Transitioning to remote recruitment with Zoho Recruit

Remote hiring | Zoho Recruit

As a gesture of gratitude to all the agencies and recruiters who are helping those affected by the COVID-19 outbreak to find jobs — We, at Zoho Recruit are committed to supporting you by making virtual recruitment as accessible as possible. We will be rolling out free video credits until the end of June 2020. Your contribution in sustaining great teams and enabling companies to continue operating is invaluable. 

Zoho Recruit has integrated with Zoho Meeting to make this video interface possible, to help you enable positive candidate experiences and engage with clients efficiently, even while recruiting remotely. Zoho Recruit’s Video Interview lets us, recruiters, present candidates with a standardized questionnaire to which they can prerecord their answers. This allows recruiters to analyze and rate candidate responses at their convenience. This is especially useful when evaluating candidates in different time zones as the recruiter, or when your hiring teams are dispersed. Initially priced at $10/job/unlimited video slots, we are now waiving off this fee.

We understand that uncertainty is not a great state of mind to be in. Several business segments including hospitality, travel, food, and e-commerce have been severely impacted by the ongoing crisis. More than ever, being a recruiter comes with a substantial amount of pressure and responsibility. The silver lining? Not every industry has frozen their hiring efforts, and in some cases, the demand for talent is higher than ever.

Remote jobs in demand 

A list released by New Enterprise Associates shows over 234 startups in their database are looking to hire across areas like engineering, sales, design, and marketing. Furthermore, over 180 startups are hiring for enterprise tech, consumer tech, and healthcare.

A recent Forbes article mentioned, “Bond,, Gitlab, HealthVerity,, and Miro each have over 20 open jobs. 14 of the 85 enterprise tech startups have openings for permanent remote positions.” This shows a clear shift in the global hiring mindset: remote work that not only sees workers and the economy through this crisis, but also for the future beyond COVID-19.
