If you need to find or screen candidates who are not tied to the web, you are stuck.
Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
HarQen, an industry leader in interview and recruitment technology, has released the latest update to Voice Advantage. In addition to allowing candidates to interview utilizing the latest mobile devices and technology, Voice Advantage will now collect interviews from candidates lacking an internet connection.
“This changes the recruiting landscape in some important ways. Current talent pools for industries like light industrial, trucking, commercial, construction, and skilled trades include qualified people with limited access to the internet. Shoehorning them into existing digital processes is frustrating for recruiters and uncomfortable, bordering on inaccessible, for candidates. We solve both those problems,” said Ane Ohm, HarQen’s President. “This opens things to anyone with a phone and extends the convenience of recruitment technology beyond the web.”
Once a candidate enters Voice Advantage, recruiters can leverage the full spectrum of online review and collaboration tools to make finding the best candidates efficient and easy.
In addition to making access for candidates easier, this update addresses a lot of challenges in finding great job candidates. “Much investment in HR technology right now is around sourcing candidates. How can I find more people on LinkedIn and Facebook and Twitter? The problem is all those sourcing paths begin and end with the internet. If you need to find or screen candidates who are not tied to the web, you are stuck,” said Kevin Lindbergh, Director of Strategic Accounts at HarQen.
Any organization using Voice Advantage can have a recruitment campaign set up to accept Internet-Free candidates. Voice Advantage generates a toll free phone number for that campaign, and that number can be easily placed in a newspaper, on a bus, or a billboard. “Eliminating the limitation of internet access will make it easier to source candidates,” Lindbergh added.
Internet-Free functionality joins Voice Advantage’s existing video and audio interview tools, making it the most comprehensive interviewing suite on the market, allowing employers to engage a wider candidate pool than ever before.
HarQen was founded in 2007 and powers the award-winning Voice Advantage tool for video and phone interviews. Voice Advantage’s simple, mobile-friendly web interface allows job seekers to record interview responses at their convenience and allows recruiters to review candidates 10x faster, while eliminating scheduling hassles and courtesy interview headaches.
