Compact Interview AppExciting times – We’re launching a new mobile app at the CIPD Recruitment Exhibition which will provide candidates with a slicker experience using familiar technology.

Our new mobile app should improve recruitment decisions and enhance user experience by allowing candidates to record responses to interview questions using mobile technology.

As employers increasingly embrace video interviewing as a significant time-saving recruitment tool, Compact Interview helps improve candidates’ experience by eliminating the need for scheduling phone screening and first round interviews. Candidates are more relaxed recording their responses to interview questions using familiar mobile technology, such as iPads and iPhones.

In a study of 5,000 business owners in the UK, 85% of employers rated soft skills as the most important quality when hiring new staff. Video interviews can provide richer insight into a candidate’s qualities, giving hiring managers extra confidence when selecting the best talent for face-to-face interviews.

With HR Zone reporting 70% of job seekers are now using smartphones to actively look for jobs, hiring managers realise they must provide a seamless experience in order to attract talent.

Compact Interview will be exhibiting at Stand R87 at the CIPD Recruitment Exhibition at London Olympia on 19-20 June 2013.
