SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 18, 2012) - Salesforce.com Dreamforce -- Jobscience, the leader in Social Relationship Management for HR and participant in the new salesforce.com Social Apps Showcase, today announced Jobscience Mobile Interviewing, an innovative cross-platform tablet app built on the Salesforce Platform. The announcement was made today at salesforce.com's Dreamforce 2012 in San Francisco. Jobscience will be in booth # 1347 at the Dreamforce Expo.
Jobscience Mobile Interviewing presents comprehensive candidate information to interviewers on-the-spot, captures feedback while impressions are fresh, and enables real-time assessment sharing within hiring teams. This unique app dramatically improves information sharing within the entire hiring team, while accelerating the decision-making process.
"Many times companies are able to bring in top-notch people for interviews, but lose the candidate because they can't make a decision fast enough," said Ted Elliott, CEO of Jobscience. "The hiring process usually breaks down because companies want to make decisions based on interview feedback, but gathering and distilling that feedback is often a cumbersome process. We've designed our Mobile Interviewing app to make the interview feedback process highly collaborative, but also efficient -- in order to speed up hiring decisions."
According to a 2012 Research Now survey, the #1 recruiting and hiring priority for corporations is to "improve the speed of hiring and filling open positions." The survey also cited "streamlining the recruiting and hiring process" as another top priority for corporations.
Hiring managers and recruiters who use the Jobscience Mobile Interviewing app do not need to bring paper resumes to interviews. Instead, their mobile tablets immediately present the candidate's basic information, a resume and a list of everyone scheduled to interview the candidate. They can take notes in the app, which are private to the interviewer. Interviewers can also easily search social media profiles that have been provided by candidates from within the app.
Interviewers are able to complete a simple online assessment of the candidate directly after the interview -- while the information is fresh, and candidate assessments can be instantly shared with the entire hiring team on Salesforce Chatter.
The Jobscience Mobile Interviewing app includes the following functionality:
- Candidate Information Views - Interviewers can view candidate information, resumes and search public social media profiles.
- Candidate Assessments - Candidates are given confidence ratings, which are automatically calculated. Interviewers have the option to include comments in open text. The entire hiring team has access to the ratings and comments.
- Instant Assessment Sharing - Organizations have the option to let interviewers immediately share feedback within the hiring team by posting assessments and/or comments on Chatter.
- Cross-Platform Tablet App - The Jobscience Mobile Interviewing App works on any IOS, Andriod and HP OS mobile tablet that is connected to a wifi or cellular network.
