WACO and AUSTIN, Texas – May 23, 2013 – InterviewStream, Inc., the global pioneer in online video interviewing solutions and CSO Research, Inc., the global leader in campus career center software, today formed a new partnership that will provide college career centers a powerful set of preparation and research tools.
Announced at the CSO 2013 Training and Networking Conference in Austin, the integration of InterviewStream’s online video practice tools with CSO’s career center software creates a blended solution of resources and services for both students and employers.
CSO’s products enable employers to connect with colleges and universities, recruit qualified students and graduates, and assess the success of their efforts, while InterviewStream’s isPrep platform provides access to award-winning online video practice interviewing, as well as webinars and expert interviewing tips.
“InterviewStream and CSO share a vision for connecting students and employers through college career centers,” said Kevin Wilson, president & chief operating officer of CSO Research. “This partnership will help students improve their interviewing skills and make it easier for students and employers to connect through career centers.”
According to research by Interview Success Formula, 60 percent of hiring managers now conduct video interviews. With this high adoption of video technology in the hiring process, students need to be prepared not only for the in-person interview, but also the video interview. InterviewStream’s isPrep platform adds to CSO’s rich toolset by helping employers connect with better-prepared and qualified students.
“We are very excited about integrating our video interview solution with CSO Research,” said Randy Bitting, InterviewStream’s founder and chief innovation officer. “This is the first partnership of its kind, and it’s going to deliver a comprehensive solution that will equally benefit career centers, students, and employers.”
