EIN News:

Clients able to see and hear candidates before committing to an interview, resulting in huge savings of time and money.

As the employment market continues to improve, recruiters and human resource professionals are utilizing powerful new technologies to expedite the age old recruiting process. Traditionally companies have a need and place ads on job boards, local media and company websites, which draw hundreds of responses – most of which are not qualified. Resumes are sourced; phone screens conducted and ultimately first interviews are extended.

The average length of a first interview is forty minutes and statistics show most hiring managers know within ninety seconds whether or not they will hire a candidate. Less than five percent of those that receive a first interview will be extended an offer for employment.

Spherion franchise owners, Scott and Eric Overmyer, found a way to use technology and improve these grim statistics. Beginning in April, Spherion will begin utilizing TalentRooster video technology to market their candidates to local businesses.
