I'm not a recruitment professional but I'm going to interview 10+ candidates in a week or so for my small business (i.e. no budget to hire a professional recruiter). It occurred to me that I could quite easily videtotape each interview which would enable me to subsequently review the better candidate's performances, to clarify their answers and to reduce the effects of my own tiredness/inexperience/bias.
I am, however, concerned about other pitfalls or issues that I may not have thought of, from Data Protection to the effect on the interviewees to simple stuff like, what do I do if I run out of tape or the power goes?
Does anyone have any thoughts on this idea, or experience of the scenario? All advice gratefully received... thank you.
