Barnes Roffe, a leading Top 50* accounting firm that has been established for over 100 years, decided on a new approach for their Graduate Recruitment drive earlier this year. They invited their applicants to a first-round interview by way of a TalkingCV.
The process was simple. TalkingCV is a 3-dimensional tool that combines video, audio and the standard written CV giving a candidate the ability to best portray their skills. In the same way that recruiters conduct first-round interviews each applicant was sent a list of pre-set questions they needed to answer – but instead of staff at Barnes Roffe having to sit through hundreds of 30-45 minute face to face interviews they were able to discern in minutes whether an applicant had the necessary skills for the job.
