In today’s economy, standing apart from the competition is crucial, and we offer job seekers a great outlet to accomplish this
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 05, 2012
Spark Hire (http://sparkhire.com), both a video job board and online interviewing platform that gives companies a quicker, easier, and cost effective way to acquire talented professionals, continues to add to its already wide array of beneficial features. Currently, most companies invest a significant amount of time and resources in reviewing hundreds of resumes, followed up with the preliminary first round interview. Spark Hire aims to change all that with a more simplified approach via its online video platform which is currently in a free beta.
“In today’s economy, standing apart from the competition is crucial, and we offer job seekers a great outlet to accomplish this,” says Josh Tolan, CEO of Spark Hire. “And companies are now able to narrow their qualified applicant pools in a much faster and cost-effective fashion.”
In addition to features such as the Profile Video, a self-directed video recorded via webcam by job seekers, Spark Hire has recently released the following features:
- Job Post Enhancement: Employers now have the option to make their jobs posted on Spark Hire public. Employers receive a personalized link which they can share on other job boards and social networks for maximum visibility. The job posts are indexed in all major search engines with SEO-friendly URLs.
- Spotlight Interview Templates: Companies now are able to save their Spotlight Interview questions for future use. This saves the company time as they are able to quickly populate an interview with previous questions.
Additional enhancements that Spark Hire users can utilize include a mobile detection feature that allows video files to automatically convert to a compatible format for their device. As well as, management tools that allow for ease in organization and syncing of an employer’s interviews and preferred day-to-day calendar.
“Our goal is to provide the best platform possible,” explains Tolan. “Our fast-growing programming team is constantly working on additional enhancements that will further streamline the hiring process and exceed hiring needs.”
