Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 30, 2012
Job seekers and employers now have access to instant video job resources on their iPhones via Spark Hire’s (http://www.sparkhire.com) new free mobile application. For the first time, job seekers can record a video resume in the form of a Spark Hire Profile Video or take part in a video interview, all from their mobile devices.
“By utilizing the app, both employers and job seekers are able to save time and money by using their smartphone to communicate,” said Josh Tolan, Spark Hire CEO. “In just the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, Apple sold 37.04 million iPhones. Employers and job seekers already own the phones, so we’re enhancing the hiring process by allowing them to use the phone they already have to connect.”
The app complements the current Spark Hire platform, making it easy for job seekers and employers to interact while on the go. Aside from the ability to record and interview right from your iPhone, job seekers are able to manage their Spark Hire account, favorite job listings, receive alerts to jobs that match their selected criteria, and interact with employers from their Spark Hire inbox.
“Just had an amazing video interview at SparkHire.com - I'm a tech guy, but the fact that I did it all from my iPhone amazes me,” said job seeker David Walls on Twitter.
Employers also are able to use their Apple device to manage their company profile, view their job posts, playback video interviews, and communicate with job seekers.
“We’re always looking for ways to be more efficient and utilize the technology we so heavily rely upon in our lives,” said Tolan. “The Spark Hire app, now in beta, allows you to hold your next job or top candidate right in your hands.”
