Snapchat to launch new interview platform

The days of face-to-face interviews could well be coming to an end, as technology continues to affect how recruiters go about hiring prospective candidates.

It seems photo-sharing app Snapchat is the latest trend in digial hiring, offering employers a new platform for screening potential candidates.

Space150, a digital advertising agency, has announced that they will be using the app to recruit interns for their prestigious summer placement scheme.

The process is certainly more interactive than the average candidate interview, with the hopeful interns expected to complete several challenging tasks using their SnapChat account.

Each applicant must create a Snapchat story for Space150’s clients based on the 2020 theme – the list of clients in question include Sony, Nike, and Disney. SnapChat has over 100 million daily active users, which means that the competition for the 10 placements will be extremely competitive. 

The emerging use of Snapchat’s geofilters – a setting which records the time and location of each photo – has the ability to redesign the entire recruitment process. Recruiters can now see where their top talent lies, and has only to reach out to them to determine who the best fit for the role is.
