While in college, Josh Tolan worked for a marketing firm that experienced exponential staff growth in a short amount of time. With this growth, they also, of course, experienced the pitfall of hiring promising employees who ended up becoming another turnover statistic or were simply just not a good fit for the company. Strongly feeling that there had to be a better way to identify the right candidates earlier on in the interview process and without time-consuming meetings, Josh had the idea for a one-way interview video system, and with that idea, Spark Hire was born.
The one-way video interview is a truly groundbreaking idea that allows for recruiters to essentially “screen” candidates instead of spending valuable time on first-round interviews by having them record answers to pre-listed questions through video software.
“You’re able to review these video recordings at your convenience and share them with hiring managers.
