Kira Talent to Showcase Talent Assessment Platform at GMAC Asia Pacific and NYGAP Conferences in November

Company to Demonstrate How Its Platform, Kira Academic, Has Helped Schools Across the Globe Improve the Admissions Process

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Nov 2, 2015) - Kira Talent, the company behind Kira Academic, the online video interviewing and talent assessment platform for universities and colleges, will sponsor the GMAC Asia Pacific Conference (Nov. 2-3, 2015) and NYGAP Conference (Nov. 13, 2015). The company will offer insight into how schools can use the technology to better assess their applicants and make smarter admissions decisions.

Attendees will see live demos of the Kira platform and learn how it can be used to identify the applicants with the skills needed to succeed in their program and in the workplace. The Kira team hopes that by speaking with attendees at these conferences, it will have the opportunity to help more schools improve the efficacy of the admissions process. The Kira platform has been adopted by schools worldwide, including Yale, Notre Dame, Northwestern, University of Toronto, and University of South Australia.

"The schools who are already using Kira Academic agree that the platform helps them make more informed admissions decisions," said Craig Morantz, CEO of Kira Talent. "We're looking forward to showing it to attendees at GMAC Asia Pacific and NYGAP, and showcasing the platform's ability to bring students to life through video, offering admissions teams an authentic glimpse at the student behind the application."

Kira Academic is the only talent assessment platform that offers schools a robust view of their applicants by helping them gauge skills not easily determined by test scores or grades. By requiring students to demonstrate verbal communication and presentation skills via timed video responses, the Kira Academic platform assists admissions teams in identifying applicants who can think on their feet and contribute to classroom discussions. Kira's timed video applications also safeguard schools against common issues like application fraud and reviewer bias.

In addition to exploring the Kira Academic platform, conference attendees will learn more about the free resources available on Kira's website, including eBooks, webinars with higher education experts, and quizzes to determine how students might score on SAT and GMAT tests.
