SALT LAKE CITY – Oct. 4, 2012 – Say goodbye to updating and uploading resumes, completing application forms, phone tag and bad blind interviews. Companies and job seekers alike now have the option of skipping static resumes all together and getting straight to the interview by using OpenVue™ the latest product from HireVue.


HireVue’s OpenVue™ combines social, mobile and video technology to eliminate the hassle, inconsistency and delays of getting the right people into the right jobs. Hiring companies simply broadcast a job-specific link, push notification or QR code to millions of candidates – or a select few – through social networks, geolocation applications (such as Foursquare), email referral campaigns or job postings.


“One of the biggest drags on time and resources for companies with open positions is having to work through hundreds of resumes, and with OpenVue, that process is virtually eliminated. Now candidates have the opportunity to skip right to the interview and show their personalities and their strengths via video from virtually any device with a web cam,” said David Bradford, CEO of HireVue. “OpenVue will be game-changer for companies looking to better connect and engage with the right candidates, faster.”


OpenVue™ highlights include:

  • On demand: Candidates respond to interviews anytime, anywhere; recruiters and hiring managers rate, share and compare responses on their own time – seeing exponentially more candidates in less time

  • Employee referral programs: Employees and executives can easily share on-demand interview requests with qualified alumni, friend and business networks
