CV-Online to start offering online interviewing tools - 06/2001


As an addition to existing online recruitment solutions, CV-Online ( has recently launched a new tool allowing online pre-selection of candidates applying through CV-Online Internet sites.

The online interviewing tool is an advanced scalable solution for companies handling their recruitment process online. The service takes online candidate communication to the next level by asking candidates web-based questions about their skills, competencies and other career-related details. Received answers can be rated and the candidates then listed in order of suitability, which should help making the selection as quick and convenient as possible. Companies can use both ready-made competency based interview questions as well as writing their own ones.

ìOnline interviewing as an application allows companies to save time and money to pre-select suitable candidates, who then will be called for physical on-site interviews. Based on results of questions asked, a recruiter, HR or line manager can then meet with only the candidates who are actually potentially suitable, not just based on their resume, but also on rich information about their skills, knowledge and abilities. Already now we have seen how successful our first customers have been with using the online interviewing,î commented Juri Kaljundi, VP Business Development of CV-Online. ìThe online recruitment field is developing at a fast pace and CV-Online will always be a fore-runner in developing the technical tools to make the process more efficient and user-friendly for both candidates and companies.î
