Digital Interviews Keep Getting Sweeter: HireVue Mobile App, Available for Android and iOS Devices, Honored as Human Resource Executive 2012 Top Product

Candidates and Employers Can Easily Connect With a Mobile On Demand Interview Without Typical Scheduling Delays to Ensure Jobs Are Filled Faster, Any Time and Anywhere

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwire - Oct 24, 2012) - Now employers can provide a convenient, one-of-a-kind job interview experience for candidates anywhere in the world, at any time, while on their favorite mobile device. HireVue, the leading global providers of an amazing new way to interview -- on demand -- was honored as a Human Resource Executive 2012 Top Product winner for the world's first mobile digital interviewing app, HireVue Mobile App™ available for Android™ as well as iPhone® and iPad®.

Nielsen's latest State of Mobile report shows that smartphone ownership has more than doubled in the past two years. With more than 400 million Android devices currently being used and about 1 million new devices activated each day, and 43 million mobile Apple devices sold in the last quarter alone, the Mobile App enables employers to reach an even larger and more diverse candidate pool around the world, including individuals who may not have regular access to desktops and laptops.

HireVue's unique digital interviewing app was originally introduced to businesses and job candidates on the iOS platform in February 2012 and became available for the Android platform in June 2012. Time-shifting and place-shifting the interview experience, it is the only mobile app that enables job seekers to complete HireVue's innovative video-based On Demand Interviews™ from a mobile device.

When a candidate is selected for a digital interview or completes an interview through OpenVue™, HireVue's social solution, he or she simply accesses the app from their interview invite email and completes the interview at any time, anywhere using the built-in camera and microphone of their favorite mobile device. Candidates can also learn more about the organization by watching employment branding videos, introductions and thank you videos from the hiring manager and recruiting team.

"Mobile and video are a major part of the way companies, and potential candidates, conduct business and make decisions every day; it was only natural that we bring these advancements to the recruiting process," said David Bradford, CEO of HireVue. "Imagine completing a job interview from your smartphone on your lunch break or after the kids have gone to bed. With HireVue Mobile App, you can."

He continued, "By offering HireVue Mobile App to both iOS and Android users, our clients are empowered to engage the right candidates quickly, before their competition does, and provide the kind of convenient and truly unique candidate experience that strengthens employment brand -- no matter where they're located, what their schedule is, or what device they use."

HireVue's experts will be available to share details at the HR Tech Europe Conference in Amsterdam on October 25 - 26, 2012. Attendees can stop by the HireVue Digital Lounge -- located just off the main Expo Hall -- for a demo, details or to recharge.
