Bethlehem, PA (PRWEB) December 02, 2011 Career Centers in top Colleges and Universities around the country, and around the globe, are adopting InterviewSteam’s proprietary video interviewing solutions to assist students with practicing and perfecting their interviewing skills. “It’s definitely been a great year for us in the campus marketplace,” said Katherine West, University Account Manager. When asked what she contributed the success to, she replied, “We have the most comprehensive and dynamic interviewing tool available and career centers realize they need more web-based tools to help prepare students for in-person and online video interviews with employers.”
With close to 400 campuses currently using InterviewStream, some of the more recent schools that have come on-board are Stanford, Purdue, Villanova, Ohio State College of Engineering, Carnegie Mellon, Yale School of Management, and Duke Fuqua School of Business. Campus contract renewals remain steady and consistent. In a recent InterviewStream Customer Spotlight Webinar, Jamie Belinne from University of Houston’s Bauer School of Business, shared her success story for using InterviewStream in the classroom as a course requirement. She said, “The student’s satisfaction with the MBA required mock interview program is now running about 95-98% on the positive side of the students that participate. The sentiment shifted from complaining about the requirement to hearing students say, ‘This is so great!’ and actually looking forward to mock interviews and peer reviews.”
The importance of mock interviews is evidenced in the most recent NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers) hiring index which surveyed roughly 200 member companies in 2011. The survey found the outlook for college hiring had an increase of 13.5 percent over 2010 and almost half the responding companies expected to increase the number of college hires.
Randy Bitting, CEO of InterviewStream commented, “What we’re experiencing on the campus side is invigorating. Career centers, administrators and professors are using our video interview technology to prepare their students for interviews as well as connect more of their students to employers to reduce campus recruiting costs. Many Fortune 100/500 companies adopt video interviewing platforms such as InterviewStream as a key component of their talent acquisition strategy, which are especially cost effective in the entry-level market.”
InterviewStream’s momentum is translating to record adoption by Undergraduate, MBA, Law and also Admissions’ programs. InterviewStream is currently being used by 21 out of the top 25 MBA programs nationwide and more than 100 new campuses have come aboard so far this year.
