As employers continue to adopt new technology to streamline their hiring, they’re becoming more open to video interviews.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) December 08, 2011
Resfly, a service that publishes employers’ jobs to the web’s most popular job boards and social networks, today announces a new video interview feature allowing hiring managers to screen their candidates via webcam as they apply to jobs.
Resfly’s announcement reflects a trend of webcam usage not only in the hiring industry, but also in everyday interaction. With social networks like Facebook introducing Skype-powered video chat and Google+ introducing “Hangouts”, it is clear webcam usage will only increase.
“This technology offers employers a glimpse of a potential hire that paper can never replicate,” said Asim Baig, president of Resfly. “As employers continue to adopt new technology to streamline their hiring, they’re becoming more open to video interviews.”
“Our team has a long tradition of being at the cutting edge of technology as it meets hiring,” said project manager Tony Sternberg. “We’re continuing that tradition with Resfly. The industry is ripe for innovation and we see lots of opportunity ahead.”
Video interviews will be made available on all Resfly pricing plans at no additional cost and can be optionally added to any new or existing job questionnaire. Users may ask candidates to answer up to three video questions per job, each up to one minute long. Resfly is currently offering a 5-day free trial for users to test their service.
