Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) May 26, 2010
The University of California at San Diego, one of the nation’s most accomplished research universities, has partnered with GreenJobInterview.com to bring live virtual interviews to fulfill some of its recruiting and staffing needs.
Recruiters at UC-San Diego, widely recognized for its local impact, national influence and global reach, wanted to give their hiring managers the best available options to find the right people for the job, as well as to stay on the cutting edge of recruitment technology.
“We want to be an employer keeping up with the times,” says UC-San Diego executive recruiter Janna Gilkison. “We don’t want to be the last one doing the most innovative recruitment trends.”
UC-San Diego has already experienced many benefits from using GreenJobInterview.com’s live virtual interviews. Among them:
- Cost Savings – As with most organizations, UC-San Diego’s recruiting and hiring needs were costly. With dozens of non-faculty positions open at any one time, the university receives hundreds of applications a day. GreenJobInterview.com allowed it to save money by reducing candidate travel expenses.
- Time Savings – UC-San Diego can quickly and easily conduct a first round of interviews for a position – sometimes involving four or five candidates – without the expense of arranging travel. Even local candidates can benefit. Because UC-San Diego is much like a small city, locating the correct building and finding parking can take a large part of a day. “With GreenJobInterview, they could simply plug in a webcam and be prepared to interview in about 10 minutes,” says Gilkison.
- Better Access to Candidates – Candidates for jobs at research institutions are sometimes in nontraditional locations, often another country, and connecting with them can be a challenge. Live virtual interviews alleviated much of that problem: UC-San Diego recruiters were even able to interview a candidate on a ship at sea.
UC-San Diego has received positive feedback from candidates and from its hiring managers. GreenJobInterview.com’s outstanding customer service helped ease many concerns. “GreenJobinterview’s reps are very friendly, and they’re willing to work with people at all levels of comfort with technology,” says Gilkison. “They open the door for you to ask what you might think is a silly question.”
