Description:  Today I met with three representatives from a seven-year-old company called HireVue that is changing the way a lot of people get hired. Founded by a guy named Mark Newman when he was just 20 years old and fresh out of Westminster college in Salt Lake City, HireVue provides one-way video interviews where candidates respond to pre-set questions without a live person on the other side. Job seekers record the interviews at a time of their choosing and hiring managers watch the interviews when they are ready. In other words, instead of showing up someplace for a job interview, you create the interview yourself on video and send it in.
