TalentRooster video technology enables clients to see and hear candidates prior to an interview
Online PR News – 05-October-2011 – – Technology executives expect IT hiring to continue in the fourth quarter of 2011. In the latest quarterly survey, 12 percent of CIOs said they plan to expand their IT departments. This is up two points from the previous quarter's projections.
Xperttech Inc., with headquarters in Woburn, Mass. - named one of the fastest-growing technology staffing and solutions companies by Inc. 500 - has seen this hiring boom in technology over the past 6 months first hand. As everyone, from small businesses to Fortune 5s, look for a way to hire the best of the best within their field, they are also looking for a quick and cost effective way to accomplish this. XpertTech has partnered with TalentRooster, an industry leader in video interviewing technology, to offer its platform to XpertTech’s expanding client base.
Employers lose many productive hours interviewing a parade of job seekers, only a few of whom end up being a good fit. In a recent book, The First 60 Seconds by Dan Burns, employers reported that the first 60 seconds of an interview are the most crucial and often can gauge whether or not they will make the hire. This technology allows employers to get that first crucial 60 seconds out of the way, without ever interviewing the job seeker in person. Technology is fast replacing the paper resume - in fact, many companies are only accepting job seekers on video. Having a video profile will enhance opportunities of talent and demonstrate that they are job seekers serious about their pursuit.
“If we are not saving our clients time and money while offering cutting edge solutions, then we are not doing our job,” says Joe Budzienski, executive vice president for XpertTech. “Video interviews are going to become an industry standard.”
