Investors were not disclosed.
Led by co-founder and CEO Suki Shah, GetHired.com is a free service that allows job seekers to create video and audio profiles to accompany their resume, providing a more dynamic perspective on their achievements and work experience. They can also follow their favorite companies so that they are aware of any new or relevant positions available and upload their availability for interviews in real-time so that employers may initiate and schedule telephone, virtual or in-person interviews in real-time.
The platform helps employers post open positions online, even in conjunction with existing job boards, ask customized pre-screening questions for specific positions, search for, pre-screen and track top candidates, initiate and complete the interview process online, in real-time.
