Vaco San Francisco recently announced that the company has expanded its video interviewing capabilities further, to accommodate the increasing demand for short time-to-hire. The company is a specialist consulting and executive research firm that provides executive job placement and technology consulting.
In a release, Jim Jhanda, managing partner of Vaco San Francisco, stated, "The war on technology talent in Silicon Valley requires that companies speed up the hiring process to beat out the competition. Video interviewing is a key tool in that process. The move to video-based interviews has become a necessity to compete in a very demanding recruiting environment. Companies must move very quickly to fill roles and the interview cycle needs to accelerate. Technology for video interviewing has also improved and is much more cost effective."
Vaco San Francisco offers innovative video-based interviewing for employers. The key facilities of the company include a Vaco studio with VOIP phones, high-definition webcams, and backdrops. Specializing in both direct hire and contract type placements, Vaco also employs iMeet video interviewing technology.
Jhanda explained that most organizations have overcome the issues of potential discrimination and questions that are raised in regard to video interviewing. He further added, "We view video interviewing as simply a way of speeding the time to interview and reducing the number of interviews required to hire, and eliminating most travel costs. This isn't a video resume. The decision to meet the candidate has already been made by the time the video interview takes place. Our industry is leading the way in the demand for rapid time-to-hire, but the race for top talent is heating up in many arenas. Video interviewing has become a key tool in 2012."
The video interviewing technology that the company follows helps it to meet more number of candidates from different part of the country who may potentially move to Silicon Valley for a job. Jhanda pointed out that a candidate from Buffalo, New York was recruited for a new position through video interviewing without the need for extensive travelling to be made.
Vaco San Francisco provides high quality, senior-level accounting and financial professionals on a consulting and project basis. Vaco Resources focus on offering diverse talent in a project-based, cost-effective manner for different regions in the United States.
