Video interviewing ios app launched
The App is free to download for job seekers who have been invited to video interview by prospective employers who use The Needle's video interview platform. Applicants will now be able to record their interview responses on their iPad, iPhone and iPad Mini. Employers use The Needle to filter and screen job applicants at the early stages of the recruitment process.
This is an important development for The Needle in terms of their longer-term strategy to ensure job seekers and employers have access to this technology on their mobile devices.
Christine Tautari, Director & Co-founder of The Needle, commented on the importance of the launch, "More and more candidates are using their mobile device to search and apply for jobs. We absolutely need to cater for this market to ensure that employers can reach candidates using our technology across multiple devices. It's an exciting development."
The App is intuitive and easy to use. Candidates enter a code they are emailed by the recruiter and are taken through the job details and a careers video promoting the company, then into a practice question to get them ready for the interview. Speaker notes can also be added if the recruiter has included these in the set up, to help the job seeker prepare for the interview.
The Needle will also be showcasing the App at the CIPD HR Software & Recruitment show in June 2014.
