New outsourcing tool provides a low-cost option for employers to screen candidates before interviewing in person.
Talkpush, a platform to automate the phone screening of job candidates, today announced the launch of a new service allowing employers to purchase phone interviews online for $1 and get a recording in return. The new service gives employers the opportunity to easily screen candidates with a simple, short recorded interview that they can use to determine whether or not to bring the candidate in for an interview.
"Large companies are able to outsource a lot of their recruitment activity, whereas small business owners have to do it all on their own", said Max Armbruster, founder and CEO of Talkpush. "We wanted to make it easy for employers to find the right candidate without spending too much time to find them".
The $1 Interview addresses the needs of the small business owner, many of whom cannot afford to employ recruiters. This low-cost alternative to recruiters provides employers a professional phone screening service which allows them to listen to all their candidates without having to sit through dozens of screening interviews. The $1 Interview gives companies the means to consider all applicants fairly based on the same selection process.
How It Works
There is a simple three-step process for small businesses:
- The employer creates an account and fills out the interview details at www.talkpush.com.
- Talkpush sends an invite to the designated candidate(s) to answer a series of pre-recorded questions over the phone.
- Talkpush administers those questions over the phone using its interactive voice response system. The interviews are composed of a few standard open-ended questions, which follow recruitment best practices. Candidates are given up to 4 minutes to answer each question.
- The recorded audio of the candidate will be shared with the employer within 24 hours, or Talkpush will reimburse the $1 charge.
