Symphony Talent Releases On-demand Interviewing to Expand Candidate Qualification Beyond the Resume

NEW YORK and LONDON, OCTOBER 27, 2020 – Symphony Talent, a global company that helps organisations transform their recruitment processes and talent experience, released SmashFlyX On-demand Interviewing as part of its recruitment marketing platform. The new module automates one-way video and audio screening and empowers recruiters and hiring managers to “meet” more talent in less time, better evaluating fit and skills.

LinkedIn’s 2019 research revealed 92% of respondents said soft skills are more important than technical skills in driving successful hires. But time-strapped recruiters take an average of just 7.4 seconds to scan a candidate’s resume, which largely only focuses on experience and technical skills.

“As organizations continue to invest in talent marketing and pipelining, recruiting teams need an efficient, human approach to assessing candidates beyond a static resume,” said Symphony Talent CEO Roopesh Nair.

Most virtual interviewing tools in the market are point solutions, providing third-party CRM integrations at best. With SmashFlyX, teams can now automate CRM workflows to prompt on-demand interview screening at critical times, then access the recorded video and audio interviews within the CRM talent profile.

“Video interviewing is new for a lot of people in our current environment, and if we can make it more approachable and less stressful, it’s a win,” said Lisa Bordinat, Symphony Talent’s vice president of customer care and assessments.

Other key features of SmashFlyX On-demand Interviewing include:

  • Audio screening: Candidates can turn off video and recruiters can save hours on phone interviewing while removing another layer of initial bias like appearance and attire.
  • Pre-configured question library: With a 500+ question library built by Symphony Talent’s I/O psychologists, teams can find and scale specific interview approaches and customize templates for future use.
  • Custom branding: Teams can continue their career site and recruitment marketing branding by customising the entire on-demand interview experience.
