Spark Hire Releases New App Bringing Video Resume and Interviewing Functionality to iPhone

sparkhireWith the launch of Spark Hire’s free mobile app, job seekers and employers have access to video job and talent search resources. The new app allows job seekers to record a video resume and participate in online video interviews from their iPhone.

“By utilizing the app, both employers and job seekers are able to save time and money by using their smartphone to communicate,” said Josh Tolan, Spark Hire CEO. “In just the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, Apple sold 37.04 million iPhones. Employers and job seekers already own the phones, so we’re enhancing the hiring process by allowing them to use the phone they already have to connect.”

In addition to the resume and interviewing capabilities, users may also manage their active Spark Hire account, receive job math alerts, and communicate with employers through Spark Hire email. The app is also a completely compatible piece of companion software for the greater Spark Hire platform. Employers can also manage their Spark Hire accounts through registered iDevices and maintain their company profile, view their listed jobs, review past video interviews, and interact with job seekers through their Spark Hire inbox.

“We’re always looking for ways to be more efficient and utilize the technology we so heavily rely upon in our lives,” said Tolan. “The Spark Hire app, now in beta, allows you to hold your next job or top candidate right in your hands.”

Currently only available through Apple iTunes for the iPhone, Spark Hire plans to release iPad and Android versions in the near future.
