Virtual Job Interviews

Job seekers and employers have been able to connect through the Web for years.  Now, an online video system called HireVue seeks to "webify" another element of the hiring process -- the job interview.

Through HireVue, a candidate can participate in an online pre-interview using a webcam and web conferencing software.  This allows employers to pre-screen more candidates before committing to in-person interviews.  Candidates, for their part, can get a better feel for employers early in the process.
