HireVue: Changing the Hiring Experience

HireVue (www.HireVue.com), is a fast-growing company based in Draper, UT that is changing the way companies interview new talent with its digital  interviewing platform.  Their technology allows companies to dramatically improve the speed and efficiency of the hiring process while improving the overall quality of their hiring.  HireVue recently announced securing an additional $22 Million in funding. Chip Luman (@cluman), COO at HireVue, took some time to chat with Ascent Advisor (@AscentAdvisor.) Peter Wride – Ascent Advisor:  HireVue makes the bold assertion that everyone from the CEO down to the candidate is going to love this product.  What makes HireVue unique and special? Chip Luman:  For a hiring manager, whether a busy executive, or an even busier front line manager, we save them valuable time. Imagine you have 10-12 direct reports to manage and you also have to spend time interviewing someone new for your team.  The old approach would be to work with an HR partner to schedule interviews and then try and fit in several candidates for phone calls while still doing your day job. Our platform allows candidates to complete an interview via computer or mobile when it is convenient for them and managers to do the same. All the candidates are provided the same questions.  That’s an apples-to-apples comparison of the skills you’re looking for and it allows you to make better quality decisions. You can also end an interview after 5 minutes if the candidate is not qualified. You can’t do that when you are on the phone or sitting across from them. Managers can also use our live interview for the next step...
