“As the search for talent becomes more competitive, there’s no reason why employers should be limited to their geographic location. The power of video lies in its ability to make international recruiting both simple and cost effective.” Josh Tolan CEO
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 22, 2012
Job seekers and employers can now connect across the globe as Spark Hire (http://www.sparkhire.com) opens their video resume and interviewing site for international use. Companies no longer have to worry about finding talent in their own backyard. The international expansion marks a big step in Spark Hire’s mission of connecting employers and candidates for a perfect fit.
“Spark Hire opened up to international recruiting due to a large volume of interest from companies all over the world,” CEO Josh Tolan said. “As the search for talent becomes more competitive, there’s no reason why employers should be limited to their geographic location. The power of video lies in its ability to make international recruiting both simple and cost effective.”
The international expansion is just the latest and most exciting change as Spark Hire continues to grow. The site is constantly sourcing feedback to improve users’ experiences. Spark Hire’s newly incorporated “Interview Me” button on job seeker profiles will allow employers to instantly request an interview.
“We’ve streamlined the process to make things simpler for both job seekers and hiring managers,” Tolan said. “Now employers are only one click away from finding the perfect candidate.”
These interview requests go to a designated folder where job seekers can either reject or accept the offers. Once accepted, employers get an immediate email notification, making the process quick and simple.
“Spark Hire is always looking for new ways to evolve and grow,” Tolan said. “The mission statement of our company is to make the hiring process easier. Now companies from all over the world can enjoy the convenience of online video interviewing.”
