Candidate FAQ

  • What is Hume?

    • In the shortest of summaries, Hume is an interview recording tool. It is an interview platform built on Zoom (Teams & Meets coming soon) to help run structured, high-quality interviews that can be replayed, shared and analyzed. It ensures every candidate gets a fair and effective hiring process.

  • How does Hume benefit me as a candidate?

    • Hume will help ensure that the interviewer and hiring team are focused on you, not on taking notes. It also ensures that interviews are structured and well thought out, giving you the best opportunity to showcase your relevant experience and qualifications.

      If you speak with multiple interviewers, Hume will help the hiring team coordinate and it’ll be less likely that the same questions are asked in multiple interviews.

      Hume will help interviewers recall important details about your experience and qualifications so they aren’t simply relying on their notes and recollections.

  • How will I know that my interview is recorded?

    • You will always know that the interview is being recorded. If the interview is being conducted over a video conference system, you will see a visual recording notification (like a flashing red recording button), hear an audio message, and/or see a recording notification appear when you join the video-conference.

  • Can I choose to interview without being recorded?

    • Yes, you can say at any time that you prefer to interview without being recorded.

  • Who will be able to see my interview?

    • Hume gives recruiting leaders at the hiring organization detailed controls to ensure only the right people have access to your interview. Only the talent team and the Hiring team can see your interview.

  • Is my interview secure?

    • Yes. Hume take the responsibility of securing your information very seriously and use a variety of industry-standard technologies and services to prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, use, and loss.

  • Will Hume make a judgement about my qualifications for the role?

    • No.

      While we believe technology, and especially AI/ML, have an important role to play in tools that are built to help organizations build the best possible teams - the tools should be built for guiding and assisting humans in their decision making, rather than making judgements themselves. That is one of the reasons for our name, Hume - the experience and the tools should be people centric and human.

      Hume is built to help people make better, less biased hiring decisions. As such Hume as a platform makes no judgements on whether you are the right candidate but instead help interviewers recall highlights from the interview.
