Director Elton Hysa at the launch of Online
Interview Ltd in Dublin this week.
operations are currently based in Chicago and will
be handled in Donegal within the next few months.
Derry-born Mr Casey, who made his fortune in
executive recruiting, said: "Online Interviews...is
built with the reality of recruiting in mind and it
allows the client to better sell their company to
the candidate and vice versa.
“Interviews can be two-way or one-way – or we can
have a number of different hiring managers online at
the one time.
“It is also user friendly for the applicant,
allowing them to re-record answers to a specific
question a number of times until they are happy.
“Candidates don't necessarily need to take off work
to record and submit their answers. They can do it
from the comfort of their home and therefore
eliminate any travel time."
Mr Casey added: “I describe this system as being
like Skype with steroids. Its beauty is that you can
pre-programme questions and answers, follow up with
up to ten hiring manager and allow them to give
feedback to candidates."
The new company was launched with a live webinar
from Chicago in Dublin this week.
“We have a lot of clients that are currently using
it, which has been a huge plus to our development
from the start," he added.
