Waco, TX – (January 29, 2014) – InterviewStream, the originator of online interviewing, has been named the exclusive video interviewing partner for the second iteration of the Digital Creative Job Market presented by South by Southwest (SXSW). The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., March 6-7 at the Austin Convention Center.
As part of their participation in the job market, employers will have complimentary access to InterviewStream’s video interviewing platform to screen and easily create a digital pool of candidates for further evaluation following the event. InterviewStream will offer employers full training in pre-recorded video interviewing, in addition to a custom branded portal featuring the organization’s respective logo and color scheme.
“It became apparent that the event needed a service to help recruiters collect candidate information,” said Val Link, SXSW account executive. “After reviewing InterviewStream’s suite of tools, I knew I’d found the solution.”
InterviewStream will set up interviewing booths so candidates can complete their video interviews on-site, but candidates also have the option to respond to pre-recorded questions at their own convenience through a dedicated URL. Candidates may conduct interviews using a PC, laptop, smart phone or tablet device, and responses may be viewed and evaluated by employers from any Internet-connected device.
“This is a great opportunity for employers to not only try InterviewStream, but also experience the benefits of video interviewing,” said Randy Bitting, InterviewStream founder and chief innovation officer. “From college career fairs to global corporations, we’ve been connecting cutting-edge employers with innovative candidates since 2003, so our partnership with SXSW was a natural fit.”
As part of the SXSW Interactive Festival, the Digital Creative Job Market allows employers to conveniently meet with creative and innovative thinkers who stay current with the latest digital trends. The event is free and open to the public.
InterviewStream helps companies generate great candidate experiences and remarkable returns through Web-based video screening, interviewing and preparation. InterviewStream pioneered the category in 2003, and today more than 5 million users have access to InterviewStream products to transform the most-demanding hiring environments and perfect the practice of video interviewing. InterviewStream is part of a growing suite of video apps that go beyond hiring and include: RolePlayPRO for training and performance management, and ivMessage for one-way messaging.
