Sonru is a SaaS solution for online recruitment. It caters for automated online interviews by having pre-recorded and unattended interview process.
Sonru's video interviewing solution replicates a real live interview. Interviewers create and send (via email) competence-based interviews to candidates (specifying the time allowed to read and answer each questions) - interviewer and candidate do NOT need to be online at the same time.
Candidates record their video responses to the questions in the own time and own location. Stopping halfway through is not an option.
The results of the 'interview' will then be evaluated and shared with colleagues to facilitate for candidate selection. It is a one stone kill many birds weapon.
Sonru is being brought to the Malaysian audience by PowerUpSuccess, a company involves in providing human capital development services.
