TalentDrive and InterActive Applicant's combined technology offers clients highly qualified resumes coupled with an on-demand audio, video and text screening component. This combined product offering is ground-breaking. It offers clients the ability to first source for resumes by utilizing TalentFilter's search of 11,000 web locations and advanced matching of resumes to job positions created by the user. Then an invite is sent to the job seeker requesting audio, webcam video and/or text answers to job-specific interview questions. InterActive Applicant(TM) allows employers to bring the resume to life by utilizing the multimedia screening capabilities. By offering these pre-recorded candidate responses, clients are able to view more applicants quickly and efficiently, allowing them to cost-effectively consider increased numbers of candidates (from both local and non-local geographies) and ensure only top talent is scheduled for first interviews, improving ROI for recruiting.
"We are very excited about this partnership. Combining improved sourcing and multimedia pre-screening technologies will create a new gold standard in recruitment efficiency. It's a powerful combination that will be adopted by clients eager to attract top talent and also save time and money in the process", Liam O'Leary, Director of Business Development, InterActive Applicant.
